Mick Say – Social Media Speaker
Social Media is playing a pivotal role in the evolution of the internet.
Social Media provides the platform which connects people in a way never previously possible with any other medium.
Social Media includes web-based and mobile technologies which are used to turn communication into interactive dialogue. These internet-based applications allow the easy creation and exchange of user-generated content.
A Motivational Speaker in Social Media
Mick Say is an Online Business Development Consultant at the Online Marketing Academy. Mick is an early Social Media adopter and Social Media Speaker with 19 years online marketing experience beginning in 1993 at the dawn of the internet when very few people were aware of its future potential.
My first engagement as a Social Media Speaker was on the 19th of November 2004 when I was the Chairperson and Key-Note speaker for a Marketing Week conference entitled “Captitalising on Current and Future Trends, To Experience Unrivaled Success in the Male Grooming and Fragrance Market.
Back in 2004 when I spoke about my vision for the future of marketing I had already been immersed in the online world for eleven years and my audience who were senior marketing executives for some of the worlds most glamorous fragrance and male grooming brands were all very professional, classically trained traditional marketing experts, and unfortunately my vision of a global community of consumers connecting and advocating brands fell on deaf ears, but I never gave up and continued to speak about what was later to become “Social Media”
Keynote Social Media Speaker
More recently, Wednesday 14th March 2012, I was very proud to be the Keynote Social Media Speaker for the National Safer Roads Partnership Conference in Manchester presenting to an impressive audience of road safety professionals, associated organisations and champions all dedicated to making our roads safer for all. I will write more on the subject of Road Safety and Social Media as the story unfolds.
My role as an Online Business Development Consultant leads me down the Social Media Speaking path almost on a weekly basis from events as wide ranging as as the Business Start up Show to smaller classroom teaching and even individual 1-to-1 training and mentoring.
Social Media in Business
Mostly, the Online Marketing Academy works with UK businesses large and small to develop general Social Media and Digital Marketing Strategies. Integrating social media architecture and engagement into the wider online business development strategy and marketing mix is essential.
Social Media Speaker – Client Testimonial
“Mick’s talk at our conference in Manchester this year was dynamic, engaging and gave an interesting and easy to digest account of how we can improve our presence in the new digital world. Feedback from conference attendees was extremely positive, with many having improved their knowledge of social and digital marketing dramatically in just a 40 minute period! We look forward to working with Mick and the Online Marketing Academy in the near future.”
