The concept of an online Social Fresh Academy is something Jason and I have tossed around for a year or two now. I think it has tremendous potential to help businesses around the country and even around the world.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 3, 2011
Effective January 2011, Social Fresh has hired Corey Creed to take the lead with new training initiatives that will enable businesses to learn, understand, and use social media with a focus on Facebook, blogging, & Twitter.
The leading social media conference for businesses is showing its dedication to training. Since August 2009, Social Fresh has been producing quality conferences on social media in cities such as Charlotte, Nashville, Tampa, Portland, St. Louis and Atlanta. During that time, the Social Fresh blog has shown a similar dedication to quality content.
By hiring a Director of Training, Social Fresh will grow these initiatives and provide a renewed focus on training. Mr. Creed has worked with instructional design for over 20 years. His work includes designing internet marketing curriculum, coaching professional speakers, and personally serving as a corporate trainer since 1994.
Creed will still continue as president of Hippo Internet Marketing Training, which helps businesses learn Internet marketing topics such as SEO, AdWords, and more. Yet, his time will now also be spent working with Social Fresh.
The details of the multi-year contract are not disclosed. However, Social Fresh president Jason Keath notes that this decision was specifically created to grow a new online portal that will become available this spring, currently labeled as Social Fresh Academy.
"The primary responsibility of this new Director of Training position is to grow our upcoming online portal. The exact details of Social Fresh Academy will be disclosed later in Q1 2011." says Keath. "But it is intended as an online extension of our conference training and will provide significant video and other instructional content. I have no doubt it will give businesses the training and inspiration they need to be successful with social media. We're excited to have Corey on-board to grow this new and important opportunity."
Corey adds: "The concept of an online Social Fresh Academy is something Jason and I have tossed around for a year or two now. I think it has tremendous potential to help businesses around the country and even around the world."
In addition to Social Fresh Academy, a new half-day session of social media training will be added to each conference planned in 2011 and 2012. The half-day of training will be held the day before the normal conference. As Social Fresh Director of Training, Corey will assist with the development of this content and give the opening address.
