SMCKnox Presents: An Evening with Ryan Sauers

According to Ryan Sauers a doctor is a salesman; so is a firefighter, a stay-at-home mom and an executive. This is the premise for his new book, “Everyone is in Sales.” However, it might challenge your traditional idea of sales. In his book, Ryan reframes the term “sales” to “communications.”

Interested in learning more? We thought you might be. That’s why SMC Knoxville has invited Ryan to speak at the Margarita Loft in Blue Coast Burrito on Tuesday, March 27 from 6-8pm!

A Social Slam 2011 alum, Ryan gets social media. If you want to hear from one of the industry’s top thought-leaders, don’t miss this this event! Not only is it free to attend, Blue Coast Burrito will offer a free self serve taco bar. So confirm your attendance today on our Facebook Event Page, and we’ll see you on March 27!

Event Recap: The Social Media Smackdown

Last night, SMC Knoxville hosted the long-awaited Social Media Smackdown, where our panelists debated the merits of their favorite social networks in an attempt to sway the audience to believe each panelist's network was the best.

Representing Twitter, we had Rick Laney, Vice President of Ackermann PR. Katie Granju, Social Media Manager of Scripps Networks spoke on behalf of Facebook. Nicole Denton, Digital Communications Specialist at Pyxl covered Pinterest, and Shane Rhyne, Digital Strategies Manager at Ackermann PR, represented Google+.

While the event itself was held last night at Calhoun's on the River (big thanks to Calhoun's for sponsoring!), the debate started long before via some social media smacktalk across Twitter, Facebook and Google+, which really helped attract a crowd for the main event.
