Meet the Panel
Kathie Manchester from the Rhode Island Blood Center “I believe social media offers a positive way to talk with our donors without being intrusive. Having been in the industry long enough to see many forms of communications come and go, I am passionate about all forms of social media as a way to build long-term relationships.”
Dana Duellman & My Perfect Space Entrepreneur, consultant, Realtor “The key to having your business active in social media is to engage your fans: show them you love what you do, you are passionate about it, and rewarded everyday by your experiences. My goal with my business page – and the pages of the businesses I manage – is to put forth uplifting, pertinent information that really allows our clients to relate and benefit from our relationships.”
