AMA Houston Present: Share the Energy – Networking and Social Media Bootcamp

HOUSTON – Dave Evans, acclaimed speaker and author of Social Media Marketing, An Hour a Day, will lead a power breakfast panel discussion and workshops on March 6 on how business people can become social media mavens in just one hour. Those attending the program will receive a free copy of the author’s book.

“With Web 2.0 in the forefront and an economic landscape in flux,” explains Evans, “marketing is all about how to get your hands around the vital connections and networking-conversations that lead to conversion and opportunities fueled by social transparency.”

But how do business people get their hands around it ALL? What makes power-networkers tick? And, with time and resources tight, how can they join their ranks, both online and real-time, without making networking your full time job?

Evans said that the interactive workshop is designed to make business people more efficient and smarter networkers by:

* Learning how to manage networking for better marketing
* Discovering the philosophies that drive power networkers
* Becoming a social media maven

“We will dive into Effective Online and Live Networking Practices from some of the community’s most successful networkers,” says Evans, “and then follow with an interactive speed networking session to help people hone real-time networking skills.

The luncheon will be held at the Koch Industries Building, 20 East Greenway Plaza, Conference Rooms 1 and 2, on March 6 from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Register online for the entire day or a partial day at by Wednesday, March 4 at 5 p.m.
