What is an SMCamp Coach?
Imagine a tour guide, teacher, mentor, geek-speak translator and Social Media professional attuned to you 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 and can connect you with all the resources you need to get you better at using and leveraging Social Media.
THAT is a SMCamp Coach.
