Speaking / Training

“Deborah is an excellent speaker and a social media genius! My organization has hired her to present a series of in-depth social media presentations every year since 2010. Her content is user friendly, time relevant, and she can easily break down the somewhat complicated world of social media into an everyday person’s language so it’s better understood.”

My experience with digital marketing began in 1998 when I launced my first business, an online Nanny recruiting site called NannyClassifieds.com.  I used the social media tools of the day; chat rooms, message boards and email groups, to market my business, recruit nannies, and establish myself as a leader in the industry. I eventually became a board member of the International Nanny Association, launched a private social network called NannyIsland.com, and ultimately sold my nanny business in 2011.

As you can see I bring my own personal business experience to the party. I am not a self-proclaimed social media guru because I know how to use the tools of the day. I know how to use whatever tools are available to market a business.

My style of training and speaking is probably best described by the people who have attended one of my sessions.

“Deborah Smith is fantastic!”

“Whether you are a business owner or a marketing director, Deborah Smith should be your only choice”

“She is clearly an expert on social media and networking.”



“Thoroughly enjoyed it!”

“She shares her knowledge and experiences, laced with humor, willingly and professionally taking the fear factor out of social networking.”
