Content & Events 

Speaking engagements, workshops, articles, and custom training.


I love helping busy association professionals implement simple, manageable changes that increase non-dues revenue from sponsors, exhibitors and advertisers. As an added bonus, staff often find they enjoy wearing their sales hat a bit more.

Topics for speaking engagements, articles, podcasts, and custom training cover all aspects of creating an optimal customer journey that builds brand champions for your organization, leading to more new customers, higher renewal rates, and increased revenue:

  • best practices for website navigation and marketing collateral
  • tactics for prospect outreach,¬†sales conversations, and proposals
  • guidelines for fulfillment processes¬†that deliver a great experience
  • tips for increasing customer renewals and expansions
  • insights for improved pipeline management and forecasting
  • recommendations for sales managers
  • and more!

If you're looking for an engaging content leader who provides practical, actionable guidance, let's chat!

“Carrie’s webinar for our chapter execs was incredibly informative and helpful. Her advice for improving sales conversations is accessible and makes it easy to avoid sounding canned or salesy.

What I love about Carrie is that she’s authentic and down-to-earth. Our attendees were nodding and smiling throughout the session."

“We were REALLY nervous about recording [TSAE's 'Better by Association' podcast] LIVE at New Ideas Annual Conference but Carrie was the PERFECT person to try this out with. We had SO much fun.

Who knew talking non-dues revenue could make you laugh so hard!?

“Carrie delivered an outstanding business development training session for our team. It was engaging and relatable, equipping us with actionable tactics we could readily implement.

Her extensive experience was evident in the valuable advice she shared. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to associations seeking effective business development training for their staff.‚ÄĚ
