In my position, I often have the privilege of attending conferences geared toward my profession. Lucky for me – I work in the world of social marketing, and my employer is sending me to a conference called “Social Mix 2012”.
Click here to see a quick video about the conference.
There’s many reasons why going to industry events is (and continues to be) important. No matter how many articles you read in a day, and how many blogs you follow – there’s immeasurable value in networking. I always find it’s great to get perspective on your industry from the true experts and pioneers, and that’s exactly what I plan to do at Social Mix 2012!
The Social Mix speakers I’m most looking forward to are:
- Amber Mac is an internationally known speaker, bestselling social media author, TV host, and entrepreneur. She’s been called “…a leading voice of the Web generation” and “a virtual Swiss Army Knife of networking” and is a highly regarded thought leader in the social media field.
- Gary Vaynerchuk is a 36 year old New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling author, wine entrepreneur, and social media expert. Gary launched Winelibrary.com in 1997, helping to grow his family’s wine business from $3 million to $45 million by 2005. He continued to break ground in the often haughty wine world, creating Wine Library TV in 2006, and gaining 100,000 viewers a day with his irreverent humour and everyman wine reviews.
and Gini Dietrich
- Gini Dietrich is the founder and CEO of Arment Dietrich, a Chicago-based integrated marketing communication firm. She also is the founder of the professional development site for PR and marketing pros, Spin Sucks Pro, and co-author of Marketing In the Round.

The topics being covered over the course of the day at the Royal York are vast, and promise to be informative! From blogging, business, sales and social – there’s plenty to be learned, and so much to expand on. With the digital landscape constantly changing – it’s always great to gather together with like-minded people, and share our industry knowledge.
