Writing, Speaking, Training

The Practical Prof® writes, speaks, trains… business!  The alter-ego of Dr. Santo D. Marabella, The Practical Prof emerged from his monthly business column in the Reading Eagle’s Business Weekly in April 2012.  Marabella, a real college prof, knows all too well the value of having a mentor and coach to guide your professional life.  He wants to share that with employees, volunteers and leaders in business and not-for-profit organizations everywhere.

This month I am happy to celebrate a five-year association with Reading Eagle Business Weekly!

In my monthly columns, I have the ability and freedom to share insights about important people-centered topics and challenges in the workplace. Writing for Business Weekly is a pleasure because of the encouraging and supportive working rapport created by Business Editor, Andy Andrews, his colleagues, and his predecessor, Dan Fink.

Thanks, and I look forward to the next 5 years!
