Mari Smith: Social Media Speaking Engagements 2010 – Let’s Meet Up!

Mari Smith - Social Media Speaker & Trainer My favorite events on my calendar are giving social media talks to all sizes of audiences, across many industries and a variety of formats. Whether it’s an opening keynote on social media success in general, an in-depth Facebook and/or Twitter breakout session or a full day training.

My 2010 calendar is filling up nicely, and this year I’m intent on pacing myself a tad more, and also allow a bit of extra time in each city to a) sightsee and b) connect with Twitter peeps at local Tweetups. Yay!

My public calendar can be found here, which is always current. Meantime, I thought I’d put together this post with a smidge more detail of what I have booked for 2010 so far and I’ll update it as more events are added. and add some video content too!! [If you’d like to hire me to speak at your event, hop over here.]

    WOWEE Mari… You hung with Tava Smiley. I was so glued to the TV when Clean Sweep was on. I could NEVER figure out why they did not put those episodes on DVDs. Hint, hint, tell Tava! 😉 Maybe they’ll get on DVDs yet! I’d be first on-line to get them!

    BTW, Mari… will you ever be in NYC?

    Luv & Hugs,

    Your life has changed SO much since I did the interview with you on Your Million Dollar Life – it’s not just about the money Telesummit.
