In order to build that company, she had to learn how to “speak up” and talk to strangers so she could network effectively and find clients and strategic partners. Today, as a speaker and networking strategist with more than 25 years’ experience in marketing, she works with other quiet people on feeling more comfortable starting conversations and connecting. Her services are in demand by professionals who want to feel more confident initiating and building relationships that support their business success.
