Sandra Tozkepresident,IMC conferencesbio pending. • Jim Wood, CeMadviZers • I'm a navigator by nature. It's a passion for me that finds expression in things like sailboat racing and rock climbing…and navigating through the myriad channels of modern marketing. For me, it's all about strategy, tactics and execution. • Marketing effectively is a passion, too. Once I recognized the universal personal appeal of the internet, I immediately became immersed in its marketing strength. In all my years of practicing the art and science of marketing I have not encountered anything that compares to it. • Emarketing is where I've been professionally since march of 1999. In may of 2001 I established a strategic emarketing consulting practice called Advizers, www.advizers.Com. For the two years before that I served as international director of sales at StockHouse.Com, www.stockhouse.Com, where I dealt successfully with countless agencies and clients in a very competitive market. • Prior to my involvement with the internet, I experienced ten years of progressive growth in radio, TV, and direct mail advertising and marketing. My background also includes strategic business planning and business management. As a certified e-marketer and professional member of the e-marketing association, I am absolutely committed to leveraging my experience and knowledge to help companies get what they want.
