A Little About Me...
Photo by Kathy DIsney - she's great!
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a writer & speaker on all sorts of industry topics. I'm also a veteran planner (I did my corporate time for seven years, then owned a third party company for 11 years, and now
I run SPIN - www.spinplanners.com)
and The Hive Network (www.thehivenetwork.org). I'm also an occasional sales trainer and mentor to frustrated meetings industry suppliers trying to find a better way into the hearts and minds of planners.
I believe in 100% candor - otherwise, nothing changes and the industry just keeps on keepin' on. I also believe nothing should get done without a little fun thrown in (unless you're the IRS).
Check out the menu at the left for all the ways I share my research, viewpoints and experience.
