My Day Job

When I’m not talking sports, music, politics or idiocy, I talk marketing and public relations. Keeps the lights on and the dogs fed.

Most recently I spoke before a group sponsored by the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce, a group called Maverick Marketing Mondays, on the topic of social media.

Video and audio quality be damned, here are snippets of that presentation—a Social Media 101 for beginners who expressed the sentiment that “Help! These Marketing Trends Are Making Me Feel Old!” …as the conference was billed.

Social Media Making You Feel Old?

Is technology moving so fast that you can barely keep up? Do all the latest doo-dads and their ubiquitous proliferation make you feel old? I wouldn’t blame you if they did. Things change everyday. New services and Web sites pop every day. Half of them, you can’t even pronounce.

To wit, I will be speaking at an upcoming Marketing Maverick Monday session sponsored by the Detroit Regional Chamber on May 11. Details can be found here. The session is aptly entitled, “Help! These New Marketing Trends Are Making Me Feel Old!”

If you’re feeling old, don’t despair. I’m hoping this talk will have us all sipping from the Fountain of Youth, if only for an hour.
