Tag-teaming with Clemens Rettich – Business Coach, Social Media Specialist, and the greatest fan a girl could have!
Clemens graciously gave his time to support the Vancouver Island Stagers, Stylists & ReDesigners Group last night, sharing his expertise in social media networking and its impact in today’s world of business.
This is our group’s official organizer, Michaela Starling. Michaela is a fantastic facilitator and certainly made this evening a smooth event. In the background is Valerie Westra, the group’s assistant organizer – does the pen and clipboard give her away? Thank you Michaela and Valerie for your efforts in making evenings like this one come together for the rest of us.
Jan Laurie is a colleague and fellow CRDA member (Canadian ReDesigners Association). I have had the pleasure of taking in a nation-wide conference with Jan, and assisting her with a recent redesign project – thank you Jan!
Clemens said that social media is NOT advertising. He feels pretty strongly about this – what do you think? Did he make his point???
And just to get our attention… in case we weren’t listening!
We’re listening! Do you think he knew his audience? Seriously though, Clemens was actually explaining three different platforms to build your brand on: (1) innovative products and services (2) personal or corporate story (3) mastery and thought leadership… and he used this latest hot product, SAXX, as an example of an ‘innovative product’ platform in which to build a brand on.
He did give us a moment… before going into the ‘innovative product’ explanation!
And we did get back to business…
Thank you Clemens for spending this evening with us.
And thank you Donna Morrison for sharing your fabulous Design District Studio space with us.
