The Women's Centre - New Start Program
Topic: Writing a Business Plan, Marketing Plan and Selling Skills

After working together for three years, I wanted to take the time to let you know how much The Women's Center and I appreciate the incredible work you do for us.

it is hard to believe that this year will be the fourth edition of the New Start Program for Entrepreneurial Women. Your three-day workshop on marketing is always a highlight of the program. You have demonstrated an innate ability to connect to the group of women ready to learn from the best and your delivery of the material is clear, complete and fun. There are so many marketing instructors who tells students what to do in a lecture-like style. You always offer so much knowledge and with an experiential component that supports the efforts of these women starting their own business. The feedback from the various groups each year has always reconfirm my belief that I was hiring one of the best marketing experts.

I myself have had the opportunity to work closely with you on my own business, RISE International. Our meetings and your guidance were instrumental in bringing clarity to my business. I look forward to working with you again this year with the New Start program and for many years to come.

Flamborough Chamber of Commerce
Topic: Marketing Your Business

Thank you SO much. I think you are one of the best presenters I have seen. The first thing I noticed is that you arrived with your own screen and projector. You would be surprised at the number of speakers who do not have their own equipment. I also noticed that you inserted the Flamborough Chamber logo into the lead page, a simple thing - but pleasing to the host. Your slides were also interesting because of the use of animation.

Thank you for your presentation this morning. Your presentation was one of, if not the best and most enjoyable, but I have been to. I usually ENDURE sessions similar to this, but have to say this was very enjoyable. Thanks for a job well done.

Seminar: The Truth About Sales & Cold Calling!

I just wanted to say thank you for the informative seminar on Sales and (no!) Cold Calls last night. The most important thing that I took away from the evening is that I really need to find my focus and goals of where I want my business to go. I can see that up to this point I have been operating blindly, not to any sort of plan. I know my product with passion, but I don't know how to sell it. I had just, the day before, arranged to run an ad in an animal related magazine. But after listening to you, I think I should stop and think before proceeding. Therefore, I will take the money I would've spent on that ad and put it towards finding marketing strategies that may be more beneficial to that end. Thanks again!

The BAD Women's Network
Topic: The Marketing Express

On behalf of all the BAD Women (and Joe) that attended last night's meeting, thank you very much indeed for great presentation. It was a very neat and concise presentation timed just right, not too wordy, not too complicated. We liked that it was direct with points that hit home. Your great hand-out means a quick review is possible just by scanning down the sheet. All told, your presentation fit the bill in every way. We often know the things we should be doing to promote our business, but as you said procrastinate about getting down to the nitty-gritty. Thank you for letting us ride on the marketing express.
