Social Media Camp Coaches – 2017

Imagine a tour guide, teacher, mentor, geek-speak translator and Social Media professional attuned to your industry or sector, all rolled into one. Imagine someone that listens to your goals, before you even get to the Camp, and then points out all the best sessions for you to attend, so you can target those goals. Imagine a person that you can connect with after a session, to help clarify things that you might not fully understand. Imagine someone that is connected to the best and the brightest in the Social Media world, who can connect you with all the resources you need to get better at using and leveraging Social Media.

THAT is an #SMCamp Coach.

The Social Media Camp team is thrilled to be offering this unique feature for its 6th year. This year we have professionals that cover Hospitality and Tourism, Entertainment and Media, Small Business and Non-Profit, Government and Community, C-Suite Executive, Business Level Web Development and Education.
