If you have ever been to a Marketing Roundtable event – you may have noticed there are a lot of very interesting and knowledgeable people at the event, but getting one-on-one time with people is a lot tougher in a crowd.  So we decided to offer several workshops where you can do exactly that – get that personal face time with someone that has expertise in a particular field. 

We will have a variety of topic experts to consult with – marketing strategy, SEO, blogging, and many more, so join us, learn something new, and have some fun as well. Bring your burning questions to a group that loves to talk about hot marketing topics.
