iMedia 2014 social media conference.

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to attend and emcee iMEDIA 2014 Social Media Conference!

I thought it was a great conference! My favourite part was Greg Hounslow/WestJet’s opening keynote. I could spend another three or four hours with Greg – even spend a day shadowing him – what he had to share was so interesting. Another huge takeaway was in the Social Media Panel when the Edmonton International Airport said they actually don’t have a dedicated social media person or strategy – and that they only JUST signed on for social media monitoring the other week. Crazy! Really interesting discussions and advice overall.

My recommendations for next year would be more snacks throughout the day OR a breakfast in the morning – as well as an ‘Advanced’ breakout session track. I thought all the topics were fantastic but some of them were more basic/beginner, so to have the same topics but from an Advanced perspective, would be more valuable.

I am very grateful that Hello Media Co/organizer Morgan Hrynyk asked me to be emcee. It was a great experience!

Below is a Storify recap of the day!
