Judson Jean-Mary
They're my friends  •  Associate Copywriter, Commonground Marketing. Previously Copywriter, Social Media Strategist, Obama Super P.A.C..

Harry has the ability to analyse highly intricate problems and concepts and turn them into workable solutions.
Marty Cooke
We worked together  •  writer/creative director, Marty Cooke. Previously Chief Creative Officer, US, RAPP.
My sense is that Harry already is a great entrepreneur. His thinking about the nature & practice of creativity is on the very knife edge of ... America's smartest companies. Harry is a professional creative person. I don't know of anybody who's put together a more thorough, thoughtful and usable model for awakening the dormant creative potential in individuals and groups. This venture isn't Harry's first. Even when I worked with Harry as I was just embarking on my career in advertising, Harry was the welcome heretic. He had that rare ability to make me believe that I could do great things when there was precious little evidence in his favor. I'm sure he'll bring this wonderful trait to his next venture, whatever it is.
Jim Glover
We worked together  •  President Head Creative Writer, MultiCultural Creative Consultants and Executive Vice President, Actwo Agency.
He's the most dedicated person I know. Smart as a whip and has the energy of a nuclear plant.
Byron Wagner
We worked together  •  Voice Actor, TGMD TALENT and CEO, MetaWire.
Harry has a near legendary background in the advertising and marketing industry, with a series of groundbreaking milestones to his credit. A ... quick Internet search will reveal a significant number of them, as well as his involvement with global and multinational clients. The question above is a bit misstated, it really should be "Why is Harry already a great entrepreneur?".
Lincoln Stephens
They're my friends  •  Board of Directors, Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce and Advisory Board Member, Mary Allen Museum.
He wrote the book and is building a library.

Since he wrote "A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste" you know Harry will apply his intellect and creativity to the fullest in any entrepren ... eurial project.
Mary Baum
We worked together  •  Veteran creative in all the marketing disciplines obsessed with building digital brands, web typography, online video and tennis.
Harry isn't just intelligent. He's brilliant. He's conquered every discipline he's come in contact with, from Madison Avenue (where his Stuc ... k On Band-Aid Brand campaign is still running) to television, movies and theatre (which he also used as the vehicle to stop a gang war in Los Angeles for two decades.) When the internet came along, most big-agency ad people ran and hid, hoping it would go away and things would get back to normal. Not Harry. He grabbed the web with both arms and started learning to use it as a promotional medium for client work - of course - and to reinvent advertising, pushing the boundaries of content marketing a good five years before other folks coined the term so they could start experimenting. Harry's online column, Madison AveNew, was essentially a blog before blogging software, and it made him famous among ad folks. Finally, Harry is a good friend, who at a particularly low point in my son's academic career helped me understand what was going on and get through the phase. My son did manage to graduate from high school and, after a year working and growing up a bit, will start college in the fall.

Harry Webber is a creative genius who strategically solves complex business problems.
Ted Pettus
They're my friends  •  VP, Co-Creative Director/art, MultiCultural Creative Consultants. Previously President, Actwo Agency.
Over the many years we've known each other, Harry has always impressed me as the ultimate entrepreneur. So much so it was very difficult to ... choose just three of the twelve traits in section three of this questionnaire. I think you will find Harry to be extremely intelligent, tenacious and persuasive in addition to the three I’ve chosen. Harry is truly a renaissance advertising man. He has proven this again and again with various clients. To his credit “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” and “I’m stuck on Band-aid” are just two of the historic ad lines he has written that are still in use today. That said Harry would be an excellent addition to the FounderDating organization.

Harry Webber is brilliant and he doesn't keep his brilliance to himself or just for himself. He shares openly and honestly to serve. So, w ... hile he's a go getter for sure, he genuinely cares about his target. It's nice to know that he has the passion to create wonderful messages… for pay, but its also great that he has the spirit of bringing along, mentoring, helping sharing. It's these qualities that we need more of among entrepreneurs and Harry's got it, and he get's it. It's my pleasure to vouch for Harry.

Harry is outrageously creative with a rare combination of daring and business acumen such as I've never seen in anyone else. He is self-mot ... ivated and, in fact, shines most brightly when he's faced with a challenge.
