David Landgraf is a storyteller, and if you have an event, he wants to tell your story. In this episode, we discuss the importance of getting those stories right. We also discuss the unique ability to see the details while not losing site of the big picture, staging in NYC, and we wrap with a topic near and dear to David’s heart: Sustainability.
