The end of summer does premiere one good thing-- the return of our favorite television shows and the introduction of some new potential favorites. Perhaps a remake of an oldie but a good, such as Hawaii Five-0.

In this brief, we showcase author Jared Brox's adaptation of a classic-- Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. He derives productivity killers from the dwarfs' stereotypes.

Enjoy the DE brief, and contact us with any questions.

Cheers,
