Please join us for our monthly luncheon event on April 30, 2014 as we welcome guest speaker, Sharon Geltner, certified business analyst for the Small Business Development Center at Palm Beach State College, where she also teaches Internet Marketing. Ms. Geltner has won awards for newspaper reporting, publicity, corporate communications, videography and online media campaigns. The New York Times quoted her on Google AdWords and her clients have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, MSNBC.com, Newsweek.com and Bank of America’s “Small Business” website. A client,”Estella’s Brilliant Bus,” was a Top 10 2013 CNN Hero.
Sharon will speak at the event about “All Things Scary on the Internet”. Her lecture will cover how you can prevent slander, robbery and identity theft.
The Society of Professional Journalists “favorited” –and Upworthy.com recommended–Geltner’s video, “The Fat Lady Has Not Sung: Why the Internet Needs the News,” about how search engines rely on daily newspapers and aired at Stanford University graduate classes. She presented on a similar topic at the international conference of the Public Relations Society of America in Washington, D.C. Her journalism appreciation campaign, “Net Needs News Day,” drew editorial cartoonists (including a 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner) to publish simultaneously on how new media needs old media. The prize-winning event was covered by James Fallows at The Atlantic, Editor & Publisher and featured at the U. S. Embassy in Vienna.
Geltner has also e-published Charity Bashed, a humorous mystery and satire about Palm Beach. She is the first digital author to speak before Palm Beach County library patrons. She has served on the boards of the Greater Boynton Beach Foundation and the South Florida Interactive Marketing Association. Last, Geltner is president of Froogle PR; an Internet marketing, online reputation management and SEO firm.
