Yesterday Chancellor University admissions and communications team members had an exciting opportunity to attend the Smart Business Midwest Social Media Summit in Cleveland.
Not only did almost a dozen of Chancellor’s team members attend, we also had the exciting opportunity to act as sponsors for the second year in a row! Additionally, Bob Daugherty, president of Chancellor University, reinforced CU’s commitment to social media by offering everyone in attendance a $200 discount on our 3-week certificate program during his introduction speech for the day’s keynote speaker.
Beyond Chancellor’s participation, the MWSMS was a unique event in a multitude of ways. Having the opportunity to discuss and learn about such new marketing concepts and get a glimpse into how so many innovators are utilizing them in different ways was inspiring. The invigorating panels, audience questions and live Twitter feed posting real-time updates from the crowd left very little room for anything like a dull moment.
What was truly the most exciting aspect of sponsoring such a unique, fun, and yes – very social – event, was having the opportunity to meet a broad spectrum of social media players. From beginners and casual users to social media mavericks, we rubbed elbows with them all while gaining even more insight into this budding industry. We look forward to coming back next year for more fun, learning and socializing.
