(2) Marc Danziger

I’m Marc Danziger, a social-media and technology strategist for hire (and you should hire me). I’ve been thinking up, designing, and managing the development of technology projects for over 15 years with major projects in healthcare, media, automotive, retail, and politics.

Recently, I’ve done work for NBC Universal and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciencesmagazines, Warner MusicManpowerCentral DuPage Hospital, and Florida Hospitals, among others.

I focus on two areas: developing technology strategies – typically strategies for customer and stakeholder engagement; and organization to improve technology delivery. I’ve also done quite a bit of troubled project recovery, as well as straightforward project delivery management. I’m a strong advocate of agile methodologies, and am a certified ScrumMaster.

Charmed Particles, Inc. is my company (the name comes from my early fascination with physics), and it has been in operation for almost 20 years
