Josh D’Amaro, Chairman Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, will now host a weekly series on LinkedIn. D’Amaro shares, “For the past year, I’ve been recording video messages to our Cast, Crew, and Imagineers with updates and thoughts about our business. I thought I’d take a shot at broadening the audience and doing something similar for all of you on LinkedIn. Whether you’re a fan of Disney, a Cast Member, or a future Cast Member…I hope you enjoy.”

This will be a great video series to learn more about the Disney company.
