D-Day 2019

By |Holidays|

D-Day 2019 Today we honor the 75th anniversary of D-Day. D-Day is also known as the Normandy landings and codenamed Operation Neptune. It was the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. It was the most massive seaborne military operation in history and had a significant impact on World War II’s outcome. The operation kickstarted the beginning of the liberation of German-occupied France, and later western Europe, from Nazi control. D-Day laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front. Brief History World War II lasted from 1939 to 1945, with the Battle of Normandy taking place from June 1944 to August 1944. The D-Day battle began on June 6, 1944, with over 156,000 American, Canadian, and British forces landing on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of France’s Normandy region. Being the most massive seaborne military assault in history, D-Day required extensive planning. This included [...]

Memorial Day 2019

By |Holidays, Marketing Leadership|

Memorial Day 2019 To many, Memorial Day means a three-day weekend or a big sale on cars, furniture, and more. While having an extra day off or getting a good deal is always nice, it seems like Memorial Day may have lost its meaning in a sense. Memorial Day is an American holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May. Its purpose is to honor and remember the brave men and women who lost their lives while serving in the United States Military Forces. Brief History Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is believed to have originated in the years following the Civil War. Ending in the spring of 1865, the Civil War claimed more lives than any other conflict or war in U.S history – so many that it required the establishment of the first national cemeteries. In 1868 General John A. Logan called for a nationwide day of [...]

Happy Talk Like Yoda Day!

By |Branding, Creative Marketing Agency, Holidays, Marketing Agency Humor|

'Do. Or do not. There is no try.' - Yoda Are you a Star Wars fan? We are, and no Yoda quote better reflects the spirit of our commitment to helping our clients get more customers, then Yoda's simple directive to Luke Skywalker; 'Do. Or do not. There is no try.' Talk Like Yoda Day and the whole Star Wars saga is a great example of the power of storytelling. Storytelling is also a powerful marketing communications tool. Stories makes it easy for people to understand and connect with with your brand or business. Every great brand or business has its own unique story to tell. Great stories start with a hero, who has a problem to solve. The hero usually meets a guide who gives them a plan and calls them to action, which helps the hero avoid failure and allow the story to end in success. Much like Yoda, Quenzel Marketing Agency is [...]

George H. W. Bush: Presidents Club Thank You

By |Airline Marketing, Marketing Leadership|

Today's news coverage of the rare reunion of the remaining members of the presidents club, reminded me of a Thank You letter that former President George H.W. Bush sent me shortly after his term of office as the 41st President of the United States ended on January 20, 1993. At the time, I was a Houstonian, engaged to a Texas Longhorn and employed at Continental Airlines as Vice President of Marketing Programs. Former President George H.W. Bush's return to Houston was a point of pride for Houstonians and a frequent topic of conversation. During one such conversation at The Forest Club, where my future Mother-in-Law was planning our wedding (and where fellow members Barbara and George H. W. Bush would lunch when in town), she mused; 'I wonder if he will feel as bad about getting downgraded from Air Force One to flying First Class on Continental as I did when I dropped from Platinum Elite to Gold [...]
