I’ve worked with Ellen Butler on several project with great success. "Jane Goodall Live" our nationwide 500 theatre Fathom broadcast. I then connected her to a program dealing with space by the mission director of the Pluto-bound spacecraft. I was introduced to her work as a brand/media/social web czar through her recognized successes in cycling and yoga. She was the marketing and technology director for the biggest yoga webinar, live touring instructor for a number of years, handling massive lists and selling events via her marketing and social media campaigns. Her expertise extends through content and social media using automation tools to launch campaigns for her clients. Most of her recommends are free or low cost but must be implemented cleverly with a well-designed strategy. She is a font of intel and has her finger firmly on the pulse of so-called new media. She's constantly looking at new examples for ideas. She is a fanatical worker, always digging and probing to increase efficiencies and utilize great aids. I like that! Such a challenge to have your eye on all that, the blizzard of new tech and still get anything done, so I'm glad she does!! She has rarely not landed something I've recommended her for -- well worth interviewing and a chat with Ellen for a coming project.
