Whitney Diaz, currently the Digital Brand Strategist at Verdin, is the featured speaker at the League of Women Voters Salon Series presentation on Saturday, March 1 at 10:00 a.m. in the Community Room of Union Bank. Ms. Diaz will discuss how to harness the power of social media for yourself, your family, your favorite organization, or your business to build an engaging online community and maintain personal security and privacy.
The Tribune selected Ms. Diaz last month as one of the Top 20 Under 40 in San Luis Obispo County. She met The Tribune's criteria: ". . . young women and men under the age of 40 who have demonstrated excellence in their professions and commitment to community service." Discussing her approach to social media, Ms. Diaz explains, "Digital media can often be a scary prospect for some people, but it's my job to help clients overcome those fears, and make sure they or their brand is well-represented in the digital space."
The Salon Series is a service of the League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County providing learning opportunities for League members and the public. The presentation is FREE and open to the public. For reservations and directions go to Calendar.
