bmt episode 2: featuring ronn torossian

December 6th, 2008

In the BMT series, the objective is to have a conversation based around the same 3 questions with various people who are successful in their field. The goal is to reveal that behind every success…there is a business mind thinking!

BMT Episode 2 features the very successful and equally blunt Ronn Torossian, Founder/CEO of 5W Public Relations. 5W Public Relations is a full-service public relations firm maintaining practice areas in consumer, technology, health and wellness, entertainment, lifestyle, fashion, and corporate communications. 5WPR’s energetic, fast-paced, and focused culture earned the firm a spot on the INC. 500 list in 2007 and the title of “fastest-growing agency” three years in a row.

Brace yourself to hear an exchange of ideas that’s never presented on a typical network or cable business show. If you ever longed to hear a very honest and mostly unedited perspective on how the mind of a successful entrepreneur really thinks, this episode is tailored made for you!!!

    Love the interview, it allowed me to learn somethings. I liked the fact you are always over prepared, I would make sure I could answer any question but having three things to concert that problem is something I hadn’t though of before.

    This is just a little piece of criticism… maybe you should have three camera’s; one pointing at you, one at the interviewee and another on a wide showing both of you. I feel it would make the production better and look more professional, maybe its budget that stops you doing it but what is said in the interviews is really good, so surely it’s worth it. Also you could then sell the interviews on DVD..gaining back the money.

    Look forward to the other interviews

    I always get something out of this site.

    and @ aRCe…its not a interview! Clearly you didn’t read the fucking description…its a conversation…a candid conversation..I believe it’s suppose to come off raw, and unrehearsed…I think it would lose something if it were over produced…have you ever seen Charlie Rose?..that shit is madddd simple to produce, but yet is been on for how many years…??? Anyway..I loved it. Ronn has this ruthless vibe to him…..watch your pockets!…jus jokin.

    I like this one a lot better, the one with you and Kaws seemed too short…and Kaws seemed to laid back..maybe that’s how he is…

    aRCe, for a single cam shot its really good, its not like the camera is all over the place…it’s a pretty steady and consistent thru out…but I went to your blog and you’re majoring in Broadcast in school so of course you would have something to say…

    And plus it’s for a blog…not TV, I’m sure if it were for TV things would be different…and like Tothetop said…it’s a conversation. And Ronn does have that wise guy vibe to him…LOL! and what’s up with the cigar???

    coming from a perspective that we otherwise wouldn’t have insight on = priceless knowledge

    your idea of ducks is the perfect visual to something many of us feel already…

    so thank you

    This was really cool. I know a person who used to work for Ronn and told me a lot of shit on how he was a mad man. Watching this conversation really cleared up rumors planted in my mind. Ronn has his core values really defined and I guess people who don’t have any values themselves mistake trying to do anything to reach your goals as being unreasonable.

    Great Conversation. and whoeva was talking about the camera angles and such is buggin…have you eva seen a Consequence video…now that shit is crazy…I literally threw up from being dizzy watching one of his video…no diss, or is it? anyway..I like how this was captured. a very honest, raw conversation. Thanks.

    I wasn’t saying this is a bad interview, I liked it and for a single camera the camera guy did good. Maybe cause I’m a broadcast student it made a difference but I found all the camera moving annoying and thought that it would have been better if there were three cameras shooting it.
    I understand its a blog video and therefore it doesn’t have to be high budget or look good but I thought because the content was really good and people would buy this stuff Sakiya could up the production values and sell it.

    As for the Consequence videos I think they’re alright because they’re meant to look as if your in the room with these famous people. They’re less of interviews and more vox pops because they’re spurr of the moment stuff, unlike this interview which, although isn’t just simple answer questions is clearly set up (i.e. they decided to meet and talk about business)

    So yeah I understand that people think I was bugging for no reason but I was actually more praising but giving a little bit of creative criticism. Sakiya can take it which ever way he wants and I’m definitely gonna watch the next ones.

    I always said that to my self! even though I am only a student and working hard to complete my studies with succes I dont strive for making big money! the thing that keeps me motivated is that I gain knowledge and more knowledge.. I am satisfied with what I have.. that doesn’t mean I don’t have aspirations get more out of me. that just means that sometimes you gotta apreciate what you have achieved to feel the satisfaction. otherwise you keep on goin and goin and you never get the time to reflect!


    Your thoughts are very inspirational saKiya! thank you for sharing!
