"Jeff is a connector of people and ideas. He is a valuable resource when it comes to technology and social media.” Colleen Belcher Managing Editor, The Sacramento PressI have a passion for the convergence of relationship development and social technologies. I'm fortunate to have seen the value of web based applications in sales and marketing early in their history, I participated in some of the first web site, e-commerce and e-learning projects.
