With the recent spate of Harlem Shake videos sweeping the internet it was inevitable the fans of Landa would cry out, "Where is Landa's Harlem Shake?"
The current Mrs. Mulvaney delights in telling people that she is not the sole focus of my affections, despite the fact we have been together for 24 years now. Rather shamefaced I have to agree. We share our marriage with Nottingham Forest Football Club (or “soccer club” as the Americans insist on it), with whom I have been enamoured for over 50 years. My club have been in the doldrums since the late seventies when they won the European Club Championship twice in successive seasons, so life has been a bit gloomy on winter Saturdays in the last few years.
My old boss used to say that you have to have somewhere to go during the day – otherwise your wife or partner will find you something to do. He was referring to going to work of course, but I am reminded of his old adage as I write this blog at my kitchen table, trying to avoid being asked to empty the dishwasher or feed the cat. I am actually working in the kitchen because I want to look at the range of packaging in the Mulvaney household as I prepare my presentation for the Packaging Innovations Conference at the NEC in Birmingham later this month.
When I heard that my Landa colleague, Product Line and Segment Manager, Ohad Axelrod, was going to Goa to speak and wanted some sales support, I was on the case like a shot. I reckoned a few days in a balmy South Indian resort on the Arabian Sea at the end of February were just what were needed. I had mentally packed my sari, flip flops and swimming costume, and was working out how to get there when he corrected me….
“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” as the old marketing slogan goes, but not if you are attending the four day EFI Connect conference held there last week. My North American sales colleague, Kristof Dekeukelaere, was part of the Landa team supporting Benny Landa when he took part in the opening “fireside chat” with EFI CEO Guy Gecht, and has been busy reporting back to us. That is, of course, what has been going on in the conference during the day. What my young, single and good looking colleague has been up to at night has definitely “stayed in Vegas”!

I was curious to know if ripples of Nanography® had reached as far away as Australia. So back home in Sydney, I went along to the LIA's (Lithographic Institute of Australia) "Drupa in Review" dinner, to listen and learn about how we featured down under.

I was contacted about a month before drupa by two former colleagues, Kobi Ulmer and Ila Bialystok, checking on my availability for drupa. I am retired so had no conflicts. They explained that Benny had a new company and they wanted me to help present at drupa.
"What is the product?" I asked.
