Socially savvy students from St. Lawrence College Ontario storm #pivotcon

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and speaking with 3rd year marketing students from St. Lawrence College, Ontario at the Pivot conference in New York this week.

I came across Sabrina Eshoo (@SabrinaEshoo) via a tweet she posted arguing her case as to why she should get a free pass to Pivoton.

It reminded me a lot of myself when back at University in Adelaide, and I was looking for a vacation work placement – I needed to do something to stand out from the crowd and get noticed.

That was back in 1993 – well before social media.

I was delighted to hear that Sabrina, and some of her classmates including Jesse Whale (@iamjesselouise) and their teacher Lindsey Fair (@lindseyfair) made it to the Pivot Conference from Ontario.  The class even has their own hashtag #imcslc to mark tweets relevant to their course.

On the second day of the conference, they invited me to a Google hangout, where I was able to interact with Sabrina and Jesse’s class members back in Ontario and have a discussion about Kred, social media and influence.

I was flattered to be asked to contribute to their lesson, and I believe that all leaders in social have an obligation to help guide and coach the next generation of socially savvy marketers.

Hats off to Lindsey for being a very forward thinking teacher and exposing her students directly to the latest thinkers and latest thinking in social.

    Andrew my students had a great time and were very impressed with your openness and willingness to share your time with them. I look forward to the next time our paths cross.

    I just wanted to thank you again for taking the time out to speak with us. It was definitely my most memorable moment. Just to repeat what Lindsey has said, it was so refreshing to see your willingness to share your time & knowledge. I really believe all the social media industry influencers should be the same. Thanks again.

    Lindsey, I am sure our paths will cross virtually very soon, and perhaps see you at Pivot in 2013 with your next batch of social savvy students?
