Part of your professional success is knowing that you never stop learning, which is why we’ve put together an afternoon with 3 experts -- media personality Valerie Smaldone, social media guru Roni Jenkins, and women’s leadership expert, Leslie Grossman – all of whom we’ve personally learned a lot from. If you’re looking for that edge that will take your career or business to the next level, this may be the best three hours you will spend on a Saturday afternoon -- and it will cost you less than a pair of a shoes. This is not a lecture series. Each expert will present a hands on-workshop. You will get to ask questions and participate throughout the afternoon. You will leave with strategies you can put into action immediately. And we’ll end the day with wine and cheese so you can network with other great Tomatoes including our experts too. Workshop details below.

Her workshop will help you navigate the social networks:

Workshop 2. Become a Sought Out Expert in Your Field. We are fortunate to live during a time when the media is totally democratized and individuals with a strong message, a product or service to promote can go directly to consumer. Valerie Smaldone's How to be a Media Personality Boot Camp will show you how to:
- Use media to stand out in your field.
- Build a profile as an expert.
- Create compelling content to distribute online.
- Help to formulate and crystallize your message.
- Learn how to give a sharp interview.
During this one hour workshop, Valerie will choose participants from the audience to work with her to practice the art of a compelling interview, and create engaging content for an online presence.
Media personality Valerie Smaldone is known for being on New York radio and television for over two decades. After scoring numerous awards for her on air performance (including 5 Billboard awards), Valerie transitioned to working as a producer and host in the digital media space and now helms Valerie Smaldone Media Worldwide.
