Keynote Speaker

“Success and Social Media”

Social media provides one of the best opportunities for career development professionals to connect with students. However, it can be a challenge to cut through the clutter and motivate students to take action. In this engaging, interactive session, social media and higher education expert Anthony Juliano will provide you with unique ideas designed to ensure that you stand out. You'll learn about what resonates with your audience--and what doesn't--and why it's so critical to find and amplify your unique voice. Ultimately, you'll learn how using social media to help your students reach their goals is the most certain path to reaching your goals.
