Social Media Boot-camp

All day how-to session on the use of social media platforms for networking and growing a business.

Many of you know of my success with using social media. My last book sold out its first printing in 6 weeks, I've had more requests for tours, training, and speaking engagements than I can handle and never personally solicited one ... until now. 

I attribute my success to "accidentally" using social media platforms to go "viral" with networking.  My new connections brought the opportunities to me.  My use of the social media platforms - specifically LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Blogging made differences I couldn't have imagined.  Now I'm busy ... but happy.

At my social media bootcamps I share my strategies for success using these four platforms.  I promise, everyone that attends will leave with a new, positive, confident outlook on how to use social media tools to grow a business, brand or organization.
