Speaking

What you can expect?

I like to take abstract and technical topics and break them down to simple ideas that are relevant and accessible to an audience.  Most of all I love to share what I have learned in a friendly, energetic atmosphere where everyone is interacting, asking questions and absorbing it all.  My goal is to always have the audience walk away with useful information that will help them reach their goals.

About Me

The desire to teach comes from as far back as I can remember even as a child.  Well, nothing’s changed and the passion hasn’t faded a bit.  I still get excited when someone’s face lights up as they have those a-ha moments.  For the past twenty years, I’ve worked at large corporations like Motorola and Nikon as well as for local government.  At each job, I always took the opportunity to train and present even if it wasn’t part of my original job description.

Although my background and skill sets are very diverse, from coding web pages to the finer points of marketing and public relations, it all boils down to communication.  I find it a fascinating topic especially when considering how much the internet has effected how we all communicate globally.

As the owner of Rosiemedia, I revel in being an entrepreneur continually learning and treating every day as an adventure!  Being a Certified Duct Tape Marketing Consultant gives me plenty of solid marketing content to share along with being an Authorized Local Expert for Constant Contact.  (I will never stop learning, but I promise to share what I find.)  I speak in front of groups both large and small for all sorts of organizations from local networking groups, Chambers, SCORE workshops and larger industry trade shows.
