Beth Z: Author. Speaker. Nerd.

Since her first Motorola RAZR flip phone, Beth has made a verb out of the word “nerd.” She’s here to help you filter through thousands of apps, gadgets, widgets and doodads to find the perfect free and bargain technology tools for work and home. Although the only real trophy she ever won was for making perfect French fries at McDonald’s in high school, Beth Z has been featured on Best Speaker lists by several organizations who write best speaker lists. She has written a whole shelf of books on apps and has spoken to more than 100 thousand audience members just like you. And if you’re puzzling over why she goes by “Beth Z”… it’s because she only finds about three people a year who can pronounce her last name.*

Senior Education Coordinator at Iowa Bankers
Beth is Your Nerdy Best Friend! I saw Beth speak at an ASAE event years ago and knew we needed to bring her to Iowa to share her great ideas and information. Since then I have had Beth present at several live events and she has also done some amazing webinars. Beth is constantly researching new tech tools and apps to improve your productivity, security, as well as amazing promotional/marketing tools. Each presentation she does is customized to the group with great ideas she discovered as recently as yesterday. Beth shares not only all these apps and tools, but how to use them, as well as pros and cons of each. Her webinars are interactive and innovative. For someone who is researching the latest and greatest, she makes sure it is integral to her presentations. She is one of the most engaging speakers I have seen, who absolutely connects with her audience - be it live or virtual.
