Keynotes and Workshops and Training…OH MY!

Leslie is a self-proclaimed “social media nerd” and spends most of her spare time either researching or connecting online. Her talks are highly energetic and packed with ACTIONABLE steps to ensure everyone feels empowered and motivated to make changes to their online presence.

As an Adjunct Professor of Social Media, she finds her toughest crowd to be her students – the millennials. They know how to use Social Media for personal use, but they don’t know how to use it for business.
