Refresh: Social Media Conference


This week, I was invited on behalf of 2 Social to speak at Humber College‘s first Social Media Conference at their Lakeshore Campus.  Because two is better than one (not just because speaking in front of large audiences makes me lose sleep, sweat and pace till my knees give out…), Steve joined me for the lecture and we spoke about all things Social.  Think of it like… we were 2Social-izing… hehe.

We were honoured to be amongst such great speakers: Erin Richards of CBC, Stephanie Marshall of Rogers, Jamie Stein of ING Direct, Kate McKenna & James Saull of TSN, Ron Nurwisah of Huffington Post Canada, and Sonya Gill of YouzUs.  This great event was put on entirely by the post graduate students, and we were so impressed by its professional flow, and the amazing speakers/content at the conference!  I wish I had this when I was in school!

We gave the students a snapshot of our day to day at 2Social, and explained how our roles often go very beyond “social media”.  We are always diversifying our offerings to grow with and develop long term relationships with our amazing clients. From strategic planning, to e-commerce site development, to blogging, writing, copywriting, to creative event ideas… our days are always looking different, and we spend many late nights continuing to learn, grow and provide value.


School does not stop once you graduate. For me, everyday is about learning more, and growing both professionally and personally. I am always up for new and exciting opportunities, pushing the boundaries, thinking outside the box, trying new things and enjoying the road as we walk (run!) it.  Find what makes you happy, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Again, thank you to Humber College for having 2Social at your Refresh Social Media Conference, and feel free to tweet me any follow up questions at any time!
