As I’ve been invited to present to more and more groups, the range of social media, blogging and branding topics, and audiences, has drastically grown. One of my most unique speaking engagements was for an elite group of Memphis high school juniors and seniors who are part of the Memphis PREP Program. A little more than 100 students were selected for this year’s program, which offers students incredible summer experiences, ACT/SAT prep classes, college counseling, personal growth workshops, leadership development opportunities, and tips on interviewing skills, time management and resume writing.

My workshop discussed tips for using social media in a beneficial way, what to avoid posting on social media, how social media activity can affect your scholarship, career and development opportunities (for good and bad), and the benefits of having a website or blog with your own personal domain.

Memphis PREP is an incredible program aimed at helping promising young Memphians. I was honored to be a part of it.
