Social Media for Coaches Presentation

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since presenting, “Social Media for Coaches,” at the 2011 NSCAA Convention in Baltimore with the one and only Ryan Knapp. A huge thank you to the NSCAA Convention Committee for inviting us to give this session, my fellow association members and convention attendees who came to watch, and all of the folks who offered insight and ideas ahead of time.

Special thanks to Mariel Wilner for always offering comprehensive feedback and inspirational ideas, and to Matt Ansbro for going out of his way to let us borrow his 4G wireless hotspot. If you’d like more information about the session, or have follow-up questions, please don’t hesitate to email me or send a tweet to @vandey01. Ryan is available too @ryanknapp.

As a follow-up to the session, I’ve uploaded the presentation which you can scroll through below. You’ll notice that most of the slides are graphic in nature (as opposed to a bunch of text), because we focused more on the discussion at hand than reading off bulleted slides. Ask Ryan what the methodology is called, he’s the king of presentations. And I’ve got to give a shout out to my first Apple Keynote deck, whereby Ryan and I controlled the slides remotely and simultaneously through our iPhones while on stage. A.MA.ZING.

To give the project a bit more flavor outside the classroom, we’ve also uploaded a .PDF that includes our presenter notes. Most of the discussion points are in here, although I will confess we went off track a couple times… I guess that’s why everybody should book their trip to the 2012 Convention in Kansas City now, to catch the real-time fumbles, folleys, feedback and fun. Enjoy!

One thought on “Social Media for Coaches Presentation

  1. Hi Amanda! Thanks very much for sharing this! Both you and Ryan did a great job. I can definitely relate to the “Fear of Exposure” part of this presentation from a personal branding perspective. While I love to learn all about the digital landscape and how it can shape a company’s presence on the web, it is much harder to also apply that knowledge towards developing a personal presence. A challenge I am sure many coaches are going through. Thanks for being such a great educator!
