I have been consulting with businesses on digital marketing and internet strategy for over 12 years. I bring a wealth of business and life experience (and a sense of humor) to the stage, along with years of speaking experience.
Each talk can be specifically tailored to each audience as needed.
I prefer to custom tailor my presentations to the audience in the room. A group of college students is looking for far different information that a group of small business owners or a room full of CEOs. Nevertheless, it’s valuable to see the types of things I talk about. Accordingly, I’ve included a list of topics I’ve presented recently, along with links off the slides where appropriate.
- Awesome finds awesome: The power of shared content in the era of social networks
- Managing Your Personal Online Reputation: Interpreting and Influencing Search Results
- Think Like a Search Engine: Out-think, outsmart and outmaneuver your competition
- Social Media & Your Career: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
- SEO for Social Media Marketers
- How Social is Changing the Search Landscape
- The Power of Community
With nearly 20 years of real world business experience in a variety of roles, I have spoken to groups ranging in size from 20 to over 500 and my presentations are consistently both thought provoking and actionable.
