I’m really excited about speaking at Social Fresh – Nashville on January 11. Jason Keath, the conference organizer, and I have been going back and forth for a while now about his ideas on spreading the good word about social media. He’s based in Charlotte and, after a very successful kick-off event there, plus a cruise I was bummed I couldn’t attend, is now taking the social media learning show on the road. I’m particularly excited about what Jason is doing because he’s bringing excellent social media programming for marketers to the Southeast, which gets overlooked by the population center-based folks who think the American South is full of Jed Clampetts.
Social Fresh is an idea born from taking the best parts of several different conferences and combining them into one, power-packed event for marketers, public relations professionals and brand managers. The idea is to give people practical advice, case studies and real-world examples and inspiration. Jason has a power-packed lineup coming to Nashville and I want to extend a personal invitation to you to come. The cost is very reasonable: A full day of kick-ass social media learning from big name brands and thinkers in the business for $275 (if you register by Dec. 18; $315 after). Here’s who you’ll get to see:
- Paula Berg of Southwest Airlines
- Bert Dumars of Rubbermaid
- Nick Ayres of Home Depot
- Lisa Hoffmann of Duke Energy
- Amber Naslund of Radian6
- Zena Weist of Embarq
- Arie Ball of Sodexo
- Matt Browne of Lending Tree
- Gavin Baker of Ruby Tuesday
- Geno Church of Brains on Fire
Some of the 13 panels and topics include:
- The ROI Of Community
- Social Media In The Music Industry
- Corporate Blogging Is Your Social Media Home Base
- B2B Innovation In Social Media
- Real Twitter Results
- Word of Mouth Marketing form the Bottom Up
- Moving The Needle: Social Media For Your Bottom Line
I’ll be presenting that last topic and would be honored to have to come. The night before, there will be a networking happy hour. I’ll be there and I want you to come and share in the opportunity to meet some of these decision makers and innovators in the social media marketing world. You’ll get a lot out of this event. Plus, we’ll get to hang. That’s cool.
You can register for the event using this link to the Social Fresh registration site. (Disclosure: As a speaker, I also get to serve as an affiliate of the conference and get a modest commission on any sales made from the link. If you’d prefer I do not receive a cut, use the link to register here.)
You can also learn more about the day’s events, speakers and more at the Social Fresh Nashville website. And, if you’re in the Tampa, Fla., area, the next Social Fresh is coming your way Feb. 8. (I won’t be attending that one … sniff.)
Come to Nashville. It’ll be fun and you’ll learn a lot. I’ll see you there!
