My background in journalism helps me explain how the news media work -- and how to develop a ‘story’ that grabs the reader’s attention. With 15 years of marketing experience with firms in accounting, engineering, law and architecture, I understand how to market business professional services. You’ll benefit from the work I’ve done to apply the skills that have succeeded in print media, to content marketing and social media. I’ve authored four books on thought leadership, publish my own articles, and make public presentations frequently -- part of sharing knowledge and staying current with developments. I've given close to 100 speeches, workshops and other presentations on building a professional profile, to audiences throughout the US and Canada
