Fresh out of undergrad, Christos Shepherd started – and later sold – Air Thalassa, a Greek airline. He went on to help governments and entrepreneurs in Africa to start airlines of their own. And during a stint at JetBlue, he launched award-winning products like Mint, America’s first-ever lie-flat experience.

Born in Jamaica but given a Greek name, raised in London but now living in New York, married to a Nigerian and learning Chinese (very slowly), Christos’ story spans the world. He fronted his own TV show in China, wrote for The Economist, and last year got an MBA from Stanford.

These days, Christos is a co-founder at Campfire, a revolutionary audio app that pays users to ask great questions to their favorite experts, celebrities, and podcasters. Besides eliciting and sharing intimate audio stories, users can donate their earnings to their favorite charities. On Campfire, social media does social good.

Campfire is even better for podcasters. They (and their favorite charities) get paid to answer listeners’ questions. And the app’s Silicon Valley technology eliminates trolls and repetitive questions, so that engaging with audiences becomes a breeze. All this in one world-changing app. Get.campfire.fm.

On August 18, 2017 I presented Humanizing Mental Health Through Social Media at the Melanin & Mental Health networking event. I must say this is an event I was excited about because I had the chance to put a new spin on it as a marketer that sees a therapist. In this presentation I provide tips on:

  • Creating relevant content for your audience.
  • The multiple ways to repurpose content.
  • The two distinguishing factors that makes you an expert.

I love speaking on relationship building or content and social media marketing. Contact me at info@michellengome.com to speak at your next event.
