My mission is to help empower businesses, non profits and professionals use the tools of social networking to connect, reach new goals, empower employees and understand how to use social for business as part of their strategy.
I do this by reaching out into the community, speaking at, participating in and organizing events and through this blog.
Mila is a true trail blazer and visionary who has paved the way for practitioners of the insurance and other regulated industries to use social media for their outreach efforts. She is an accomplished woman who charms everyone she meets with her grace and competence. I had the pleasure of hosting a series of two interviews with Mila on using social media in regulated industries and creating social media policy.
I’ve had the opportunity to interact with Mila at the 140 Conference in Montreal. I’ve also seen her work firsthand as a blogger, community manager, and social media strategist. Mila demonstrates an astute understanding of our media and these new ways of marketing in ways too few in our industry really possess. Her optimism and positive outlook give all of her endeavors an added energy which I envy. I wholeheartedly recommend Mila.
There are thousands of "social media experts" running around telling you how to #hashtag your posts, or get your SEO up, or take advantage of the hottest new technology. The difference with Mila is she actually understands how to keep the social in social media, and tell a human story that helps you relate to a real person, not some "social network strategy" dreamed up by a decision-by-committee. She knows her subject matter, understands truly what she is talking about, and keeps it grounded in reality.
