Thank you for taking a moment to learn about me!
I am a writing coach, published author, and founder of Create-a-Buzz Writing & Communication Workshops.
Create-a-Buzz reflects my personality, my writing experience, and my love of facilitation.
Writing & Communication: I wasn't always a writer. (Just ask my first college English professor.) My passion for writing grew, first throughout my role as communications and PR manager with a $15 billion financial institution, and later, when I wrote articles for companies and trade publications. My writing has appeared in Forbes, The Manufacturer, Stainless Steel Americas, NEXTPittsburgh, and other national and regional publications.
Facilitation: I was a corporate trainer for several years, a competitive Toastmaster, and a public speaker on the topic of domestic violence. I love the opportunity to package information and deliver it in an engaging learning environment, and that's exactly what Create-a-Buzz workshops do.
Our communication strategies equip companies and business professionals to increase client trust, collaboration, productivity, and sales. And that's what it means to turn communication into a business asset.
Yes! Create-a-Buzz (under the company name Your Selling Point) is certified by WBENC as woman-owned business enterprise and by the PA Department of General Services as a Small Diverse Business.
Our small-group workshops can be successfully conducted in-person and virtually. The decision is based on a number of factors: class size, geography, topic selection, and participant experience. Let's discuss what's best for you!
The multi-session Writing Skill Builder and private coaching sessions require a bit of homework. The small-group workshops include time for you to practice skills as you learn them!
The number of participants is limited to optimize peer interaction and skills application. We typically set a maximum of 20 participants, but some workshops are capped at 10 people or less.
Whether you have zero , five, or 25 years of writing experience, you will benefit from Create-a-Buzz writing classes. Learning is not a once-and-done event, and even the most experienced writers sometimes forget to apply "head knowledge" to business writing.
Writing can be an intimidating process, but with a reliable structure, a time-saving writing process, and tools to replicate success, you will be able to write better content in less time*, and with more confidence!
*Participants in the Writing Skill Builder have reduced their writing time by as much as 35%.
Participants have great things to say! See for yourself by checking out our testimonials page.
