Two women who are helping women share their voice are WSA team members, Kari Henley and Ann Marie Stuart. Kari (and the entire Gather Central Team) and Ann Marie are the force behind all of our Virtual Gatherings and will be steering our Inaugural Virtual Roundtable on Social Media Marketing this coming Monday, January 30, 2012 at 11:30am. (WSA Founding Members…be sure to check your email inbox for the invite and RSVP ASAP!)
Truthfully, we couldn’t deliver the kind of value-rich, cutting-edge, highly interactive calls that we do…without the time, energy and expertise of these two women. We are beyond blessed to have them play such an integral role in our WSA family.
