[SMN/SMA] Social Media: The New PR | December 1

Nov 25, 2011

We are pleased to introduce the SFU Student Marketing Association and the Social Media Network’s first collaborative event, “Social Media: The New PR”.


This event provides an opportunity to bring future student professionals and current social media experts together to discuss and share ideas. Our featured speakers have real experience in the field and will be able to talk to students about utilizing social media in public relations and marketing strategies.


We are proud to present Richard Loat, who was able to garner success and momentum for his charitable event, “Five Hole for Food”, through the effective use of social media. Our second speaker is none other than SFU’s own seasoned and professional PR directorDixon Tam, who will be more than eager to discuss the rise of Twitter as an optimal tool for networking and communication.


Through these charismatic speakers, students will learn about the types of social media trends and tools that will help them create and plan campaigns that stand out professionally.

The event will start at 5:30pm on Dec. 1st at room 3003 in the AQ up at SFU Burnaby. Juice boxes will be provided!

Tickets are $3 for SMA executives and SMN members. General admissions in $5. You can purchase your ticket via paypal on this link HERE. Get your tickets asap as seating will be limited! RSVP on the Facebook event HERE, please !
