Social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Foursquare, and Google Plus along with the popularity of tablets, ultrabooks, and smartphones have forever changed the way we communicate, connect, and consume information.

Social Media Tulsa, the area's most active social media group, has rapidly become the place for thought leaders and newbies alike to share tech, mobile, and social media best practices.

March 15-16, 2012, Social Media Tulsa will host the second annual #SMTULSA Conference at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Tulsa.

“Last year’s attendees asked for more and we’re giving them more,” said Cheryl Lawson, of Party Aficionado,LLC and founder of Social Media Tulsa. “I’m thrilled to have Liz Strauss give the keynote that will kick off the now two day #SMTulsa conference.”

She's a dynamic speaker and a maven at engaging with the people who help a business thrive. Liz is co-founder of SOBCon. SOBCon is the business strategy workshop event that grew out of her popular Successful-Blog.com, an online publication which carries 4,300 articles and has 94,000 reader comments.

Liz has built strategies and products with an international network of businesses on four continents and teaches a yearly course session at the Masters Degree Level for the Digital Publishing Program at City University of London.

“Knowing where you’re going is irresistibly attractive and being irresistible is a strategy,” said Strauss. “Strategy is a realistic plan to leverage opportunity. That starts with a clear vision and mission. A focused mission makes the roadblocks irrelevant and turns challenges into opportunities.”

Liz is among an impressive list of conference speakers and keynotes, including last year’s keynote speaker, Becky McCray who returns this year to open day two of the conference.

“When we walk away from Social Media Tulsa Conference, I want all of us to be inspired, motivated, and armed with new connections and friends,” added Cheryl. “I’m confident that Liz and all of our speakers will provide us with the tools to begin strategies that meet both our personal and business goals.”
