Why Hire Beth Z

Engaging & Interactive Programs

All Beth Z's sessions include interaction, laughs and learning – even when she presents from afar! During her programs, you'll experience games and group exercises to facilitate networking and collaboration, leading to shared laughs and new connections, both online and in person.

Unique Content & PRACTICAL TIPS

Attendees walk out of the session with tools they can use right away. As the author of six books, Beth Z keeps up with the latest technology to educate and entertain attendees with the fast-changing world of technology.

Learning, Laughter... and FUN!

Your Nerdy Best Friend is not a traditional Zoom box speaker with online programs or "Sage on the Stage" in person. Beth engages attendees with special effects, conversations, funny (nerdy) pictures, social media updates and serious buzz creation.

Beth Z's presentations marry the funny with the functional along with a lot of audience participation built-in!
