Presenting, Facilitating

Building bridges between people and ideas. Igniting new moments of understanding. Finding the simple side of complexity.

Aaron cut his professional teeth at Quark, Inc. where he presented and trained some of the world’s leading advertising and creative agencies on topics related to print and multimedia design and production workflow. Today Aaron presents as a keynote speaker, is an Affiliate Professor at The Metropolitan State University of Denver and previously at The University of Denver, sits on panels, and facilitates workshops on the topics of the social web, branding, the creative mind, and marketing and communication.

Leading in a Social World

dinoslideAT’s most popular presentation is Leading in a Social World; an unexpected look at social media through the lens of leadership and strategy instead of tools and tactics.

From the evals:

Great book recommendations, engaging and interesting…Great speaker.

Excellent, would have liked more.

So much information, so little time. Outstanding.

Love his speaking abilities….would love an entire 2/3 day workshop from him.
