Speaking and Presentations

Speaking and presentations to help with successful marketing

Is your community or your group in need of a little training? I love to share what I’ve learned over the years regarding successful marketing with small budgets and the “small town marketing philosophy.”  It’s important to me that those who attend one of my speaking sessions walk away with actionable items. Most of my speaking engagements are really more like workshops as they’re interactive and attendees work with handouts so they can take what they’ve learned and use it ASAP.

Most workshops focus on successful small-budget marketing. I’m available to consult with your town or business regarding marketing, social media, and what it takes to be a successful digital marketer.  I provide the ideas and the enthusiasm to get you and your group off and running!  Some of my favorite topics relate to Small Budgets, Small Business, Destination Marketing, and Creating Community/Building Relationships.
