Who Are You? 2011

It has been two years since the last Adaptistration reader survey; as such, it is high time to find out more about you. The last survey was enormously helpful in guiding Adaptistration’s content and overall direction and I’m sure this survey will be no different. Just like the last time, I’m going to make it worth your while to answer all of these questions by offering a set of free subscriptions to Adaptistration Premium…

In order to facilitate participation, the survey is designed to be quick and easy. The survey should only take seven minutes or less to complete and consists of a series of questions divided into four sections. You will be asked about your:

  • demographic info.
  • value and satisfaction with media outlets.
  • online usage habits as they relate to culture content.
  • observations and opinions regarding Adaptistration.

About the Adaptistration Premium Subscription Drawing

The subscription winners will be selected at random from among completed surveys on or around Tuesday, February 1, 2011. There’s no purchase necessary to enter the drawing and no requirement to purchase any additional subscriptions, it is a pure give away at its best! All you have to do is complete the Adaptistration Readership Segmentation Survey; the winner will only be notified by email so make certain you enter a valid email address in your survey (or you’ll never know if you won!!).

The estimated odds of winning will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. Prizes are non-transferable and no substitution or cash equivalent of prize are permitted. Federal, state and local taxes, if any, and any other costs or expenses related to acceptance and use of the prize not specified, are the sole responsibility of the winner. If the winner does not respond to notification email within seven calendar days, he/she forfeits all claim to the prize and another winner will be selected. Employees of Drew McManus LLC and immediate family members and household members of Drew McManus LLC, whether related or not, are ineligible.

Prizes include:

  • One (1) full access pass, valued at $80.00, through December 31, 2011.
  • Two (2) single subscription passes, valued at $50.00 each, through December 31, 2011. Winners may opt for either the Compensation Report or Website Review subscription.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
