Need a Speaker or Trainer for Social Media Marketing for Tradeshows, Events or Conferences?

I truly enjoy getting up in front of your group to talk, teach and discuss a lot of things related to tradeshow marketing: social media, staff training, event marketing, booth design, and other elements of tradeshow marketing. I’m available as a speaker in a breakout session at a conference, or as a panelist, or as a seminar leader/speaker/trainer for private engagements.

And with the new book out, I have even MORE to talk about! Think of a program featuring the 14 Steps to Tradeshow Mastery and how your group can benefit from it.
