An Internet strategy pioneer, Philippa Gamse has been working with Internet applications since 1991. Long before most people had seen the potential power of online communication tools, Philippa was an "Internet evangelist" for a major national nonprofit organization, inspiring her colleagues to work together online, and building the expertise that led to her forming her own consulting and speaking practice in 1995.

As a consultant, she drills deep into the visitor experience of each site, and creates actionable and specific recommendations. Her clients report significant improvement in their levels of quality Web traffic, visitor engagement, customer loyalty and qualified sales leads within 30 days of implementing her suggestions.

As a speaker, Philippa excels in stripping away the "geek-speak" and delivering practical, easy to understand, immediately applicable advice. She customizes each program with examples relevant to the interests of her audience, often conducting impromptu live "clinics" for the websites of participants. Clients appreciate it - over 75% of her speaking engagements come from referrals and repeat business.

Philippa is a member of the Brains Trust for the “Small Business Advocate” radio show with Jim Blasingame. She is interviewed frequently, and presented a series of monthly segments for the National Speakers Association "Voices of Experience" audio magazine, 2006-2007. The ground-breaking "Seven Steps to Building Electronic Communities", which Philippa co-authored with Terry Grunwald in 1993 continues to be cited as a foundational text for the social networking movement.

Philippa was selected as the sole expert featured in the cover story on effective Web strategies for the UPS "Compass" Magazine Fall 2009 edition, distributed to over 1million businesses. Her book "42 Rules for a Winning Web Presence" will be published in June 2011.
