Welcome to your life! There's no turning back. Today's generation is more connected than ever before. You are who you tell people you are. Every single image that is posted, every idea shared, every article linked, every person that is followed tells others exactly what they need to know about who you are personally and professionally. Today, you get to carefully curate your world. In this interactive session, we will discuss the role social media plays within the hospitality industry and in your own career. We will turn the magnifying glass around and look at our own social media accounts, discuss being our own voices and being our own ambassadors. Most importantly, we will discuss how to present ourselves as experts in our fields. How important is LinkedIn, Instagram Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other social media apps you should connect to, learn from, and occasionally "borrow" from the best and brightest in the industry. We will actually take out our phones as we discuss who we should follow and why. Prepare to pin, like, follow, and connect! If you're lucky...we may even swipe right.
