Businesses and nonprofits seeking to develop their social media outreach capacities will find FMC’s Summer Social Media Boot Camp the perfect way to jump start their efforts. Highlighted by a morning keynote address by Edelman PR’s Steve Rubel, the event features six workshops, plenty of networking and a dress code of shorts and flip flops. It happens on July 19, 7.30 a.m. to 12 noon at Briarcliffe College, Bethpage, N.Y.
“Using Social Media to Promote Social Change” is not your typical marketing workshop. It zooms out to look at the larger impacts of employing social media for purposes beyond the scope of business. Forward-thinking panelists will share their expertise and advise attendees on how to fortify their social media sites with deeper meaning.
Experts presenting at this session include::
- Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds, Executive Director, Long Island Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Mallorie Rosenbluth, Vice President of Client Relations, Likeable Media
- Chris Tuttle, Principal Consultant, Tuttle Communications
The panel will be moderated by Jeffrey Morosoff, Assistant Professor of Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations at Hofstra University
The panelists will explore another aspect of social media’s utility: how it can be used to advocate for change and progress in large communities, inspiring collective responses and action with direction. Workshop-goers will have the opportunity to receive feedback from the panelists and network in a casual atmosphere.
Current sponsors for the event include WeiserMazars LLP, St. Joseph’s College, North Shore-LIJ Health System, Karma411.com, Hofstra University, Briarcliffe College, SMM Advertising and BigBuzz Marketing Group.
