More Than 100 Former Constant Contact Authorized Local Experts Join on First Day

Sharon, MA, June 1, 2017– The Local Expert Speakers Association (LESA) launched today. The organization is a professional speaker community that provides a voice for presenters that were accredited by the recently shuttered Constant Contact Authorized Local Expert (ALE) program. Already today, more than 100 former ALEs have joined LESA and received our full accreditation.

“We are very excited to have formed a new collaborative community of expert presenters. The Authorized Local Expert program at Constant Contact helped many of us, myself included, kick off our speaking careers. Now, by working together with this same group of local experts, we will continue to promote the best digital marketing solutions and proven strategies to empower small business,” said Bryan Caplan, acting president of LESA.

The formation of LESA will benefit small business and startups in a number of ways. By working to present via workshops and seminars, this collaborative of presenters will be on the front lines meeting one-on-one with budding and growing businesses. Each presenter accredited by LESA will provide small business insights in a range of digital marketing channels including social media, email marketing, marketing automation and website marketing (design, SEO and SEM). This hand-on approach creates a trusted advisor role for presenters that will help them bolster their brand while supporting small business growth.

“Speaking talent is rare. LESA members show this talent and experience with pride. We will work to support our local experts in finding venues and events to connect with an audience of growing small businesses,” continued Caplan.


The Local Expert Speakers Association is the go-to local expert organization for brands who need to educate small business end-users through workshops and presentations. The culmination of years of speaker excellence, LESA boasts a network of over 100 professional speakers spread throughout the United States and Canada.
