Natural Awakenings publishers from around the nation attended a company conference in May at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort in Marco Island. Highlights included separate presentations by two prominent master life and business coaches, David Essel and Mary Lynn Ziemer, who also participated in discussions on how publishers can become more personally empowered in awakening and uplifting their communities.
In addition, special topics included expanding editorial exposure for a strong advertiser base, effectively managing reach and keeping operations efficient. Subsequent breakout sessions afforded the opportunity for franchisees to share progressive ideas.
The conference was followed by a three-day training program for new publishers taking over the production of three existing magazines. Natural Awakenings Publishing Corp. training staff worked with the new publishers of the Bucks and Montgomery counties, Pennsylvania; Hudson County, New Jersey; and South New Jersey editions at the corporate headquarters in Naples.
Launched by founder and CEO Sharon Bruckman with a single edition in Naples in 1994, Natural Awakenings has grown to become one of the largest free, local healthy lifestyle publications in the world, serving approximately 4 million readers in 95 cities across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
