SPECIAL EVENT: Official Book Launch
The new book by Trevor Young (aka The PR Warrior),

FEATURING A SPECIAL GUEST PANEL OF ‘MICRO MAVENS’:
microDOMINATION looks at the rise and rise of a new breed of creative entrepreneur, one who is leveraging the power of the Internet and social media technologies to build their personal brand and grow their business on a global scale. Trevor calls these entrepreneurs ‘micro mavens’, describing them as “content creating, community building machines”.
To celebrate the launch of microDOMINATION, Social Media Club Melbourne has assembled a panel of micro mavens, all of who are profiled or mentioned in Trevor’s book. The panelists will speak on the main themes discussed in microDOMINATION – how to leverage social media and content marketing to develop your platform, build your brand and grow a personality-based business that fits with your lifestyle.
