I want to help your business tell your best story, then show you how to measure the results.

You can find me most frequently on Twitter @leslie (Say hi! I love making new connections.)

If you need help with marketing and with organizing your business around social results in all departments, tracking metrics or knocking your content marketing out of the park, call me. I'd love to help.

For a glimpse at the other things I do, check out my website (or just hit me up on social media and start a conversation with me about it - that's the real deal.)

Do you wonder what to start a conversation with? That's easy! I'm into music, books, movies, politics, psychology, sports and more. Find me and tell me what you're into. I want to know.

If you are here about the books I've written, or to collaborate on a writing project, hit me up on my web site.

Oh, I'm also the Social Media Editor for McKinsey & Company. I love what I do.

I know YOU. And you are awesome to know.
