Here’s what people are saying…

Leslie was a presenter at the 2019 Association of Medical Illustrators annual conference in Milwaukee Wisconsin. She gave an excellent 60 minute presentation on marketing and social media and pointed out the fears that hold back many artists in self-promotion. She left the audience with a call to action on interacting with the audience through the power of original content.

As one of the event organizers I can say that Leslie is a true professional. She sought out several members prior to the event to learn about our industry in order to tailor her message to the needs of our members. I truly enjoyed working with Leslie and highly recommend her for both speaking engagements and personal coaching.

I have known Leslie for several years and have seen the results of her work as a marketing consultant, helping small businesses grow through the effective use of social media and other methods.

As a content marketing strategist, she understands the small business challenges of finding and keeping customers and the need to create and maintain relationships with these customers – new and old. Her ability to determine where small business owners need help with these endeavors and then to assist them in the development of strategies allowing them to achieve their goals faster through successful marketing is impressive.

I was in attendance at the 2019 Association of Medical Illustrators National Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Leslie gave an inspiring 60 minute presentation on marketing to an audience of over 400 professional medical illustrators, many of whom are self-employed.

She addressed a wide range of fears and concerns that are typically shared by many small business owners. These ranged from less discussed issues, such as perfectionism, self-doubt and the imposter syndrome to the more typical “how to find clients” question. She then provided a series of suggestions on how to successfully deal with all of these concerns: how to overcome fear, how to create unique content and how to generate business traffic.

Leslie’s talk was extremely well received. Leslie Horn Trosset is a true expert in helping entrepreneurs market and grow their small businesses and I recommend her highly as a marketing consultant or speaker at your event.

Leslie was a presenter for our “Emerging Issues in the Nonprofit Sector” seminar series. She was professional and thoughtful throughout the planning process and gave a thorough and engaging workshop on social media marketing to our audience of nonprofits. The user-friendly tools and tips she provided were valuable in driving home the message that we need to spend more time considering who our audience members are, and crafting compelling stories to engage them, and less time randomly posting and tweeting on every available channel.

Leslie delivered a LinkedIn training to our sales team that was as equally valuable to neophytes just cutting their teeth on social media as it was to those looking to expand existing skills. Well done.
