Ideal Audience and Working with You
My ideal audiences are:
- Entrepreneurs and mainstream small businesses
- Associations and member organizations that support small businesses
- Enterprises whose primary customers are small business.
As a professional speaker, I am represented by a number of professional speaker bureaus. So, if you are a bureau or represented by one, know that I understand how to work with you. If you represent an association, please contact me directly – information at bottom of this page.
The topics of my presentations are focused around both the use of new media marketing and related technologies (such as mobile), as well as their influences on the business environment and where it is trending.
Practical Business Experience
As the founder and operator of a “brick and mortar” construction services business for 20 years, I understand the small business mindset.
I speak the language of small business. I understand their challenges – what it is like to meet budgets, to go out and get customers, and to keep them in both prosperous and challenging times. I understand what it is like to cover a payroll, to deal with bureaucratic regulations, and to work in competitive situations that are both fair and unfair.
This is why my greatest value to audiences is not only my understanding of new media marketing and business trends, but my ability to present everything in a context that is easily understood and readily implemented.
In fact, in addition to my authentic and informative style, audiences especially value my skill for simplifying technology and complex business ideas to make them practical and useful.

Whenever a date is held or confirmed by my office, it immediately appears on this schedule. If you notice that I plan to be in your area, please contact me and I’ll be happy to arrange a personal meeting.

Accelerate the Growth of Your Business by Designing it Around Social
The social version of anything is more engaging and will out-perform non-social. Smart businesses today realize that social is not just a layer to add to their marketing, but an essential component that has to be baked into every aspect of the business. People are hard-wired to connect and engage with others, and anything that works against that is friction that inhibits your success. Learn how to go beyond social media technologies to rethink and redesign your business around the principles of social.

Working with Me
It is best that we talk personally to discuss fees.
You will find me easy to work with, thorough in my pre and post-program work, and willing to do more than most speakers for the same fee, such as writing an original article for your publication.
Finally, have a look around while you are here.
Embedded within this site are hundreds of articles, with many of them directly attributable to my work with small business audiences, such as this one for local retailers.
Here’s a link to press coverage of the keynote presentation that followed that article.
