Featured Attendee: Jill Munroe of Jocks and Stiletto Jill

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

With a passion for emerging technology, mobile and social media, Social Media Week attendees always strive to understand and share what’s next. This June, we’re excited to explore “Upwardly Mobile: The Rise of The Connected Class” throughout the conference, and what this theme represents from today until 2022, when six billion individuals will be connected to each other online. The sessions you won’t want to miss feature leading companies sharing their top strategies and predictions of what’s happening, and what’s to come.

To help you discover the best of Social Media Week Los Angeles, we teamed up with our sponsor, Music Choice, a multi-platform video and music network, to ask a few of our attendees to share their top picks for events, talks and masterclasses taking place throughout the week. Below,  Jill Munroe, the creator of the sports and pop culture site, Jocks and Stiletto Jill, gives us a look at the events she’s most excited for:

  1. The Art Of The Pitch: How To Win Work From And Service Brand Clients
    “The market is crowded right now. Learning how you can further set yourself apart is key to survival.”
  2. Bootstrapping – Turn It Down for What?
