Learn the Best Kept Secrets of YYC Social Media

Social Media Breakfast (SMBYYC) is easily one of Calgary’s best-kept networking secrets. But at the rate that it’s growing, it won’t remain that way. Young professionals of all backgrounds and industries will be in attendance at their 57th event coming up on October 31st

It doesn’t matter if you’re a startup entrepreneur, marketing executive looking to broaden their knowledge of social media, or simply want to learn what social media is – SMBYYC has something for everyone. 

For those of you who are well versed in the art of social media, perhaps the educational aspect may not be as appealing as the networking opportunities SMBYYC has to offer.

But don’t jump to conclusions yet. There’s still plenty of value to be gained.

Why You Should Go
No matter how much you know about SEO and SEM, some of the most useful social media related information comes as a result of following up with the familiar faces that show up at theses events.

If you want to take away some new tips and tricks on how to engage your followers and gain new ones, then it’s very worthwhile to schedule a coffee meeting. The amount of information you can take away from your peers can be pleasantly surprising.   

And if attend SMBYYC events on a regular basis, you’ll notice the serious draw of the event just by looking at the number of attendees. 

Flying solo? No problem.

SMBYYC is all about bringing together like-minded individuals and the organizers do a great job of creating an approachable atmosphere.

Who You’ll Hear From
The intent of the breakfast is to educate attendees with guest speakers from within the social media industry. During each session audiences will get to hear first-hand advice and personal experiences from local experts who are using social media to change the way we do business.

And if you have a specific question that you’ve been dying to ask someone, plan to stick around.

Typically a Q&A session takes place after the speakers have delivered their presentations. For those of you who aren’t in a rush to the office, there’s time to mingle afterwards.

When You Should Go
It takes place once a month, always on a Friday morning from 8:30am to 10:30am, is free to attend, and a generous sponsor provides a complimentary breakfast for each event.  

There’s no set venue for the next SMBYYC (taking place October 31st), but if you monitor their Twitter feed you’ll see more details popping up this week.
