Adobe Summit Welcome,

I had the pleasure of attending the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas, where Satya Nadella (CEO of Microsoft) and Shantanu Narayen (CEO of Adobe) announced new platform capabilities for businesses, leveraging LinkedIn for marketing and sales. Reese Witherspoon was also a keynote speaker and touched on the convergence of digital in film and entertainment and we rounded up the day with an interview with New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.

In one week IMA will be supporting the second annual Notte di Savoia Charity Gala, benefiting Caterina's Club, at the Montage Beverly Hills. Since meeting His Royal Highness, Prince Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, last year, I have grown a strong friendship with him, and connecting him with various friends on the West Coast, including Victor Cho at Evite who created a documentary based on his food truck and becoming a Cavaliere with the American Orders of Savoy.

We are really looking forward to seeing what this year's gala will bring, especially benefiting Bruno Serato's Caterina's Club, which provides thousands of pasta meals to underserved children and families.

We hope you and a guest can join me for this wonderful evening under the stars. If you are interested in attending, please find more information here.
