At the last Awards Breakfast, Pattie Meyer, who heads the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce TV initiative, walks up to me, hands me a microphone, and asks me to talk about the benefits of Manhattan Chamber of Commerce membership.

I’m always ready to talk about that, so it wasn’t a problem. In fact, I rather enjoyed it. Plus, I enjoyed putting my ever-so-brief improv training to work.

There you have it. In my own words.
