Simply put……. With the dawn of each new day comes the opportunity to communicate purposefully. With technology and information driving the pace of today’s world, the human spirit and purposeful communication is more important than ever to leverage investments in marketing and technology. Although we have more ways to communicate, our communication seems worse than ever. Although we have more ways to connect, we seem more disconnected than ever. Balancing people with technology and high tech with high touch we maximize growth, productivity, quality and profit, and contribute to connecting and developing more meaningful relationships, personally and professionally.

"You can tell from the accolades and the awards that Lee has become an accomplished facilitator and educator, and she now helps many businesses in Maine and beyond maximize the potential of their human resources."Laurie Bouchard, LBouchard & Associates, LLC.
From living in a lighthouse on the Maine coast to a log cabin in the Maine woods, professional speaker and award-winning author, Lee Ann Szelog transforms her dreams into reality, embraces the simple pleasures of life and helps others pursue their goals with purposeful communication. At the age of 7 Lee had her first serendipity, although she didn't realize it at the time; she was extremely shy and decided she wanted to overcome her fear of communicating. Since then she challenged herself every day to speak up, write and conduct presentations and overcome her fears. Her persistence paid off; after enjoying a successful 28-year career as a marketing and training executive, Lee founded Simply Put, specializing in presentations to help people communicate more effectively and live life rather than react to it. She works with companies and organizations of all sizes, focusing on developing and engaging employees to achieve their maximum capacity, personally and professionally. Although she works with many different audience demographics, she has a particular fondness for the mature market and delights in the joy that comes from delivering the presentations she has developed especially for them about legacies and wisdom. She credits her affection and high regard for the senior market to the positive influence her grandmother had on her throughout her life. Lee realizes how much seniors can enrich our lives and appreciates the opportunity to work with and learn from them, and be inspired by them. Lee views our elderly population as a gift of wisdom from which we can all benefit.
Striving to achieve her maximum capacity, Lee also works with her husband, Tom, using their words and his professional photographs to inspire people. From living in a lighthouse on the coast of Maine to a log cabin in the Maine woods they have documented life, human and wild, in two quintessential Maine homes. The result is the publication of two award-winning books by Down East Books titled, Our Point of View-Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse, featuring Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine, and By a Maine River – A Year of Looking Closely, which explores the natural beauty found in their own backyard. Their current and most ambitious project is the Maine Woods National Park Photo-Documentation Project, which provides inspiration, education, and motivation, through photographs and words, to encourage society to work together in the spirit of cooperation to create the Maine Woods National Park for the benefit of nature, wildlife, our planet and all mankind.
