Keynote Speaker: Marc Smith, Social Media Influencer
Stand Out from The Crowd “Using the Power of Digital Media to Tell Your Story”
In 2005, Marc Smith jumped the shark and launched his own business producing events for corporations and charities. His business was on a nice growth trajectory and all things looked to be coming up roses…
Then the housing bubble burst in the US, Canada quickly followed and companies everywhere slashed budgets.
To save his business, the only option available was to market his services more aggressively, but Marc had no money.
Where did he turn? A little bird called Twitter kept tweeting at him and so he thought why not…
It’s been eight years since that fateful decision and in the time covered Marc was able to grow his business back up to pre-2008 levels and launch a travel blog that’s seen him travel all over North America in the past 4 years. The exposure and “celebrity” has landed Marc appearances on Breakfast TV, Global News, the CBC and many newspapers and radio stations across the country.
It all started with one little tweet, but that was just the beginning…
Thanks to this year’s sponsors!
