Well, it's about time we introduce some of the incredible talent that will be headlining the 2016 iMEDIA Social Media Conference!
One thing we know about the iMEDIA conference is that year after year, our iMEDIA-ers come back as more sophisticated social media marketers than they were the year before. Because of that, we feel a ton of pressure to make sure we're bringing in speakers to help stretch your understanding of the social media landscape.
For the upcoming iMEDIA conference, we wanted to bring in someone who was full of energy and knew the industry inside and out. Who better to come in and educate our iMEDIA-ers than someone who has worked alongside internationally recognized brands (have any of you heard of the company called, Pepsi?) and someone who, unquestionably, knows their stuff.
