Interview April 25 on Insight on Business: The News Hour  


Need to Make a Difference in Your Community with some Solid Advice?  Let me help with an interactive keynote, workshops or an extended visit.

I listen, ask questions and identifies ways to help small towns and rural areas reclaim their character and purpose.   Let me provide the guidance and structure necessary to get conversations moving in the direction of accomplishment.  Be assured that your audience will leave with solid advice they can put to work when they get home, and they’ll know they are not alone in their quest to make their towns a place they want to live, work and play.

You’ll receive common sense advice based upon my work experience and the experiences of other small towns I’ve helped. 

My programs on small business, what to do with empty buildings, customer service, marketing and economic development have been received by chambers, economic developers, tourism specialists, museum experts, business groups, and small town conferences.


Take the next step!  Head over the Book Deb page and let’s talk some more.
