Martin County Digital Strategy Seminar 2012

Internet Marketing

We’d like to give a huge thanks to Proctor, Crook, Crowder, Fogel CPA’s, the Crary, Buchanan law firm and Morgan Stanley for sponsoring our Martin County Digital Strategy Seminar. We were truly humbled that the preeminent firms on the Treasure Coast invited us to conduct such an amazing event.

We speak at conferences and host seminars routinely, but this was the most engaged crowd we’ve ever had.

About 40 business leaders from all different industries along the Treasure Coast attended and more than 50% had at least one question.

We had an entire two hours planned out, and got through about 30 minutes of it because the conversation took over the seminar, which was better than we could have hoped for.

I’d rather have a seminar that is a two-hour QA Session than a two-hour speech, and that’s exactly what it was.

I can’t wait to do it again.
