Keynote Title

Own the Ink: Marketing Your Practice Through Content


It’s tough to stand out in a sea of professionals. How do you convey what makes you different from those encamped literally down the hall?

Shorten your prospect meetings, reach out to the community, book better and more prominent speaking engagements with content–blogs, articles, white papers, and ultimately books.

Emily shows you how to articulate your philosophy, share your personal story, and find your voice to connect to your prospective clients and colleagues.
