The PACA 2013 Conference Committee is excited to announce that Colleen Wainwright, a.k.a. âthe communicatrix”, will set the stage for this year’s “Opportunity in Change” program. Known for her common sense approach to how to connect more effectively with the right people, her presentation will be full of a lively blend of solid theory and actionable information.
Colleen will focus on how to stand out in a big, crowded market….not by spending the most or yelling the loudest, her secret is to make your business irresistible; on your website, over the phone and on all social media. She’ll teach us how to use social media creatively and effectively.
