Workshop List

 I’m passionate about helping folks learn and grow and I enjoy meeting face-to-face and not just here in cyberspace!

Over the years I’ve worked with groups large and small on topics as micro as twitter and as macro as creating a full marketing plan. I can create an event just for you and your group.
