Speaking to San Diego about Social Media
It’s with great pleasure to announce my upcoming speaking engagement with the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, ConVis for short. As a San Diego Native, the city never ceases to inspire my creativity, fuel my entrepreneurial spirit with great opportunities and provide me with endless options for enjoying everything San Diego has to offer from beaches, hiking, night life, dining, special events, etc. For this gig I’ll be combining my passion for San Diego and enthusiasm for Social Media, two of my favorite subjects! The opportunity to educate an organization that promotes and markets San Diego County as a vacation destination and convention site (which I constantly do on my own!) is a true honor.
I’ll be presenting 2 Social Media Workshops to ConVis members comprised of hotels, attractions, activities & tour companies, restaurants and other businesses that supply services to hotels/attractions/etc. at their E-Commerce Summit on December 1st, 2010. My first workshop will be customized for Social Media beginners who are just starting getting their feet wet in the space. My second workshop will be more high level, providing tips and insight on optimizing current social media strategies to those who are already active in the space.
In addition to the Social Media workshops I’ll be hosting, the other part of the conference is pairing hotels/attractions/tour companies with Online Travel Agencies – Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc – for one-on-one meetings to discuss business development opportunities. It will truly be a valuable event for attendees offering a variety of resources to grow their business.
In 2010, professional speaking has grown to be a significant part of my business. I attribute my success to my true passion and desire to educating and empowering others with Social Media knowledge. I will continue to build my platform for professional speaking for 2011 and beyond. In the meantime, if you’re interested in hiring me to speak at your event or to your organization I am more than happy to work with you in customizing an experience that’s unique for your audience.
