These are a few titles clients
have given me through the years.
Some have described my career
journey as eclectic, starting as a high school band director and segueing
through a series of business endeavors where I applied my sales, marketing and communication
skills in fascinating ways.
Entrepreneurial? Yep, I
checked that box too, launching three successful startups. The first, a
home-based typesetting business in NJ that generated more part-time income than
my full-time teaching job.
In 2002 I landed a pivotal job
in the events industry that would put me on a new path where the focus was on
event experience design, marketing and sponsorship. Association annual
conferences were largely my domain, as I helped clients explore best ways to
deliver more value to their audiences, while doing so in a way that made sense
for their organization.
