Who qualifies to be a Top Cat

  • Established Agencies = Founder/CEO/Chair

  • Startups = Founder/CEO/Chair + secured VC funding or have a seriously good track record
  • Other = Publishers, Editors, Authors, TV Personalities, Establish Journalists, you get the picture.

I’m going to have a chit chat with a few people tonight and stream it live via my mobile. Keep an eye on my Qik account and feel free to comment and ask questions in the live chat room. It might be better to subscribe to my Twitter feed so you get a text message each time I stream live.
