Seminars & Speaking Engagements

Nancy Marshall, The PR Maven™, speaking engagementAt the helm of NMC is Nancy Marshall, the agency’s founder and CEO. Nancy’s extensive knowledge of public relations and marketing, and her willingness to share that knowledge, have earned her the moniker The PR Maven®. Her engaging personality, enthusiasm, approachability, and contagious passion for branding and promotion have made her a highly sought after speaker and presenter.

As manager of the day-to-day operations at NMC for more than a decade, agency President Charlene Williams is an excellent presenter of tactics for building and enhancing public relations programs. With more than 15 years of experience in the tourism industry and working with the national travel media, she is also frequently asked to address travel and hospitality-related groups.

In fact, several members of the NMC team enjoy sharing their expertise with businesses and organizations, especially in the areas of social media and SEO. Their workshops present tips for selecting the appropriate social platforms and maximizing their use; each workshop is tailored to the specific type of business or organization attending.
