Public Appearances & Publicity
Paula Williams explains blogs during the Social Media Panel discussion at NBAA 2010 in Atlanta
“In November of 2009 I hired Paula as a business consultant for my aviation photography. She has a wealth of knowledge that I feel is unmatched in her field. I have seen my business grow into something that my thoughts couldn’t even conceive a year ago. The credibility that her work has given my business is wonderful and I couldn’t be happier. Once a month we get together over the phone and brainstorm about what we’ll do with the up coming months and see what kind of ideas and great things we can bring to the website and blog. I’m truly grateful for everything she has done for my business and her continuous hard work.”

“Paula has acted in the capacity as a manager and has twice provided a beginning-level business plan and writing for two start-up companies on which I was beginning Due Diligence, the most recent Global Writers Group or GWG. In a managment capacity, she is one of very few managers to whom I’ve reported over the last 12 years that can truly empower and lead on a daily basis.It seems she has attained a wonderful balance of wisdom and self-confidence. As to her skill and quality of writing, she has a powerful ability to combine imagination and technology to form a style that is in increasing demand as companies attempt to expand their domestic base to a more powerful and profitable global one. Would I retain Paula in the future for further writing projects? Absolutely, yes!”
