Public Speaking Super Powers Podcast, Episode 60: Shel Horowitz

Episode 60 Shel Horowitz

This episode of the Public Speaking Super Powers Podcast features Carma’s interview with Shel Horowitz. Shel was just a teenager when he started doing publicity and marketing for grassroots community organizations with zero promotional budget. There wasn’t even money available for stamps, so he used to hand deliver press releases on a three-speed bicycle. Now, for more than 20 years, he has helped businesses, nonprofits, and community groups get their message out to the public with little or no expenditure. He is the co-author of Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green with J. Conrad Levinson and has been an environmental and social justice activist since 1972.
