You may best know Whitney Hoffman for her involvement in podcasting and digital media. Most notably Podcamp Philly and Podcamp Boston.
She have an undergraduate degree in developmental biology from the University of Pennsylvania and a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law, part of Penn State. Her education and my experience being the parent of two boys with learning disabilities has driven my interest in helping other parents and educators find the best tools available to help their children bridge the gap between failure and success in school.
She has presented on how to make you presentations more effective, and on why community building is vital to all of your new media/online project success and other digital media/social media topics. These have included presentations at Web2Open on the New FCC Guidelines- what they mean to you; the Social Media Plus conference on Social Media 101- Strategies for Your Business; and a variety of social media and business topics for AGS University, the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce, and the upcoming Delaware Governor’s Entrepreneurial Business Conference.
She regularly consults with large and small businesses about optimizing their web content and content creation, developing an online marketing strategy, reaching niche markets, and helping create compelling content while measuring return on investment.
Her podcast, The LD Podcast, features interviews with experts on learning disabilities and learning, along with conversations with parents, therapists and other experts in the field, talking about what matters most to them.
