I'm honored to have over 1.7 million followers via various online social media channels (including 650k on Facebook alone), along with more than 130k email subscribers.
I've been building my platform with a strong background in Internet Marketing since 1999, growing my email list and adding Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels in 2007. My approach comprises these two simple aspects:
1) I strive to consistently deliver valuable, actionable and relevant content that helps my audience of brands, business owners, executives, entrepreneurs and working professionals achieve their personal and professional goals.
2) As the author of 'The New Relationship Marketing,' I practice what I preach. In short, I truly see my audience not as followers or fans – but as real friends!
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR BRANDS & BUSINESSES: As a credible and trusted influencer with a fiercely loyal following, my corporate clients are able to align with me as a Brand Ambassador/Evangelist and/or Spokesperson that can put a positive, passionate and enthusiastic face to your product, campaign or service.
WHERE YOU’VE SEEN ME: As a Presenter and Speaker, I’ve shared the stage with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, the Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle, Arianna Huffington, Paula Abdul, Tony Robbins, Guy Kawasaki and many, many others.
I’ve also been featured in mainstream media by publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Inc., Forbes, Fortune and SUCCESS Magazine.
On a personal note, I was born in Canada to Scottish parents and spent my childhood in rural BC. Then, lived in Scotland for 20 years, before emigrating to San Diego, California, in 1999. I've enjoyed the beautiful climate and land of opportunity ever since!
Although shy as a child, I've honed my public speaking skills since my 20s. I’ve spoken to groups ranging from 30 to 25,000 people. I'm six feet tall with a fun Scottish-Canadian-California accent and a smile that won’t stop!
