My successes and my failures help me connect deeply with people, and share some of the ways that small businesses can survive and grow in small towns. Based my experiences using new technologies in my own businesses, I speak on social media, small business, economic development and marketing. Because interactivity is the key to learning, every presentation I do is interactive.
In over 100 events ranging from my own community up to international audiences in the U.K., Canada and Australia, I’ve worked with audiences from 10 people up to 600. Those events include entrepreneur conferences, business groups, small town conferences, tourism associations, economic development associations and chambers of commerce.
Sometimes, you wish your local people would hear what I’m sharing. Maybe you wish you could get your local people working together. Maybe you feel like you’re the only one in town who cares about this stuff. I understand! These are all reasons people have invited me to their town to share these messages with other local people.
Rather than a traditional hour-long presentation, I want to join you and your people in a discussion. We all pull our chairs up together. We get on the same side of the problem, and we all work together on discovering and creating solutions that work in your place.
Because just one session isn’t enough for lasting change, we will also use a webinar to draw locals together before I come to your town, plus a follow up session after.
