#HecklersHangout 20 – About ArCompany with @DannyBrown

#HecklersHangout 20 – About ArCompany with @DannyBrown

Originally, our plan this week was to talk to our friend Stacey Hood. Unfortunately, we found out this weekend that Stacey won’t be able to make it. Brian and I talked about who we could schedule on such short notice, and we remembered that something very exciting happened. Hessie Jones announced the launch of her new company, ArCompany. This company is not just a launch from Hessie Jones. Hessie has brought in an amazing team to make her dream become reality. That team includes Andrew Jenkins, Amy Tobin, and Danny Brown. Given the timing, we thought it would be cool if some of these ArCompany folks could come on and talk about their new venture, and in fact, that is just what is going to happen this week!

You can read more about the mission statement of ArCompany in this introductory post by Hessie herself, who unfortunately can’t make it this week but who will be on later in the year. You can also learn more by reading this post from Danny Brown, who WILL be on the show this week.

Brian and I are really excited that we can help spotlight this new effort from so many of our friends. That’s pretty much what we wanted Hecklers’ Hangout to be about. And we are only a little concerned that for the first time we may have Danny Brown and Sam Fiorella on a hangout at the same time.

Buckle your safety belts!

As always, here are the details on how to participate:

Date: February 7, 2013
Time: 7p EST / 6p CST / 5p MST / 4p PST
Guest: Danny Brown (and perhaps more ArCompany peeps)
Topic: The launch of ArCompany

  • Circle Brian Vickery and send a note on Google+ or Twitter for him to add you to the Hecklers’ Hangout circle. You can circle me too, but Brian has all the power :)
  • Make sure you have a good webcam, microphone, and lighting
  • Join the Hangout 15 minutes early for the camaraderie and to resolve any technical issues.
  • If you cannot attend the live Hecklers’ Hangout, then you can watch the LiveStream on Brian’s YouTube channel or Google+ page. You can continue to tweet your heckles to #HecklersHangout. The recorded hangout will be available on Brian’s YouTube channel shortly after the conclusion of the live event and we also post it right away to our Facebook page.

We’re sure this is going to be a great conversation. We hope to see you there!

  1. Thanks for the promo Brian! Now I’m looking forward to being on your show! Be gentle please:)

    • ArCompany took us by storm – I didn’t see it coming. So I’m looking forward to how it takes the connected customers and social businesses by storm. Considering your focus on analytics and business intelligence, I definitely have an interest due to our Pulse Analytics…and core practices of business intelligence and software dev!

      We look forward to Thursday with ArCompany, Hessie…and we look forward to catching you personally on a later Hecklers’ Hangout.

  2. Reblogged this on and commented:
    If you want to find out more about ArCompany. Danny Brown from our team will be on #HecklersHangout 20 with Brian Vickery and Marjie Clayman this Thursday 7:00 p.m. EST.

  3. Wow I just read Hessiej’s post and almost cried (well no a German male dosn’t cry but you know what you mean) She writes so eloquently what I’m trying to express for almost 6 months now.
    See you on Thursday!

    • We are looking forward to it, Frithjof. A nice bonus considering a quick change in schedule. We hecklers are flexible!

    • OK, Danny’s gonna kill me because I am either too late with my replies or I put them in the wrong place. Anyway…. Frithjof, I just finished watching the video and I’m proud of Danny and Amy, who really represented what we’re about.

      Thanks for “crying”. I wish I could make my husband cry but apparently that happens ONLY when my children were born.

      Needless to say that welcome post really helped me figure out what I wanted to do. Danny, Amy and Andrew were the icing on the cake. I knew I couldn’t do this alone and it made sense to only bring the best people on board, who are naturally ‘social” (so I don’t have to babysit them) and who can bring our story to life:) I’m really excited about 2013.

      • That is awesome, Hessie. And we look forward to having you on a more calm and less chaotic Hecklers’ Hangout in the future.

  4. I’m kinda worried now… :)

    • As you should be – the faint of heart look upon their Hecklers’ Hangout guest appearance, and tremble in fear. The less faint of heart, give some heckling back with good measure! Something tells me you will fall in that latter category (as most of our guests do).
