Social Selling Founding Father Koka Sexton is in Phoenix for a LinkedIn Event at ASU [UPDATED MEETUP LOCATION]
Hey Phoenix social media peeps!
Hope things are going well for you all and you're able to enjoy this Valley weather as it cools off a bit. Funny thing...as the temps start to dip here (relatively speaking), more visitors tend to show up in the area and its easier to persuade people that Phoenix is THE place to be...am I right?
So I fully expect more of these types of visits, tweetups, meetups, etc. involving some of the leading people in the industry nationally, as well as people who may not be as well known as some others but offer AMAZING insight and value. We also plan to have at least one of these locally on a monthly basis for anyone interested in coming out to join in the fun :)
With that said, this week we are pretty lucky to welcome Koka Sexton of LinkedIn to the Valley of the Sun. He's in town specifically for an event at ASU called #RockMyProfile. All the event details for that can be found on the Eventbrite site here, and I highly encourage anyone and everyone to attend if at all possible. Its FREE, and open to all (not just ASU students or alumni).
LinkedIn’s #RockMyProfile event will give you the opportunity to:
- Have your photo taken at a complementary professional head-shot station
- Receive 1:1 profile makeover advice from LinkedIn staff and experts
- Make an impression at a "speed-recruiting" station with recruiters from local companies who are actually looking to hire
- Learn from a panel of recent ASU alums and local recruiters sharing how they found success in their current fields
Register here for the #RockMyProfile event at ASU on Wednesday, Oct 21st from 6-9pm.
AFTER that event is over around 9pm, we will be meeting up at Loco Patron on Mill Ave to hang out and network, with Koka as our special guest. We really can't thank him enough for agreeing to spend some of his short time in the area with those of us in Social Media Club Phoenix.
Find more details here for the #SMCPhx Meetup w/Koka Sexton at District American Kitchen & Wine Bar, located in the Sheraton Downtown.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
This past Saturday, members of Social Media Club Phoenix were invited to take part in a pre-opening party for the latest Corner Bakery location that's opening on Mill Ave. in Tempe, right in the heart of Arizona State University's campus.
(Check out all the details about the location here)
We all ate for free as this was part of their training process. We were treated to some VERY tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner delights, and of COURSE desserts happened!
Probably the best part though was the customer service, as the owners and servers were all extremely cheery and constantly making sure that we had anything we needed. They even took a minute out to Periscope with us!
Huge thanks go out to Corner Bakery for allowing us to be a part of such a fun day and, from the looks of it all, the start of a great new location that ASU students and local residents are sure to enjoy!
