WORKSHOPS AND KEYNOTE TOPICS

WHAT DID THEY JUST SAY? TIME TO HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA LISTENING STRATEGY: WHAT IS YOUR STORY, PROMISE, INSPIRATION? 

Listening to your different audiences on whatever social platform they gather can build key tools to help you have relevant conversations in real life as well as online.

LIVING AN ARTFUL LIFE

Reputation management in the digital age can seem daunting. Everyone now carries their own brand as they post, or don’t post, online about their business and personal lives. Embracing your creative self and learning to live an artful life can take the anxiety out of the necessary diligence of writing, owning and maintaining a mission statement that will help you succeed, both offline and on!

THE CONVERSATION COMPANY: MASTER THE 4 C'S*  -- *IN THIS SESSION STEVE VAN BELLEGHAM’S CONCEPTS ON CONVERSATION MANAGEMENT.

Customer Experience: People love to talk about your service and your products. It is the key driver of consumer conversations.

Conversation: It is the goal to converse and not communicate. Listen, ask questions, facilitate the conversations and actively take part in them.

Content: Give people stuff to talk about, but do it in an authentic, positive and relevant way.

Collaboration: Involve customers in what your company does. Let them be involved in your decision making processes.

ENGAGEMENT STRATEGY - FINDING THE STORIES THAT NEED TELLING

Building a virtual newsroom is easier than you may imagine. People love to share stories.  In the session we will explore the ways you can curate content quickly and easily. We will look at what Hubspot calls the best story tellers in the world and learn exactly what it takes to become a good story teller.

SOCIAL MEDIA - WHAT A TIME SUCK!

In the session we’ll learn how to avoid the rabbit hole and stay engaged and relevant.  Time is the only thing we can’t make more of, let’s use it wisely and reap the benefits!

ENGAGEMENT, IT’S A PROMISE

Dear [insert business name], what's your promise?

Influence is meant to inspire, promises are made to be kept.  In this session we will review the difference and learn why both are an important part of your professional life.

WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY & HOW OF SOCIAL COMMUNICATION

In this six part study we will look at who your audiences are, what conversation to pursue, the best times to have those conversations and the correct platforms to be on.  Most importantly, we will look into the reason for developing online relationships and the sources available to make your efforts valuable, relevant and trackable.

I worked with Nancy for 4 years and I can attest that she is a life-long learner, leader, and relationship builder. Nancy has never met a stranger. I’ve probably sat in over 100 meetings with her and she’s always found something to connect with the person across the table- “a virtual connector of dots.” That takes both empathy and emotional intelligence. Nancy is thoughtful in her approach to everything she does which makes her excellent at business development. She is able to think strategically at ten-thousand feet while being detailed oriented in the execution of tasks. Ideas are nothing without execution and Nancy balances those effortlessly. Having Nancy is your corner is nothing short of incredible.
— RYAN CARTER, FOUNDER/CEO PARCHUTE MEDIA, LLC
Nancy did a spectacular job rebuilding MDSave’s social media presence. One heck of a turnaround job. She was creative, reliable and has a solid work ethic. She came to the table with fresh ideas, was always on time and always kept a great sense of humor.
— Chad Blackburn Vice President Business Development MDSave,Inc.

"I came to Nancy because I wanted to build my brand through blogging/social media and had zero knowledge about how to do it. She was the perfect person for the job. Her blend of social media expertise and calm, positive demeanor was exactly what I needed. 

Consultant/coach/patient trainer, she helped me create a path to launching my blog and gave me skills along the way. She made me feel like what I wanted to achieve was possible, and then got me there. There is lots left to do, but I feel confident that we will partner to achieve the long term results I'm hoping for."

- Lisa Pote, Consultant

Nancy VanReece is the real thing. She knows how to build an effective social media brand/platform. Even better, she makes this complex, arcane world accessible (and dare I say FUN) for her clients. She stands on the valuable ground where social media, branding and marketing intersect. I’m incredibly relieved to have her on my team!
— Amy Lynch, Generational Edge
What can be said about Nancy VanReece that you may not already know? There is a general consensus (and a look at her LinkedIn recommendations confirms this) regarding her wide-ranging talent for just about everything at which she tries her hand. As communications director at the Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation (GBBF), I was responsible for helping to coordinate a statewide summit featuring thought leaders and communications experts in the non-profit arena. During the planning phase for the event, when charged with finding a presenter for the topic of social media engagement, I knew immediately that Nancy was the best possible choice. Nancy is on the cutting edge when it comes to helping organizations create comprehensive social media engagement strategies. Her presentation at the Tennessee Executive Residence was eloquent, sleek, articulate and – most significantly – effective. Our attendees left the summit invigorated with a real sense of how to implement Nancy’s ideas and reach more of their constituents in the ever-evolving ecosystem of social media platforms. I cannot recommend her highly enough, and I hope to work with her often in the future.
— Kirk Graves, Communications Director, Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation
Nancy has completely transformed our social media program, creating a viable and robust presence for us across a variety of platforms, from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to Google+ and Pinterest. She has played a critical role in upgrading and maintaining our website, and she piloted the launch of the Nashville Symphony’s mobile app, which today has been downloaded more than 5,000 times.

Nancy’s commitment to the job has been beyond compare, as she has spent countless evenings tethered to her iPad, monitoring and responding to the outpouring of feedback we receive through our social networks. Day in and day out, she has created, organized and posted dynamic content that represents the full breadth of who we are and what we do here at the Nashville Symphony — our concerts, our musicians, our education programs, you name it. We are a better institution for all of the incredible work that she has done, and she’ll be greatly missed.

In her own words: “I have enjoyed my nearly two years with the organization. Over 16,000 tweets and 2,200 Facebook posts later — totaling 204 million impressions — we have grown a great community on 11 platforms having 500+ conversations a week. I look forward to working with new clients as effectively!”
— Sr. Director of Marketing|Communications, Nashville Symphony
Nancy put together a intensive 2 day workshop for Engage Kingsport and Kingsport Cultural Arts. The workshops gave individual artists the confidence and tools they need to enter the Social Media world as well as helped regional arts organizations refine and enhance their current social media strategies.
— Bonnie Macdonald, Director, City of Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts
Nancy was fun and informative. As the Luncheon Keynote Speaker for the Tennessee Conference on Social Welfare, Nancy provided great insight to a representation of over 20 different social service agencies. Her presentation spoke to each agency and everyone left with a more forward thinking mindset of social media and how it can be most effective and beneficial in telling their agency’s story! We loved Nancy!
— LaTamera Woodley, LAPSW
