Here’s what her readers (and editors) have to say:
“Mary Liz Curtin is a favorite among our readers, who love her humor and, more importantly, the great advice she doles out in our monthly Visual Impact column. She not only talks about what looks good, but also how the retailer can make it happen in their own business. The only thing better than a merchandising column authored by Mary Liz is getting her advice in person—our convention attendees soaked in her 90-minute, fast-paced program, which in essence took them on a retail tour around the country. Great inspiration and ideas they could bring back to their shops.”
-Kate Penn, Editor in Chief, Floral Management
“VP Publishing and Communications, Society of American Florists ??Mary Liz’s Penny Pinching Retailer monthly column in Giftware News is one of our most popular items. Her wit, insights, experience and charm make her a captivating, informative and intelligent writer and speaker.”
-John Saxtan, Editor in Chief, Giftware News magazine
“I look forward to Mary Lizs columns in GWN each month and find them right on, with great ideas and money-saving too. Of course the humor is right up my alley. Steve Killian, our Visual Merchandising Director, (who also has a lot of other clients), LOVED your column about the tool box. We used that at our hospital gift shop seminar.”
-Su Hilty, VP of Marketing, 225 Fifth Avenue
“She’s the columnist every editor dreams she could find: witty, but not too snarky, detailed but not too dense in jargon, deadline-focused but not too rigid to switch topics at the last minute and full of ideas. I’ve already told my staff at my new gig to consider her an expert worth calling.”
-Amanda Long, asst. mgng. editor, Washington Business Journal
“As the writer of the ‘Rep Rap’ column for Greetings etc. magazine, Mary Liz Curtin combines her in-depth industry knowledge, broad perspective of the marketplace, and unique wit and charm to produce articles that are reader favorites!”
-Kathy Krassner, editor-in-chief, greetings etc.
“I always turn to Mary Liz Curtin’s column first because I can’t wait to see what topic she has sagely tackled. She brings a bright, interesting, and often different perspective to the business.”
-Molly Miller-Davidson, PROpel / Los Angeles
