I am part of what I think is a pretty exciting event going on this week in my hometown of Syracuse.
The Syracuse Biz Buzz is the area’s first major social media conference. The keynot speaker is Dave Evans, author of “Social Media Marketing: An Hour a Day.” A slew of presentations are planned, including a session on blogging by yours truly.
The event kicks off 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday (May 26) with a Tweetup at the Syracuse Technology Garden. The sessions run 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday (May 27) at the Oncenter.
My friend and Every Patient’s Advocate blogger Trisha Torrey will be speaking about using social media to build your brand. Syracuse University professor Jill Hurst-Wahl, who has guest blogged on Save the Media, will talk about developing and maintaining your reputation using social media. (Read the full schedule.)
I’ll be speaking from 11:15 to 11:45 on Thursday. (Get ticket information here.)
The event is geared to business professionals, although the tips and suggestions are relevant to anyone who wants to learn more about social media and blogging.
If you can’t make it — or you’re from out of town — be sure to check this blog on Thursday afternoon. I’ll be posting my power point from my presentation.
