Leapfrogging with Social Media

Posted by

I am thrilled to be a keynote speaker at the upcoming Desiging Profits Seminar in New York City this September. I have been attending the amazing seminars by David Shepherd for more than 6 years and I can honestly say that they have changed my life.

It was at my favorite of David’s events to date, a fantastic conference on Building your Celebrity Brand in 2007, where I first learned about blogging from my now friend Mark Cutler. Prior to that dynamic event in Atlanta, Georgia, I had never even heard of a blog. A few short months later in 2008 I started one of my own and the rest is history.

So if you are a designer and you want to leapfrog your competition and build your brand using social media tools like blogging, facebook and twitter, Don’t miss my talk. If you want to learn all you can about mastering the “Business of Design”, then don’t miss this conference!

David has put together one of the best conferences to date and he has moved it from it’s typical location in Las Vegas to the design capital of the country, New York City!! Two action packed days with speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions and you will come away inspired and ready to take your business to the next level.

Industry experts like the amazing group at The Editor at Large will help you get your work published. Guru on marketing to the affluent, Steve Nobel, will tell you how to thrive in the luxury market in this economy, and the brilliant social media experts at Design Sherpa will help you get your social media presence off the ground or taken to the next level.

My story is evidence that using social media and other business tools in the right way can put your design firm on the Map and David Shepherd is the man to connect you with these tools and techniques. Go to the Designing Profits website to learn more and register now! Space is limited. Be sure to type in the promotional code TOBI to get $100 off your registration. Hope to see you there.
