Getting Rid of The Plaque in Your Wardrobe and Polishing It Up
Presented by Noelle Cellini

Plaque is not good. Frumpy is not good. Master Stylist and style expert,
Noelle Cellini, will discuss the most dated items in your wardrobe and how
to update your personal style. She will show good and bad examples for both
men and women and help you gain clarity when getting dressed in the morning!

Style expert, Noelle Cellini, started her consulting business in 2003
helping men and women take the stress out of shopping so they can face the
world with confidence and style. Noelle doesn't believe in brand names and
logos - that's fashion. Style is how you put something together. With that
in mind, she developed the first online school, The Style Academy, in
November 2013.

She has been featured in The New York Times, Crains Chicago Business, Real
Simple magazine and enjoys speaking to both corporate organizations and

Social Media Marketing for Dentists
In a changing economy, competition among Dentists for patients requires the latest technologies and best mediums for connecting to existing and potential new patients. Social Media is the Dentists’ best tool and with 75% of patients worldwide on Facebook it is imperative to understand this utility. Attendees will learn how to effectively use a Facebook page for their business and how to leverage subscribers of their page to attract new customers. Techniques for increasing subscriber base and best methods for engagement of existing subscribers will be presented and Dentists and staff members alike will leave the presentation ready to expand their social media presence into high gear or for those who haven’t yet started, a working knowledge of how to undertake this form of marketing.

Online Reputation Management
In a perfect world, the online perception of a Dental Practice would mirror the image presented and reputation of the brick and mortar practice. In reality, harmful reviews can be very damaging and prevent potential new patients from selecting an office for their care and in extreme cases can result in the loss of existing clients. Attendees will learn about different review sites and also techniques and best practices to present their office in the best light possible

Dr. Zuckerberg’s early adoption of technologies including digital radiography, CAD/CAM & creation of a paperless office caught the attention of Industry leaders who enlisted him to lecture, write articles and beta test new technologies. The advanced technology in the home helped launch his son, Mark's, the founder of Facebook, interest in computers.

With his wife of 35 years, Karen, a retired Psychiatrist, they also have 3 daughters, Randi, former Marketing Director at Facebook and now CEO of Zuckerberg Media, Donna, who recently received her Classics Ph.D at Princeton & Arielle, who is working for a tech startup in San Francisco as a Product Manager.
