Last year I developed a workshop on media relations for start up companies, which has been well received. I am currently working on a presentation about Canadian folk art called “With These Hands”. When it’s completed I plan on offering it to service clubs and other gatherings in my community. I would pay good money and travel some distance to attend a workshop on “Early Canadian Outdoor Signs and Advertising”, to give you another example.
No one likes change. We all want the old ways to continue working. Sadly, it appears the old ways are failing and failing consistently. It’s time for change in the marketing of Canadian antiques and I know the many talented and innovative people within the industry can rise to the challenge.
