I’ve been asked to speak at a variety of upcoming events – and while this may make for a stale post, this post is intended for many of my linkedin connections who have asked what seminars are coming up…

*free* February 25th, 2 – 5pm – “Harnessing the Power of Social Media” – although a better title would be ‘Using Social Media in your Job Search‘.

About once every 6-8 weeks, I teach newcomers to Canada and other people in job transition how to use social media for personal networking.  I help people build powerful linkedin profiles, understand what recruiters look for and how to protect privacy in an increasingly public social space.   I am delighted that I will be co-presenting with Emmanuel Lopez, a.k.a. the Motivator Man, who shows people how movies and social media can energize careers, business and life.

*free virtual* March 9th, 10am – Social Media Marketing Summit, BrightTALK.  “Engaging!  Bringing Social Media to a World Festival

The CNBPA assists Canadians in exploring their Dutch connections in the GTA by offering progressive events around learning and connecting in a professional and entrepreneurial business context.  This Fireside Chat is moderated by Darryl Konynenbelt, from the Global Toronto News Hour Team.  I will be joining three other e-marketers including Tedde van Gelderen, President, Akendi, Justin Stockman, Director of Marketing MuchMusic, MTV, MuchMore and Court Elliot, Communications Manager, Philips Canada.
