20 Jobs, 20 Lessons! – Building A Personal Brand in Social Media

About the Program

In this presentation, Bob Cargill will talk about his new book, 20 Jobs, 20 Lessons, a Long Strange Career in Marketing, from Junk Mail to Social Media, and how the emergence of social media about 20 years ago changed his career so dramatically. He will explain how any brand, individual or corporate, can take advantage of social media – Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, even TikTok – to get to the next level of success. If you have already jumped on the bandwagon, you’ll be inspired to do even more with social media. But if you are skeptical or critical of these online communication channels, he will convince you that by using social media, you can transform both your personal and professional lives for the better.
