James Diener at NARM

DIENER INVITATION: A&M/Octone President James Diener will deliver the opening keynote presentation on May 16 at NARM's annual confab at the Hilton Chicago. NARM President Jim Donio says: "Jim brings a wealth of business and creative experience to the table, and yet represents a fresh, new breed of industry leadership and viewpoints.” According to Diener, his keynote will "provide a candid exploration of myths, facts and eventual reality regarding 360 deals. I hope to demystify some commonly held misconceptions.” All that and a rubber chicken, too. (4/6p)
