It's tough to measure success for something that doesn't exist yet

The language of music meets the language of business in this unorthodox examination of the influences and impact that creativity, improvisation, and collaboration have within an organization.

Using interviews with successful business people who also were (or still are) professional musicians, musician/ad tech thought-leader Todd Pasternack takes readers through Lessons From The Road: Musicians As Business Leaders using real-world stories "from the road" to help today's business leaders find fresh ideas to bring back to their organizations to create innovative products and solutions, build stronger teams, and more quickly connect dots in unexpected and valuable ways.

Featuring Interviews with:

  • Rob Avery, Scala, Digitas Health and bass player for Boysetsfire
  • Jimmy Chamberlin, CEO of Blue J Strategies and drummer for the Smashing Pumpkins
  • Reid Genauer, CMO at Magisto and guitar and vocals for Assembly of Dust
  • Anurag Gulati, Uber, Facebook, studio owner and engineer
  • Cat Kolodij, Progressive Insurance, guitar and vocals for Working

    About the Author

    After being a professional musician for over ten years (writing, recording, producing, touring internationally) Todd Pasternack had the unbelievably good fortune of becoming just as passionate about creating with code and technology as he was with musical instruments. Todd transitioned full-time into digital marketing design, development, and ultimately strategy and product development.

    Over the years, Todd has consulted on advertising technology for brands and agencies such as Ford, Apple, Showtime, Nike, American Express, Coke, R/GA, W+K, BBDO, and built and grew relationships with strategic, technology and publisher partners such as Facebook, Microsoft, Adobe, Twitter, Comcast, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CBSi, and others.

    When Todd isn't geeking out on ad tech, he's spending time with his wife and two sons in Palo Alto, CA. You might also find him playing guitar and singing alongside his wife on bass and vocals in one of their music projects.
