Talent Bureau is proud to work with so many experts in all things social media. Our social media speakers will answer all of your questions: what is digital strategy? What are the best practices in social media marketing? What is digital content distribution? What is influencer marketing? How can I better harness the marketing tools of Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook?


Our social media experts are eager to help others learn how to create a digital strategy and transform their social media content. Whether your audience is still learning the basics of social media or is more advanced and looking to reach the next level, our top social media speakers will turn your digital world upside down for the better.


One of the biggest changes brought about by our post-industrial revolution is the state of constant connection; we can watch the lives of people we’ve only met one time unfold over the course of years, following them through their travels to different nations, through their marriage and the birth of their children, all through the comfort of our own homes. Social media is an unprecedented change in our way of being; we interact now in snapshots, sent from our iPhones.


There’s a lot of consequences to this change, some good, some bad. Anyone who has used social media can appreciate how dramatic it’s positive influence can be. An ordinary user can employ these services to keep up with old friends, post updates about their own lives, track events of interest to them, join buy/sell groups and find people with similar interests to their own. Businesses, small or large, can gain even more from the services; designers gain followers by posting their works, small-scale merchants sell their goods on the platforms, bigger providers will advertise, creating viral campaigns to spark widespread interest in the products or services they provide. Social media can also be used for customer services, taking up complaints from the masses and providing service updates.


The dark side of social media can be quite pernicious, though. Political campaigns by foreign nations to influence votes, addiction to the platforms, unhappiness when what you post doesn’t get enough likes, and a profound sadness that your life doesn’t look as interesting as that of your peers. It can be hard to remember that, for the most part, people are only posting their very best selves online; that snapshots aren’t the whole picture. From YouTube to Facebook, Twitter to Snapchat, each social media company has its own specific advantages and disadvantages, its own market, its own rules to follow.


It’s incredibly important to properly manage your social media empire. One bad Tweet can haunt you for the rest of your business career; another feature of these platforms is their permanence. Navigating these waters can be tricky, but we have speakers who are grizzled captains on the social media seas. Take Andrew Au for example; a Forbes 30 under 30 wunderkind, his strategic management company INTERCEPT, focused on the changing trends in the marketing landscape and millenials. He’ll discuss how to reach out to millenials, the largest generation in the workforce, and digital marketing strategies. Ross Simmonds is a B2B expert who will help you cut through the noise of online marketing and be heard by those who matter most. Shane Gibson invites you to consider how the vast world of social media can allow you to uncover “Nanotribes” of local consumers and how to improve your social selling.


Our presenters are all experts in the world of social media; that’s true because they’ve made a name for themselves on the very platforms that you want to use better. Understanding the power of connection, and the responsibility that comes with it; you’ll unlock something great.
