Want to work together or request that we look into a data cut?


If you’re looking to contact me, please use the form below. I travel a great deal and I will do my best to respond within a timely manner. I’m not going to pretend that I get the volume of messages of even a D-list celebrity (Ha!), but I get enough that it takes me several hours each week to get through it. I do not currently use the aid of an assistant in managing these messages, as it’s important to me to connect with readers individually. Thank you for your patience!


Speaking or workshop interest

I enjoy participating in strategic conversations, presenting keynotes, leading workshops, conducting class lectures, and working with great organizations as my schedule may allow! Please fill out the form below and I will say hello and reply with my Speaking Information Form as an email attachment. The Speaking Information Form includes general information about my fees, and is incredibly helpful as a means of introducing me to your organization.


Media inquiries

I try to reply to these messages as quickly as I am able, as I understand that there is often a time crunch. If our schedules to align, I’m usually happy to talk data and industry trends, and provide helpful information. That said, I do not share data regarding individual organizations without appropriate permissions – even if I’ve made it clear on this website that IMPACTS is tracking metrics regarding a specific organization.


KYOB topic requests

The best ideas for data queries for the National Awareness, Attitudes, and Usage Study come from cultural executives and other Know Your Own Bone readers. You guys are in it – working hard to understand audiences so that you may most effectively educate and inspire the masses. I cannot promise that I’ll be able to get to the bottom of every question, but I can promise that I’ll dig in and see what helpful information I might obtain permission to share. I’m always looking for new ideas for data queries or topic analysis – and I’m appreciative to those who reach out to share idea about what national trend information might be most helpful.

What’s the decision-making timeframe for potential visitors to cultural organizations? (Here’s the answer.) Are tax deductions a major driver of membership purchases? (Check out the data). Are cultural entities doing any better at reaching new audiences? (Here’s the math.) These are just a few articles that would not exist if leaders hadn’t reached out to me on this site and asked me to look into it.

As a note: I’m not able to publish data regarding regions or specific organizations on KYOB. However, I am thrilled to share data and trends for regions, demographics, or specific organization types in keynotes, trend workshops, or boot camps!


Promoting a product or service? No thanks. I don’t advertise on this site. I also don’t accept guest posts from entities looking to promote their products or services. I get a great deal of these inquiries, but they don’t align with what I do or why I do it. Please do not contact me for these purposes.


Lo and behold: The mighty contact form
