A New Approach To Internet Business Seminars
‘Repacking New Orleans Workshop’
New Orleans, LA – Among the 100+ events cancelled smack in the
middle of the $5 billion a year tourism industry* in New Orleans
due to Katrina is Content Desk’s Internet Publisher’s Mardi Gras.
This 3-day seminar / workshop event was scheduled from Sept.
9-11, 2005, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans.
“(The) Hyatt Regency New Orleans is not assessing any
cancellation fees with our travel partners and they have assured
us that all prepaid reservations will be refunded in full,” said
Constance Humphrey, site administrator for Content Desk and wife
of Jack Humphrey, managing partner in the exclusive Content Desk
Charter Members publishing group.
Although New Orleans, the seventh-largest convention
destination*, is right in the middle of their busy season,
facilities, associated hosting companies and airlines are working
with event planners and administrators as efficiently as
“I found out that the New Orleans airport will not have
commercial flights going in or out for at least another two
months,” explained Constance. “Some airlines might make you wait
until the DAY OF departure on your ticket to issue the refund,
but once the flight is officially cancelled, they will issue
refunds.” Having grown up in the New Orleans area, Constance flew
in as close as possible to help with the aftermath, not only for
her family and friends, but her families’ business associates.
Site cancellation aside, the Content Desk partners decided to
make lemonade out of lemons. They repackaged their event and are
offering it as a remote event, a new approach to Internet
business seminars using the latest in technology and Internet
“We still want to offer registered participants the opportunity
for a lucrative future with an online publishing business that
provides them with the income they’ve always wanted,” said Jack
Humphrey. “Despite devastating once-in-a-lifetime storms!”
The focus of the Internet Publisher’s workshop is, “How To Triple
Your Income With Irresistible New Content Publishing, Traffic
Building and Sales Conversion Techniques - The Three Proven Keys
To Internet Success." A percentage of all proceeds will be
donated to the disaster relief fund for the New Orleans regional
Red Cross office.

more. The exclusive online community focuses on four things;
community, learning, technology and profits.
The Content Desk membership community communicates via their
private forum, conferences, teleconferences, email, support desk
and the latest virtual and other technological tools that come
available like Skypeä (a free Internet telephony system)**. Some
of their tools are downloads, while others are online
applications and knowledge shared through learning. Learning is
offered in the form of videos, articles, help texts, tutorials,
member sharing and seminars/workshops.
Content Desk membership fees go right back into development of
new software and tools so that members are always on the

builders out there.
Cyber-brains behind the Content Desk scene are the “Power Trio;”
Jack Humphrey, Mark Braunstein, and Peter Lenkefi. These three
renowned visionaries found themselves smack dab in the middle of
the emerging, fledgling web publishing industry.
