Contact me: I’d love to talk with you,

Who I AmI have a deep sales & marketing background and have worked in industrial, non profit and government environments.  Currently I am a speaker, blogger, college professor and consultant. I consider myself a shoe string marketer; looking to find ways to connect and drive profitable revenue. If you would like a presentation about what Social Media can do for your organization, please contact me. I specialize in B2B social media marketing.

How I’m Different – I am one of the few marketing people with many years of experience  in “traditional” marketing as well as a complete understanding of “new media.” I teach social media at the graduate level.  Currently, many social media consultants come from non-marketing backgrounds. They are web or graphic designers, PR, sales or IT folks. They do not have the marketing expertise to integrate social into the business.

I love to energize groups- Hire me to speak
I guarantee we’ll have fun and our time together will generate great discussion and action. My topics range from healthcare, marketing, social media effects on the enterprise, customer relationship management.

My newest workshop is:
Four Generations at Work: Taming the Know-It-All. 20- somethings and 50-somethings are clashing in the workplace. This 2-hour power packed workshop helps groups:  get at the root of their conflicts, provides tools for post workshop action, is fun, entertaining and powerful.

    Hi Gerard,
    Thank you for the kind words. Not sure where you are but I give talks on social media for job hunters as well as product development, human resources (compliance, recruiting, employees) in addition to marketing.

    Heaven knows we need a little entertainment with our learning. Best to you, Deborah

    Hi Debbie
    Loved your seminar at the Urban League. Maybe we can work together in the future. I didn’t get a card from you and had to leave early, but I would like your powerpoint presentation. I like the way you handle yourself. Nice work. Please send me an email too.
