Marketing * Public Relations * Branding * New Business Development
With more than 20 years of experience in marketing, communications, and branding, what I do continues to be so much fun and always intriguing. I’m naturally inquisitive and I enjoy learning. Plus, with the advances in technology and our evolving culture marketing is ever-changing.
I have been an internal leader of Marketing Departments, and as an outside consultant championing growth in the High-Tech (IT hardware, software & services), Title Insurance/Real Estate, Finance and Banking, Tourism/Entertainment, and Business Services industries. Each industry has its nuances and the fun part of my craft is fitting the pieces together to make the businesses grow and prosper.
As a Marketing Strategist and Business Growth Consultant I am focused on:
✶ Advising CEOs and Corporate Leaders to prioritize corporate imperatives and develop short-to-long term marketing strategies that evolve the brand, ignite market penetration, and fuel revenue growth.
✶ Consulting/Coaching for Marketing & Advertising Agencies that want to learn client acquisition strategies and gain insight on building effective communications plans and press releases.
✶ Teaching Business Owners & Entrepreneurs to analyze current states and implement unique Marketing tactics to achieve breakthroughs in local, national, and global markets.
✶ Speaking / Presenting in corporate and industry events/conferences to bring insight into the practical world of Marketing and Advertising.
