Once again, thank you for your column, "Working the Web" in Greetings etc. over the last year.

Occasionally someone comes along that makes me sit up and take notice…but not often. Having been a salon owner and wedding planner for 30 years, I am often frustrated at the lack of "stretch" I can find at conferences. And then I heard Brian Lawrence.
In short order, Brian captures the listener’s attention with his succinct presentation style. I was engaged in what he was sharing immediately. His understanding and scope of the wedding industry is unparalleled. It is apparent that he has “walked the walk” that all of us share.
His advice is easy to understand and in a humble way he encourages the professionals to raise their brand to the next level. And then he clearly tells you how to do so... step by step.
He holds nothing back for people who would pay more (which I find very stingy in other presenters.) He gives the audience his best game based on current market trends and facts.
Brian Lawrence has given me more nuts and bolts advice in a fewer speaking engagements than I have heard from a lifetime of presenters. He is worth every penny and will be an asset to your program. Your audience will thank you.

Brian Lawrence has been a customer and a business colleague of mine for some 20 years. He has served on the advisory board of The National Stationery Show and has led workshops which have been positively received. His knowledge and passion for the custom invitation business is considerable. He is generous, articulate and very down to earth. I would highly recommend Brian as an excellent source for sales and marketing counsel, as a trainer and/or speaker.

Thank you again for your fantastic presentation at the Northeast Regional Conference for Wedding Professionals. I have since spoken to several of our attendees who all spoke of how much applicable information they gained from your presentation for their businesses.
I have been in the wedding industry for many years and have known you to be a knowledgeable professional with a willingness to share information. From witnessing you on the stage, reading your books, reports, and now your blog you continue to be a great source of information and a superb marketer. Your latest venture with localtrafficbuilder.com will be a great extension of your knowledge for the newest person in the industry or the seasoned person seeking to "sharpen their marketing saw."
Thanks again, Brian, for all you do! I look forward to working with you in the future.
