Social Media from Maui to Mars at MWEPsm

Erik Blair and I were invited to give a social media presentation to the members of the Maui Wedding and Event Professionals association today. It was held at the beautiful Hotel Wailea.


  1. We started here on Maui, and I gave a beyond the 30,000' view - we got far out and a little wacky to create a social media experience - not just talk about it without interaction! And yes, Mars did come up.

    Like most successful social media events, it took a village! Mahalo to these folks in particular who came early and stayed late to help produce this event:

    Jill Carl, Outgoing President of MWEPBilly Armour, Soundwave Maui for the audio techDan McMahon of Maui Island Video for the video techChef Rob of Food for the Soul for CateringErik Blair  of The Accidental Consultant - my colleague who got this party started!
  2. OK Check it out! I've listed the items oldest first so you can read down in chronological order, more or less.
  3. The board is honoring outgoing president Jill Carl.
  4. I must say it is so energizing to me, as a speaker, to have audience members sharing in real time on the tweet stream and in Facebook and Google+!
  5. Please join us Aug 22 for a four-hours hands-on workshop. We'll get your Twitter, Blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram  accounts all sorted out and polished up! Use that link immediately above!
