Over a fast-paced hour, Jay provided relevant and current data and tips for marketing through masterful storytelling. He knows his topic well and delivers his message with an easy and self-effacing style. Audience members walked away smiling and armed with dozens of practical tips and tactics for improving their email marketing performance. It was ‘just what the doctor ordered’ for this healthcare marketing conference.
