Speaker Feature: Patricia Barnes

barnes_patriciaPatricia Barnes of Reno, NV is presenting in the Business/User track of the 2013 Reno-Tahoe WordCamp. Her session is titled Using WordPress to Sell Books and Influence People.

WordPress sells books! I developed a legal blog on workplace abuse and bullying about two years ago. The blog has allowed me to influence the national debate on the topic. I wrote an ebook, Surviving Bullies, Queen Bees & Psychopaths in the Workplace, last May. The book sells steadily as a result of the blog.

Patricia is a judge, licensed attorney and legal writer who is a recognized expert on workplace abuse and bullying. She was recently interviewed by Bloomberg Businessweek for a feature article on the topic.

Here is a shortened list of speaking engagements she has participated in the past:

  • Business Organization Classes at the University of Nevada, Reno
  • Radio show of Steven Hollingsworth, All in a Day’s Work
  • Television station, KRNV-TV in Reno, NV
  • Invited expert to speak about workplace abuse issues before the NV General Assembly’s Commerce and Labor Committee

A big welcome to Patricia!
