When he's not going up on a stage to talk, Dean Gemmell sits down and writes, communicating ideas and strategies for companies and individuals. He crafts all kinds of communications — traditional advertising, blog content, collateral, news releases — for a range of clients in categories including technology and consumer goods.  Thanks to spending more than 15 years as a copywriter and a creative director at agencies in New York City and the Midwest, he knows how to produce great work quickly, efficiently and without drama. He's also co-authored a best-selling book about fitness training for curling with a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and written a guide that helps curlers improve a specific aspect of their game. Finally, he managed to sit at his laptop long enough to get a novel done.
