What Others Are Saying

“This was truly the best conference/forum with the most current, pertinent and comprehensive amount of information on how to connect with our customers in meaningful ways, within today’s business landscape that I have ever been to.”
– Paula Chenchar Hanus, Director of Creative Services, OmniTel Communications

“The Social Brand Forum is unlike 99% of the events out there. Not only was the event full of quality content and great speakers, but there was a focus on making sure the audience got exactly what they needed that most events lack. The event ran on time and the staff was hands-down one the best I’ve ever seen.”
– John Michael Morgan, Author of Brand Against The Machine

“I loved Social Strategy Boot Camp! I took part in the Cedar Rapids event, and it was above and beyond any other social media training I’ve experienced.”
– Lori Arguello, Community Relations Coordinator, Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center

“Your Boot Camp was one of the best professional development experiences I’ve ever had.”
– Adrienne Lamberti, University of Northern Iowa

“I highly recommend attending Social Strategy Boot Camp! I went to the Davenport event and I learned so much! Nick and his team are EXPERTS in marketing and social media and make learning fun and understandable.”
- Julianna Kennedy, Research Coordinator, University of Iowa Health Care

“I spoke at the first Social Brand Forum in 2012, and was extremely impressed with the value that the event provided. Typically, a first-time event has a few hiccups and problems even under the best-case scenario. But Nick assembled an excellent lineup of experts and created an agenda that provided attendees with two days of value that was worth far more than the registration price. I was proud to be a part of the first Social Brand Forum as it will likely become a fixture in the Midwest in the years to come.”
– Mack Collier, Social Media Consultant/Author of Think Like a Rock Star

“The Social Brand Forum ROCKED.”
– Lynn Manternach, Ph.D., Brand Arsonist & President, MindFire Communications

“SocialBrand, pound for pound, was one of the most useful, informative and convivial events I’ve attended in quite a while, and without a doubt the most fun I’ve ever had in Iowa.”
– David B. Thomas, Senior Director, Content and Community, Salesforce Marketing Cloud
