When he’s not out preaching the good word of marketing and branding at work and on his blog www.DrewsMarketingMinute.com, Drew spends time with his family and pondering why the Dodgers can’t seem to get back to the World Series.

Drew has a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota but alas, he cannot remember their fight song.

Remember how you couldn’t stop talking about that new boyfriend or girlfriend? Imagine if your customers felt that same way about you!

Your Brand Is Not Your Logo
Stop letting the tail wag the dog! Your brand is not your logo or your tagline.

Welcome to the Age of Conversation
When you hear words like blog, Facebook, social media and online reputation, do your eyes glaze over?

Better wake up – this stuff isn’t for teenagers and it is going to change the way you communicate, whether you want it to or not.

There’s good and bad news when it comes to social media. The bad news is, the train is already leaving the station. Your customers and competitors are already there, using these new tools. The good news is that it’s not too late. You can quickly learn how to use these very cost effective, customer friendly tactics to your advantage.

Don’t let this new opportunity pass you by. Let Drew introduce you to the Age of Conversation.

"Drew is dynamic, informative, and somehow makes all that learning seem fun. He received the highest satisfaction scores of any speaker we’ve ever had at our national conference. As one participant wrote ‘we could use a whole day of Drew!’ We will definitely be inviting him back. Our members would revolt if we didn’t!”-Cyndi Menzel, Event Chair, National Education Association/PR Council

"What do you do when your speaker overwhelms your meeting attendees with strategic insights and practical tools? You invite him back! That’s what we did. Drew McLellan has been one of ISA’s ‘hip faculty’ at our Sales and Marketing in 2005 event and ISA’s Annual Business Retreat in 2008 – two different audiences (CEO’s for one and Sales Executives for the other) but a unanimous evaluation – engaging speaker, knowledgeable expert, and a down to earth person. Drew’s message is never canned and always relevant.” – Pamela J. Schmidt, Executive Director of ISA - The Association of Learning Providers

 "’Drew McLellan knocked it out of the ball park!’ Comments like that were what we consistently heard after Drew’s presentation to our network gathering of broadcast professionals this past February! It was obvious that Drew took time to think about our needs as an organization and to personalize his presentation accordingly.  Our hope is to have Drew for a ‘return engagement’ to continue the conversation!” – Dick Whitworth, Northwestern Radio Corporation
