We are delighted to have Lori Thomas Ross as a speaker at this year’s Garden Bloggers Conference. Lorrie Thomas Ross (aka The Marketing Therapist®), is a marketing expert, educator and author. She is the CEO of Web Marketing Therapy, Inc., a digital marketing agency and training company that gets organizations on the right path to success. Her expertise empowers organizations to create scalable web solutions that brand, build and boost business. She speaks nationally on a number of marketing-related subjects. Lorrie teaches custom courses for corporations as well as workshops through UC Berkeley Extension. Her book, The McGraw-Hill 36-Hour Course to Online Marketing is a common companion to professionals looking for online marketing management expertise, support and guidance.
Ross’ marketing and education background have turned her into a “markEDing” evangelist (that’s not a typo, it’s a mashup: Marketing + Education = markeding®). She is staging a peaceful revolution on the way that people and companies think about and approach marketing. Approaching marketing in an ethical way with a pure, educational purpose helps people better understand why to support an organization’s products and services, takes the stress out of marketing and gets more “good” organizations over their fear of marketing so they get in the game.
Lorrie Thomas Ross holds a Master’s degree in Organizational Management from Antioch University. She has been featured in the media as a marketing expert by publications including INC, Forbes, SUCCESS Magazine, the Associated Press, eCommerce Times, Entrepreneur and FOX News.
