  • Thanks for including my Pinterest article, Adrian!  I have been so intrigued by it that I included a lesson on Pinterest in my “How to Market a Seminar with Social Media” online course.

    There are just so many possibilities to have fun with this!

Testimonial

If educators gave copies of [Mark Jeffries book “Creating the Perfect Event”] and Adrian Segar’s “Conferences that Work” to all of their students, the world of meetings and conferences would be a much better place.
