Creating high-performance contributors and teams
The age in which we live requires a constant supply of innovative ideas.
We look at other brands leading industries and markets and say we can’t innovate like they do. Their teams are more talented. They just have a knack for delivering incredible experiences. We make excuses: They sell products that are more interesting, they have bigger budgets, more resources, less bureaucracy or a culture that’s inherently open to new ideas.
Stop making excuses and invest in bringing out the best in each of your employees and teams. The following can be delivered as one-hour webinars, multi-day virtual workshops and everything in between. Carla will work with you to tailor the content to your specific situation, business needs and industry challenges.
Take your business to the next level with Carla’s expertise
“I was very impressed by Carla’s content marketing know-how and command of how to foster strong relationships between marketing and sales teams. Carla’s pulse on the cutting edge of PR and marcom is clearly why her clients and colleagues continue to seek her consultancy. Her affable demeanor is complemented by a business-savvy that is rare. If you’re looking to take your business to the next level (and increase sales), or simply want to learn from a very knowledgeable communications pro, then you can’t go wrong by listening to Carla’s expertise.”
Jay Manciocchi, NA Marketing, Lead Accenture
Dynamic, Engaging and Confident
“Carla is a dynamic and engaging speaker. I recently hired her to run a sale/marketing alignment workshop for me. This was a huge endeavor as we were unsure how committed our teams would be to having this conversation. Carla made me feel comfortable and confident in holding this workshop by walking me through every step beforehand. She provided insightful tactics for all, brought our workshop to life by stimulating participation and new ideas, and she followed up with our questions immediately. She has expansive knowledge on content marketing, and sales and marketing collaboration – not only what it is, but how the partnership can benefit the company when done well.”
Cassandra Sayers, Brand Manager, Schlumberger
Elevating conversations to accomplish bigger business objectives
“I had the pleasure of attending Carla’s workshop at Content Marketing World. Hers was the first I attended and it ended up being one of the best sessions I participated in. Carla taught us how to elevate the conversation. So often as marketers we͛re asked to create XYZ article, video, asset, etc., but by elevating the business conversation and asking questions like, What are you trying to accomplish? or ͞How will this help you meet your goals? you get at the root of the business problem you’re trying to solve for, ensuring you have created something of real value, not only for the individual that asked you to create the asset, but also for the organization as a whole. She quickly helped me identify opportunities to improve my communication and also followed up with materials for me to review. It was great to get the chance to meet Carla and I would welcome the opportunity to work with her in the future.”
Patrice P. Ayling, Inbound Marketing Manager, OnShift Software
Energizing and Relevant
“I am still energized and motivated from Carla’s presentation with the Cincinnati AMA yesterday! From start to finish the content and her delivery were so relevant and spot on. Presentations like Carla’s where you leave with real excitement and actionable to-do͛s that will provide immediate impact are so incredibly valuable.”
Amanda Frietsch, Emerge IT Solutions
Practical advice and straightforward attitude

I recently attended Carla’s seminar at the Denver Women’s Press Club and was blown away by her practical advice and straightforward attitude. I walked away from the session with takeaways that I could implement immediately in my own business. Whether you’re thinking of asking Carla to speak at your event or you’re considering attending her presentation—you won͛t be disappointed!
