On February 21, 2015 over 200 like-minded individuals gathered at the Diamond Ballroom in Vancouver, ready to tap into the full potential of using social media to promote their businesses. With a full day of speakers lined-up, and a wide variety of topics covered, there was information available to help everyone master their preferred platforms. We even discovered the value of some platforms that we may not otherwise have considered as candidates for becoming valuable business tools–like SnapChat!
Shortly after 9 am, Executive Director of Social Media Mastery, Ricky Shetty, took the stage to share his story, and the passion behind what he does–a desire to help build strong families and a sense of community.
Each speaker throughout the day was extremely knowledgable on the topic that they covered, and I found myself engaged and entertained. The day was paced nicely and – with short breaks for stretching between speakers – we were kept alert and comfortable. By the time the last speaker left the stage, I had a list of notes which I have since used to make simple (but meaningful) adjustments to my social media marketing strategies. You can have a look at the speakers and the topics covered here.
I would highly recommend this event and others like it, not only to gain valuable insight into mastering the use of social media–but also as a wonderful means to connect with other professionals in the Vancouver area over a common interest. A couple of breaks during the day allowed time for connecting with other attendees.
The energy in the Diamond Ballroom that day was palpable, and as we all filed out of the room at the end, there was an air of excitement to get online and implement our newly-gained knowledge.
Here’s a look at the highlights:
Ricky Shetty puts on many business building events in Vancouver, and the next will be a weekend-long Blog Mastery Conference towards the end of April.
