From Some of Our
"Through the first six months of our new pricing structure, we
continue to see double-digit growth in our full-run retail revenue. Our
customers have embraced the new program, but more importantly, our Account
Executives believe in it, and are not afraid to sell through it.
"Kubas gave us the confidence to move forward with a bold, new approach
to our pricing. I don't think we could have pulled this off on our own."
Actual results: change from 2003 to 2005 for retail display:
- Revenue under contract: +9.6%

"Have you ever seen Len Kubas in action? I have now used Len twice to
introduce new pricing concepts - first at The Dallas Morning News and at The
Oklahoman. Wow!!! What a difference he made.
"He helped draw focus to needed change and new thinking. The folks here
have gotten excited about what he introduced and have been developing pricing
strategies that will make this company a lot of dough. We are in the process
of overhauling our rate structure and simplifying the rate card.
"At The Dallas Morning News he is still being used for some projects and
certainly valued for what he brought to us there. For what it's worth, I know
all of us are needing new ideas. Thought I would share the experience.

Express-News, San Antonio, Texas)
"Thank you for your presentation and talk at our recent Northcliffe
Advertising Conference. I know that you will have realised that your
presentation went down a storm by not only the appreciative reaction you got
from audience but also by the number of supportive questions and comments
your talk generated.
"However, I feel compelled to tell you for the record what a superb
presentation it was - really interesting concepts and ideas delivered in an
engaging and entertaining way.
"In particular, we really appreciate the time and effort you put into
understanding our products and business - it was evident throughout your
presentation that you were well versed in not only the UK market but
Northcliffe's specific markets as well. It really made the difference and you
connected with everyone.
"You have given Northcliffe some real food for thought and, as you know,
as a result of your talk a major initiative is to be launched with your
guidance and input.
