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.
