Farquhar, who has experience rich in planning, marketing, writing

business clients with their business and marketing plans. Glenn
Boston, another DEC marketing manager with a wealth of knowledge he
is happy to share, discussed how he advises his clients in his
volunteer role as a SCORE (Advisors to America's Small Businesses)

their experience with us.
