Attendee Spotlight: Stephanie Yolish, Community Director at Yelp, Shares Her Top Picks For #SMWNYC

With a passion for emerging technology, mobile and social media, Social Media Week attendees always strive to understand and share what’s next. This February, 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 New York, we asked a few of our attendees to share their top picks for events, talks and masterclasses taking place throughout the week.  Below, Stephanie Yolish, Community Director at Yelp, gives us a look at the events she’s most excited for:

  1. How to Set Up A Successful Social Measurement Framework
    “We all have a bottom line and we all use social media to help attain it. Measuring the effectiveness of our work day in and day out is crucial to reaching any goal and I’m interested in hearing different and new ways to do so.”
  2. Get Big Things Done: How to Connect Intelligently to Catapult Your Career
    “The title alone intrigues me and then to read that it’s targeted to professional women sealed the deal. I’m all about any venue or platform that encourages like minded women to learn from each other, engage and network.”
  3. Storytelling with Vine: How to Create Short Form Videos That People Remember
    “I don’t use Vine. Why don’t I use Vine? Shortly after this session, please follow me on Vine.”
  4. Startups to Watch: Why Entrepreneurs Will Build The Future
    “It’s never a bad thing to be ahead of the curve and I’m always open to hearing about new ideas, platforms and products.”
  5. Getting You Closer to Your Social Customer: Streamlining Social Strategy and Collaboration
    “I’m a huge believer in customer service and providing 110% to one’s client and customer base. I’m interested in hearing about Salesforce’s products and methods.”

Get your pass today, and join us and our partners for what will be an extraordinary week of exploring our upwardly mobile, connected world.
