Recap: My workshop at Syracuse University

Talking to SU students about social media By Mercedes Sanchez

college motivational speaker mercedes sanchez latina Many thanks to Syracuse University for inviting me to speak about social media.

For my talk, titled Branding Yourself: Lessons in Social Media, I shared what has worked for me throughout the past couple of years.

I shared stories about my career- from the days at the New York Post, working as a press officer for the Bronx Borough President, producing segments for WNBC-TV, being laid off, and then reinventing myself and creating opportunities when I didn't see any.

I spoke about finding your niche, becoming credible, being your own PR person, and finding your audience.

When speaking to students I always worry about being boring, but they were super engaged and asking questions throughout and after. I was relieved!

Here are some photos from yesterday and a couple of slides (I had about 30).
