Introduction

Hi there. So glad you stopped by to learn a little more about me!

I am best known as a marketing consultant, author, speaker, and educator and I will highlight each of those areas briefly,

Professionally, I am marketing consultant specializing in strategy but I am probably best-known for my writing in the field of social media marketing. My blog {grow} is one of the top business blogs in the world and a well-known podcast called The Marketing Companion. I have four well-known books on the subject: Return On Influence, Born to Blog, Social Media Explained, and The Tao of Twitter, the best-selling book on Twitter in the world.My books have been translated into 10 languages and are available in more than 600 libraries worldwide.

Most of my work focuses on corporate marketing consulting, marketing workshops and social media coaching to large organizations such as IBM, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, and The U.S. AIr Force. I have a great team behind me and we can scale to handle most projects. 

I teach digital marketing classes at Rutgers University and give lectures regularly at universities such as Oxford, Carnegie-Mellon, Princeton,and many others. My books are used as text books for marketing and communications classes in at least 50 universities.

I also enjoy public speaking and have been a keynote speaker at diverse conferences in 15 different countries. Some highlights of my keynote speaking include Word of Mouth Marketing Conference (Tokyo), Social Media Week London, National Economic Development Conference (US), Institute for International and European Affairs (Dublin), and National Dental Association (US).

I look forward to connecting with you.
