The winners are in! Below is the slate of presenters for Social Media Club Atlanta's first PechaKucha night on Wednesday, March 30. If you haven't reserved your space yet, there are still a (very few) RSVP spots available.
Listed below, in no particular order, are the topics and presenters. Each of them will have about six and a half minutes to wow the crowd with their presentations - 20 slides, 20 seconds each. Come on out to see how they do, learn a little, and network with metro Atlanta's social media scene. Our thanks to all who submitted their ideas.
Full disclosure first: I am not normally a fan of business books. Not because I don’t believe in their value (I buy tons of them), but rather because I don’t usually feel engaged enough with the content to get through them; or, after spending 40-50 hours a week immersed in the “business” of public relations, marketing and social media, I prefer the escapism provided by fiction, a great biography or historical novel.
