As the founder of SMARTY (www.smartypeople.com), a network for women in business, Amy is continually on the lookout for innovative products, services and experiences. She and her team produce over 60 events and workshops a year designed to give entrepreneurs and freelancers a hub for networking, education, connections and inspiring stories. Monthly she moderates panel discussions where entrepreneurial stars, inventors, designers and thought-leaders share their products, stories and journeys to audiences ranging from 50 to 300. Amy is also a frequent panelist on the women’s conference circuit, is an on-air consultant to Kimora Lee Simmons on the Style Network television show, “Life in the Fab Lane” and regular contributor to media publications as a brand and small business expert. She is the co-author of “Ladies Who Launch: Creativity and Entrepreneurship as a Lifestyle” (St. Martin’s Press 2008), and was the founding editor in chief of Ladies Who Launch. Amy’s background in copy writing and brand strategy continues to be how she keeps her finger on the pulse of consumer and lifestyle products. Lucky Magazine calls her a “Madison Avenue arbiter of style,” and she has been featured or quoted everywhere from CNN to the New York Times. From Tommy Hillfiger to Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren to luxury outposts like the Mandarin Oriental, Amy’s unique ability to translate the essence of a brand, person or image into a finely tuned language puts her among advertising’s go-to girls and an authority in small business expertise.
