I founded Guise Marketing & PR in 1995 with the express purpose of working with small business owners, professionals and non-profits to develop targeted marketing strategies, develop their personal branding, create effective, money-saving marketing campaigns, and achieve mastery at getting known and being visible.
And in recent years, as I looked around and saw how few women were taking part in the key idea-influencing areas of our lives, I expanded my services to shepherd successful women to become influencers and leading thinkers — thought leaders — in their field of expertise.
I started out as a professional video producer/director in 1980, designing and creating corporate identity and instructional video programs for big companies.
In 1991, I branched out to designing and implementing marketing and PR campaigns for small businesses.
As a speaker, I demystify marketing and make it doable. My presentations are jam-packed with stories that make perfect sense to small business owners and burst with ready-to-use ideas.
I came to the marketing side of business through developing and promoting what became a best–selling strength and conditioning fitness video, “Keys To Weight Training.” After the video won 5 awards and got such rave reviews as, “One of the Top 15 Classic Exercise Videos” by Shape and Men’s Fitness magazines, I felt compelled to use this talent to help other small business owners promote their services and products.
