About

I enable thought leaders, authors and gurus to monetize their content through books, keynote speaking, the creation of training services and products and consulting and assessment tools. I start at the strategic stage, define the target market, assist in the creation of the offerings and solutions and lead business development, sales and marketing of those solutions.

 

I also help companies use thought leadership as a strategic marketing tool that drives business results.  It is an effective and fun way to gain interest and heighten the level of engagement with prospects and clients.  Most importantly it is a viable way to differentiate yourself, your products or services and your company.

 

I’m an entrepreneurial-minded leader who leverages the power of internal and external relationships to accelerate growth within emerging and high-potential companies that have powerful intellectual property. Accomplishments include start-ups, turnarounds, and M&A (in the b2b services sector)—with results driven by practical strategy, focused execution, and a disciplined method of cost control.

 

I’m also an information junkie and an avid reader of business books.  Taking great content and creating a platform to best support it takes a combination of art, science, logic, focus, passion and creativity.
