Closing General Session

Johnny Quinn

The Punch Heard Around the World
Johnny Quinn, U.S. Olympian

During the Sochi Olympics, I got stuck in my Olympic Village bathroom and had to break down the door. The picture of the busted bathroom door went viral and has been retweeted over 27,000 times and seen by an estimated 10 million people around the world! I have been featured on ABC, CNN, CBS, Good Morning America, NBC Olympics, Fox Sports, TIME, USA Today and many other media and news outlets around the world. I earned a spot to compete on the popular TV show, American Ninja Warrior, picked up an endorsement deal from McDonald’s and even trained with a S.W.A.T. team. They showed me how to break down a door the right way with a battering ram!

This interactive presentation guides you through the “ins and outs” of social media responsibility and how to use you digital platform to you advantage. We look at, and dissect, industry leaders and “the flops” when it comes to posting online content. It is important to understand that what people and brands post online today can, and will, affect their relationship with clients and members. Your online content can also affect opportunities down the road with future employers.

In this session you learn about:

  • The rules of social media
  • It's storytelling, not selling online
  • Play for free to grow your brand
