Upcoming event

Agents of change marketing conferenceLast year I flew from Dallas to Portland, Maine to attend the 1 day Agents of Change Conference. Why did I travel so far for a one day conference? Lot’s of reasons: the speaker lineup was amazing, it was affordable, it was only one day and it would give me an opportunity to explore a part of the country I had never been to before.

It was one of the best conferences I attended last year. Why? It was in a great location and the content was great. Best of all, since it wasn’t super huge, it was easy to get some time with the speakers. Let me tell you, it was a HUGE treat to be a part of a conversation with Michael Stelzner and Chris Brogan discussing Email marketing strategies. WOW!

I am completely honored to have been asked by conference organizer Rich Brooks, to be a speaker at this year’s conference. If you can attend, please let me know, it would be great to meet you. If you can’t make the trip to Maine a virtual ticket is available. Rich has been kind enough to offer the Oh So Pinteresting community $25 off the already very affordable price with promo code Cynthia.
