I make many appearances for private companies, but also appear at some public conferences when time permits. You can check out my previous speaking engagements (the public ones), but don’t miss my upcoming public events:
- Online course at UC Irvine Extension
This is a 5-week course co-taught by Mike Moran and Rob Petersen. Social media is part of the marketing mix for many organizations today and provides them with unprecedented opportunities to engage stakeholders and consumers in direct ways. The unique nature of this medium and the disparate nature of the technologies requires a specific measurement and evaluation plan. This course will provide students with an in-depth and hands-on exploration of current trends and tools including quantitative and qualitative measurement methodologies.
- Online course at UC Irvine Extension
I'm co-teaching an online course with Rob Petersen to help students understand how to use the Internet and social media to create audience profiles. Through qualitative research methods and monitoring social media demographics, students will learn to identify the social media applications and strategies best-suited to reach specific targets. The course will address the techniques and best practices for identifying and engaging your audience to ensure the effectiveness of resources spent on social media, public relations, branding and marketing efforts.
- Online course at Rutgers University
I am teaching the social media listening module of the Rutgers CMD Virtual Mini-MBA™: Social Media Marketing program. Social media is no longer a buzzword; it is how business is conducted today. As the number of social platforms increases, there is a greater need to establish an internal and external business strategy, policy and culture to keep pace and build a competitive advantage. Given the expansive selection of social platforms—from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn to Instagram, Pinterest, Foursquare, and Blogs—firms and individuals are struggling to make sense of it all.
This nine-module certificate program, taught by a team of top industry experts, will connect business objectives with social media strategy, platforms and tactics. Through case studies, interactive sessions, and class exercises, participants will learn about the latest research and best practices in the industry. Topics to be covered include constructing a strategy, leveraging listening channels, crises and landmines, content development, measurement and ROI, social media platforms, mobile opportunities, engaging influencers and change management. All participants receive their own Apple iPad, with the pre-loaded program materials, and we’ll use a proprietary mobile application to deliver the course content. This program runs as a 12-week self-paced online course.
