After weeks of preparation it was finally time to present at JMU’s International Student Leadership Conference. Kelly Ford and myself, Olivia Craig, presented on “What the Hell is Social Media? And Is Yours Contagious?”, while Andrew Carnes and Katie McAnally presented “Head in the Clouds: Effective Leadership Through Online Collaboration”. Both presentations allowed us to take the knowledge we have gained through working at TAD and share it with our peers.
With 250 students attending the conference, we knew our audience would have different levels of social media experience. These diverse experience levels allowed us to talk about many different platforms. Once giving our presentations, our audiences were just as engaged and excited about the information as we were, which made the overall experience that much more memorable.
Katie and Andrew presented on the best ways to lead organizations using various online productivity software. View their WordPress mini-blog on online productivity at ISLCcloud.wordpress.com.
