Social Media

Keynote Or Workshop (45mins ‚Äď 1.5hrs)

10 steps to Mastering Social Media Tools in less than 10 Minutes a Day.

  • How to have technology at your fingertips, so you become irresistible to clients
  • Where social media MUST fit into your marketing strategy (and if you didn‚Äôt have one, how social media is the only marketing strategy you‚Äôll need)
  • How you can utilise 3 free technology tools to engage with your client base in less than 10 minutes a day
  • The never fail way to build a list of brand advocates (followers)

In this session, Yvonne will UNPLUG social media. You will discover how you can STAND OUT amongst the conversations that are already going on in your area of expertise / industry.

You can buy attention (advertising). You can beg for attention from the media (PR). You can bug people one at a time to get attention (sales). Or you can earn attention (social media). David Meerman Scott, World Wide Rave and New Rules of PR and Marketing

Yvonne will illustrate how you can earn attention and STAND OUT by creating something relevant, interesting, valuable and useful and then giving it away. This leads to a network of advocates (followers) who will not only purchase your products and services, they will spread the word FOR YOU to their network of advocates.

Creative Thinking / Brainstorming

Yvonne believes everyone has unlimited ability to think creatively about everyday challenges, and she is on a mission to show people how to unleash those hidden talents.

She calls it a ‚Äėfriendly poke in the eye‚Äô.

Every conference or gathering aims to stimulate, educate and inspire new ways of thinking. So why not harness this energy by holding an ‚ÄúIdeas Summit‚ÄĚ at your¬†event? In this fun and practical think tank, Yvonne will facilitate a powerful idea-sparking process, using the participant‚Äôs actual business challenges to help them generate mountains of ideas. What follows is a practical system for evaluating the best ideas, then creating a one-page implementation process to ensure the ideas are swiftly brought to life back at the office. This is a great way to ensure that all the inspiration you have worked hard to create at your event is captured, also that the best ideas are discovered and acted upon.

Yvonne‚Äôs gets a room buzzing with ideas in just a few minutes and keeps the pace going throughout the session. Not only does she provide the format for ideas creation but also defines a system for capturing them and following through ‚Äď the key ingredient often ignored by others. This is real high value stuff and certainly can super charge the innovation of any company. Highly recommended! Malcolm Owens, CEO, Sampford IXL

We were impressed with the way you kept the energy levels in the team up throughout the day. We now have a toolkit to bring fresh approaches to problem solving and idea generation. Mark Quartermaine, Head of CRM, National Australia Bank

Your up-beat tutorials were entertaining and informative and we received a great deal of highly positive feedback from all participants. Robert Gibbs, Marketing & Strategy, Telstra

In 20 years of booking speakers for corporate clients I have had the opportunity to see thousands of presentations and have attended a few creativity workshops, yours was the best I have seen. You had the variety in the content and the pace just perfect to get some great ideas ‚Äúpopping‚ÄĚ for me. Thanks so much! Leanne Christie, Owner, Speakers Bureau
