Cultural Capital is more than production, consulting, or strategy. Expertise comes from CEO Peter Herdrich’s practice as a leader in media companies and in cultural and educational organizations. There is no one else in the world who can say he has produced syndicated news shows, run a learned society, succeeded as a CEO, and co-founded an international NGO that combats cultural racketeering. (And if there is, let me know, we’ve got a lot to talk about.)
