2022 Davey Awards, Silver Award for Best Podcast Co-hosts

The largest and most prestigious awards competition exclusively for the “Davids” of creativity. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small agencies do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets.

The Giants Behind the Davey
The Davey Awards may be for smaller companies, but the judges have big reputations. The Davey is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms.

AIVA members include executives from organizations such as Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Worktank and Yahoo! and many more.

The Rabbi and The Shrink Grapple with the Ethical Grays

Join The Rabbi and The Shrink as we confront dilemmas that challenge speakers’ values and integrity in this lively, interactive program. Rethink strategies essential to navigate obvious and unexpected ethical landmines.
Revitalize your professional ethics and practices. Explore what to say to whom, where, when, and how as we promote a vibrant, judgment-free, and ethical workplace culture.


Three common challenges spark candid conversation, followed by discussion topics solicited from participants.

  • When does self-censoring become ethical compromise?
  • How do we respond to ethical missteps toward ourselves and others?
  • How do we negotiate the slippery slope of delicious humor?


  1. Identify ethical conflicts specific to speakers
  2. Evaluate the wisdom of and context for self-censoring
  3. Examine diplomatic solutions for addressing thorny topics
  4. Manage the tension between ethical expectations for ourselves and for others
  5. Develop strategies to diffuse conflicts before they happen


Ethics are complicated as business environments continuously change. It’s not enough to know what is ethical; we must prepare ourselves to face real-life challenges. Frank discussion and civil debate foster clarity in values, issues, and solutions that may save a contract, a conference, and the reputation of all parties. Update your mindset and skills as we explore effective communication strategies.


  1. Clarify your core values
  2. Define your personal code of ethical behavior
  3. Rehearse uncomfortable conversations with advisors, colleagues, clients, and vendors
  4. Anticipate potential points of conflict
  5. Design and implement ethical speaking practices
