What's Going On Here? :-D

Greetings! In case you weren't yet sure, I'm Michael Dortch. I've been in the information technology (IT) business since the 1970s. And if you have questions about how best to drive business benefits with IT, or how to tell better stories about your offerings, I have answers (and opinions, skills, and experience) that can help you to grow and improve your business!
         (read about it here.)          
What I Do:
I've spent more than 35 years (whew!) translating things "technology people" (and companies) say and do...things like:

Software as a Service (SaaS) / Cloud Computing
Collaboration Technologies
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Marketing Automation

Social Media/"Web 2.0" (and Beyond!)

into things businesspeople can understand, act upon and use to their advantage...things like:

For Companies that Sell IT: 
More Leads, Conversions and Customers
Better Customer / Partner / Prospect Care

For Companies that Use IT:
Faster, Broader Solution Adoption
More & Better IT-Business Cooperation
Happier, More Productive Users

For ANY Company:
Better, Faster Communications
More & Better Thought Leadership
Greater Competitive Agility & Responsiveness

Lower Costs
Higher & Faster Revenues & Profits!

How I Do It:
+ With Webinars, blogs, presentations, white papers, collateral, custom research,
consultation and coaching, in-person and/or remotely.
+ Professionally, and with passion, wit and humor. Collaboratively, independently, economically, effectively, on budget and on deadline!
+ With a complimentary, no-obligation initial consultation, via telephone, e-mail, Skype or in person (if you're local or paying travel expenses)!
