“Cordelia provided the keynote at our annual library PR idea exchange for South Carolina public and academic librarians and was quite successful in captivating attendees! She spoke about how libraries can move from a promotion strategy to an engagement strategy and gave us all great ideas for taking our promotion to the next level. I even had a few library staff members ask me for her contact information days after the exchange.”
–  Dr. Curtis Rogers, Communications Director, SC State Library

“I can’t recommend Cordelia highly enough! She brings years of experience helping libraries communicate their services and develop community relationships. Her warm and friendly presence quickly wins over audiences and creates a welcoming environment. After seeing Cordelia deliver the keynote address at the 2018 Library Marketing and Communications Conference, I immediately wanted to share the wisdom and advice she offered.  I was fortunate to be able to bring in Cordelia to develop and lead an interactive training on communication practices that was approachable for attendees of all levels of experience. As one attendee said, ‘I feel empowered and have actionable steps to take to begin evaluating my library’s communications.'”
