1) Having Social Media Literacy and Knowledge: Key insights, business intelligence and trends that will give you the edge.

2) Having an Integrated Social Business Strategy: The most profitable marketing and sales initiatives combine social media, mobile marketing and traditional media and selling. We show you how to do this.

3) Building the Ultimate Social Media Management Process and System: Key tools, systems and processes to turn social media communications into a true revenue generator and business tool.

4) Infusing Social DNA Into Your Organization: To win in social and digital you must scale. A social media department is not the answer. You need to build a social DNA into every department – sales, customer service, marketing and with the senior execs in your organization. We will walk you through this process step-by-step. Whether you're a solo-preneneur or running a large organization you have to make social media a part of all critical business activities.Boot Camp Agenda at a Glance:

“As a newbie to social media and it’s practical applications to business, attending Socialized’s bootcamp was an invaluable experience. It provided me with the background and tools that I need to launch our company’s Facebook Page and Twitter account and actively engage and communicate with our stakeholders, shareholders and the communities that we work in. I am excited about embarking upon this new phase of our communications program and am thankful that the Socialized team has given me the tools I need to make it a success.”

"The social media bootcamp was truly worthwhile. Shane is a captivating presenter that was able to tailor the examples and discussion to the individuals and their organizations, allowing each participant to leave with real world tools for understanding, implementing and improving their social media channels. I entered the day feeling a little overwhelmed with how little experience I had working with social media. After breaking down each social media platform in an easy to understand, in-depth presentation, I left feeling confident with the knowledge and tools I gained at the workshop."

– Brendan Matthews, Manager – Business Operations, Canada Snowboard

"Shane is a natural CSO…he makes the art of selling using Social Media look very easy and natural. Shane has since spoken to ACL in two other Sales Kick Offs and worked with our Marketing team on social media solutions. Expert, high integrity, creative, personable, and reliable, are also words I would use to describe Shane."

– Victoria Darnbrough ACL

"Most conversation around the value and benefits of social media has been centered around the Marketing function. Shane Gibson is the foremost expert I know in the area of social media as a supercharger of Sales. A master trainer, speaker and thought leader, Shane helps major companies leverage social tools to drive revenue. I highly recommend engaging him to help socialize your business."

– Eric Weaver, Senior Vice President – IPG Media Brands – Spring Creek Group

"When it comes to the realm of social media Shane has his fingers on the pulse. Shane is always at the forefront of what is going on as can be clearly seenthrough his 2 books (Sociable and Guerrilla Social Media Marketing) on the topic. His style is easy to follow and always interesting. If you haven't read the books yet, I highly recommend them both and if you ever have the opportunity to hear Shane speak on the topic of Social Media I strongly suggest you do so. I will be worth your while"

-Marc McPherson, Senior Manager – Marketing – Go to Market at Yellow Pages Group

"I attended one of Shane's Sociable seminars. I emerged with a much more thorough understanding of how social media can work effectively within a commercial environment. I was particularly impressed by his ability to make sense out of a high volume of material without making you feel overwhelmed. He also taught in relaxed and personable fashion, which made it seem as if you’re being taught by a friend as opposed to an instructor. I highly recommend Shane for seminars or anything he has to offer."
