    Stephanie. You are the consummate professioanl. Your article about me was so special. I hope you will kindly consider an interview with Lisa Tenner. Of course, I know, you must check with the editor at the Las Vegas Business Press. I can tell you that Lisa is so talented. I highly recommend this. Also, may I invite you to RICARDOS as my guest again for lunch?
    Thanks from the bottom of my HEART,

    Request for Interview With Las Vegas Icon Lisa Tenner/Film Business Angle

    You know that Bruce Merrin Public Relations is celebrating our 42 year anniversary. Our family moved to Las Vegas in 1956. My dad was the Exec VP and Gen Mgr of the Flamingo.
    So I have met many successful Las Vegas business icons. Lisa Tenner is ONE!!!!!
    Please consider an interview with Lisa who has been a long time local Las Vegan.
    I believe that the Film Business Angle is a strong one, because our city needs a re-boost
    In the film arena, and Lisa Tenner is leading that charge. Here are some bullet points:
    Lisa Tenner/Tenner and Associates Inc/

    1)Lisa is currently representing FILM PRODUCERS and SHOW RUNNERS in overall project management, from pre-production, to supervising post production services. Just ONE
    Of her clients is Actor/Film Producer Todd James Myers. He starred in “LASSO” a rodeo thriller production/Dragon Fly Films. Todd’s follow up film is for Sean Patrick Flanery. Then Todd James Myers will produce the adaptation of his book: “The Fall” I can produce other Hollywood film industry clients that Lisa represents
    2)Lisa Tenner is under consideration now for PRODUCING SUPER BOWL HALF TIME show with her creative incorporation of technology and musical talent for the METRODOME SUPER BOWL Feb2018, and has already designed the half time and dead time portions of past programs. Lisa was with Gwen Stefani Saturday night at Gwen’s blockbuster concert.
    3)Tenner has been a producer for VH1 and Fox
    4)Lisa was the mastermind who brought the very first MUSIC CONFERENCE featuring
    The legendary Sir George Martin in as the inaugural keynote speaker and told him, “George
    One day your name will be in lights here in Las Vegas”….and now he lives on through the spectacular BEATLES “LOVE” show.
    5)Tenner is best known in Las Vegas for representing recording artists who in excess have sold
    Over 100 million records and for creating and producing “Emerging Artists and Technology in Music”….EATEM!!!! This blockbuster event preceded all MEGA MUSIC EVENT AWARDS AND FESTIVALS in Vegas.
    6)Lisa’s clients in Vegas have included: Hard Rock Hotel; Caesars Entertainment; WSOP and Harrahs. Her philanthropy work has been through the Queen of Hearts team she CREATED
    For WSOP and for Poker Gives which raised nearly 500K for Special Olympics, Fallen Heroes and other worthwhile charities.
    6)Lisa was awarded the Governors award for TOURISM, was named as one of the 25 visionaries to watch by Global Gaming Magazine and has been an advisor for AGA and G2E for 10 years.
    7)Tenner moved to Las Vegas from Los Angeles, where she operated her business management company for 20 years following a career as a securities trader and a former member of the NYC Ballet company.
    She is available for a private interview. Lisa Tenner’s contributions to Las Vegas have been monumental.
