How We Serve

Chamber Pros Insider: Exclusive (private) professional development for serious chamber pros. Special emphasis on social media, digital marketing and modern business strategies. Connect with hundreds of your peers and colleagues to “Learn. Share. Grow.” 

When you don’t have time to waste (and want to be among the very best in the chamber industry), be an Insider. 


• Professional Speaking: Boldly bringing new ideas and new ways of thinking to the chamber industry. This is no time to learn about how things used to be done. Social media, digital marketing and modern business strategies for chambers and their members. 

When you want your audience to be exposed to seemingly radical ideas and new ways of thinking, call me. It is my job to find the best of what’s working elsewhere and give the strategies to you! 


• Chamber Industry Consulting: We only work with organizations that are open to change and new ways of doing things. Everything is on the table today. Everything. Board retreats, long- and short-term strategic planning, individual and group coaching, etc. 

When you and your board are willing to rethink everything, when you are ready to leverage the changes that are upon you, call me.
