Social Media – What’s the Big Deal?

 Speaker: Sherri Ross

Whether you're new to social media or just looking to close a few knowledge gaps, this presentation will benefit you. By now, we've all heard how valuable—even essential—social media can be. Whether your current sentiment leans more toward enthusiasm or trepidation, there's no way around the fact that social media is a far more complex field than it first seems. Diving in without a sense for what it's like can be overwhelming, and building a network that provides real value takes both savvy and hard work. No matter what your skill level is, this presentation will benefit you. Sherri Ross will help you understand the ins and outs of social media, the benefits it provides you professionally, and how to improve your social presence. 

Sherri is Birmingham’s unofficial cheerleader. Having started her social media journey in the early days of MySpace, she has leveraged nearly 20 years of working with technology and businesses to grow her presence across multiple social platforms, covering everything from the Magic City to body positivity to mental health. With her blog, YouGotRossed, and by founding Birmingham Dance Walk and Birmingham Girls Club, she’s learned the do's and don'ts of “social business,” etiquette, and engagement. By interacting with her followers, from actor Taye Diggs to TED speaker Lillian Bustle, she has helped raise awareness for issues close to her heart. Sherri has created an online presence that generates action, opening doors for organizations like One Roof, which helps Birmingham's homeless, and Birmingham Girls Club, which provides a sisterhood for local women. She strives to use social media to empower, educate, and engage her community to make a difference in Birmingham and worldwide.
