Join Steve Dembo, Director of Learning Communities and Social Media Strategy for Discovery Education, as he explores ways to identify your top 1%.
There are stories being told about your schools in the social spaces, whether you’re the one doing the telling or not. Do you know who’s telling the story of your schools? Jackie Huba, the author of Monster Loyalty, claims that 1% of every community is more than just a fan, they’re an evangelist that wants to share their experiences with others.
This session will allow you to explore how to redirect detractors, cultivate evangelism and help your 1% share the great things that are going on in your schools.
