Spin It Up Local / MSM Strategic Marketing
52 Heritage Ave.
I love to put events together and find the people, gifts, venues, food and drink to make them special. Not expensive, just special. I've been a marketing person for over 20 years from startups to corporate. I've held roles from coordinator to VP of Marketing. I specialize in alliances and collaboration, with a whole lot of technology and innovation thrown in, and know how to find, engage, get commitment from, and delight attendees and participants. From small informal gatherings to huge corporate events, I've done them all. These days I'm working closely with the local creative economy here in the Boston area and am very plugged in to the local artisans, crafts people, foodists and other creatives who can help your business be super successful. I also LOVE to develop the invitations, manage the guest lists, engage the community before during and after the event. AND ... I build and maintain websites and online communities (using Ning, Pathable, WordPress/other blog platforms). Hope I can help you with yours!!
