Beth Ziesenis is a technology expert who speaks to 60-plus groups a year about the best free and bargain apps and online resources that will help you Release Your Inner Nerd to become more organized, efficient and awesome at work and home.

Since her first Commodore 64 computer, Beth has made a verb out of the word “nerd,” and is almost as obsessed with gadgets and doodads as she is with cupcakes. Almost.

Although technically the only “award” Beth ever received was “Best French Fry-er” from McDonald’s Restaurant when she was 16, Beth has garnered a few recognitions as a speaker and author. She was named as one of the favorite speakers of 2013 by MeetingsNet magazine. She also made the list of favorite speakers by members of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives. Because her session received some of the highest ratings at the American Society of Association Executives Annual Conference, Beth was invited for an encore performance for the “Best of ASAE” track for the group’s exclusive Great Ideas conference.

Beth’s two books are full of bonus tech tips and tools that attendees love. Her second book, Release Your Inner Nerd, received accolades from Master Marketer Seth Godin, who said, “This is a book for people in a hurry to find the good stuff, to get smart about the tools they need to do their work.”

"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you, and what a great job you did at our meeting. Every single evaluation I received raved about your presentation. One of the questions on the evaluation is “What did you like best about the meeting”–you were their favorite, hands down. I hope we will be able to have you back again."
--American College of Emergency Physicians

"Beth was a workshop presenter at our annual conference in 2008. Her session was rated very highly and participants told me the information they got regarding easy free and low-cost tools for associations was very valuable. We have asked Beth to come back and speak on another topic in 2009 because of her energy, her enthusiasm and her knowledge of the association audience that she is speaking to. This gives her the added advantage of tailoring her presentation to meet their specific needs. She is easy to work with and delivers a high-quality presentation. Speaking as someone who books presenters, that is the best of both worlds."
--California Society of Association Executives
