Josh held a Social Media Bootcamp this past weekend and it was extremely educational and informative. I’m an avid user of Facebook and LinkedIn but I learned more than I thought there was to know about social media. He taught us how to make social media work for our business and how to keep your audience engaged. I highly recommend his workshop for anyone looking to grow their business! Thanks Josh!”
– Leila N., Event Evangelist, Eventbrite

When I was first invited to listen to a free presentation on Social Media, I thought ‘great, another person giving a broad overview of social media.’ However, my expectations were completely off the mark. I was so impressed with Josh’s presentation, the detail of tactical information and tips he provided, that I hired him to speak to my organization on social media. He’s presentation was a huge success. Thanks Josh!

    Josh’s former Disney employer says…


    “Josh is eager, persistent, positive and, well, people just like him. Even now, when Josh drops by for a visit employees of every level pop out of their offices to say hello. Josh’s people skills are awe inspiring. And best of all, like Superman he uses his power for good, not evil. He has renegotiated deadlines, coaxed extra effort out of vendors, wheedled talent into extraordinary PR – and always, the people who work with Josh feel lucky, happy and relaxed. That’s the magical part. Josh’s attitude is relentlessly sunny. Throw him a moody executive, harsh feedback, an insurmountable “No” and Josh rebounds effortlessly. His refusal to respond personally to professional setbacks helps to keep the entire team focused on the business objectives during tense and potentially contentious negotiations.”
    – Lisa Clements, Director of Marketing at Walt Disney Studios


    “Josh- Thanks for a great Social Media Breakfast- I’ve been to a number of social media conferences recently and this is truly the first time I walked away with not only new information, but a solid action plan.” – Marissa Latini
