Promotion Agreement

I typically share interviews on my Facebook page, LinkedIn profile, and regular newsletter. Newsletters are sent on a very loose schedule so it may take weeks or months for me to share a certain interview, but I will do it eventually.

If my contribution is shared as a part of a round-up of multiple experts, I can’t promise any promotion on my side – it depends on the article/video content. If there are opinions shared that I don’t endorse, or the quality of the curated content is not up to my standards, I may not want to share it with my audience.
