Social Media Trainer and Public Speaker in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Hey there! My name is Cher Jones and I’m a Social Media Trainer & Personal Branding Coach with the love of technology hard wired into my personality. I spend a ton of time on the internet to stay up-to-date on everything I teach about. So feel free to connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Instagram, and Youtube, oh and Pinterest…okay, okay I’ll stop now!
Professionally, I have over 15 years of PR, marketing and broadcasting experience and I’ve been actively using social media even before MySpace was cool. Over the years, I’ve worked with a variety of organizations including the City Of Toronto, Women In PR, NBA TV Canada, The UK Government, PokerStars, CTV, The Ontario Ministry of Education and CBC to name a few.
These days, a lot of people consider me to be one of Toronto's top personal branding experts and I’m working hard to maintain that rep! In fact, I love teaching ambitious professionals how to develop S.M.A.R.T. and authentic personal brands that attract the right opportunities. As a corporate trainer, I help companies remain relevant and competitive with social media training that means business.
I could literally talk about this social media stuff all day. To be honest, I pride myself on being able to explain it such a way that I actually get to see the “ah ha, I get it” facial expressions forming on people's faces. Ha! It’s no wonder why I’m regularly invited to speak at conferences, academic, and industry events. But, I'm still honoured each time I'm given the opportunity to share my social media tips, advice and strategies with people who want to use them right away.
For fun, I host Coral TV's BRANDed New You, Co-Host a Hangout called The Lori and Cher Show and appear regularly on CBC's Steven and Chris. And believe or not I still have the time to hang with my husband and two sons watching the Avengers Assemble in their real life and cartoon forms.
I love connecting with new people, so don't be afraid to send your request!
