Social media guru to bring expertise to Indy Super BLAST 2013

Colorado Springs, Colorado (December 21, 2012) - National Seminars Training today announced that they have entered into an agreement with the National Association of Blind Merchants, which will bring noted social media expert and teacher Ted Janusz to Indianapolis on May 22, 2013, for an afternoon of in-depth learning.

Nicky Gacos, President, National Association of Blind Merchants, said, "We always listen to the blind vendors and state agency staff when developing the agenda for Business Leadership and Superior Training BLAST. We heard from the Indiana vendors and we heard from a number of vendors following BLAST 2011 that they wanted to learn more about how they could use social media tools to enhance their businesses. I believe we have found the perfect trainer in Ted Janusz."

Ted Janusz earned his M.B.A. in marketing from the University of Pittsburg. He is a former volunteer for the Central Ohio Radio Reading Service. Janusz is also the author of the "Social Media Marketing Guide" and 10 different hour-long CDs on various social media topics. Because of his insights, Ted was invited to appear on Geraldo at Large on the Fox News Network.

Janusz has conducted over 500 full-day seminars in 49 of the 50 United States. He is also a runner who has covered over 35,000 miles (that's nearly 1.5 times around the earth). Through a nationwide American Idol-like search, Janusz was also selected to conduct "eBay University" for eBay at sites across the country.

"I'll be reaching out to a few blind entrepreneurs prior to the Conference in order gain their perspective and assess their needs. I am confident that the techniques we will use at the Conference will empower blind entrepreneurs to promote their businesses through social media and enjoy doing it," said Janusz.

The Business Leadership and Superior Training Conference has become the principal conference for blind vendors and state licensing agency management and staff over the past decade. Each year we have expanded curriculum, sought out the most dynamic speakers, added networking opportunities, team building exercises and top notch tours and entertainment.
