Alive MMA

Chalkboarder’s CEO Jeffrey J Kingman will be chronicling his journey into boxing and mixed martial arts at this gym, one of the top MMA gyms in North America. His personal journey will be shared on his latest blog, Two Guys and a Fight, and distributed via social media networks.

Chalkboarder CEO assumes board presidency of Social Media Club PDX

Earlier this week the board of Social Media Club Portland (OR) handed the post of board president to me. With humility and excitement, I thank Carri Bugbee (outgoing President), for nominating this change and thank the rest of the board for placing their trust in me. Carri, it will be difficult to match the dedication and energy you have exhibited.

The international parent association of Social Media Club is launching a shift in this hot and new profession, establishing a formalization of chapters and what it means to be a social web professional.

If you are practicing social media for an organization, I strongly encourage you to seek either free or professional membership in Social Media Club.

To the board of SMC PDX, thank you for the opportunity.

PDX Food Trucks Experience 80% Growth Via Twitter

I talked with two of Portland Oregon’s leading street food trucks last week, the day after CNN Travel stated that Portland has the best street food in the world.

Check out what they have to say about street food – and how social media, especially Twitter, have empowered them to experience 80% growth.

The rest of the restaurant and hospitality industry might be able to glean some strategy from this.

Paul’s presentation, “Web Era 4 – What It Means to Restaurants” is a must-hear for Portland restaurant professionals/owners and public relations/social media service providers.

Less than 10% of USA restaurants have even begun to embrace the social web – here is the opportunity to get leading theory from the top hospitality social media thinker in North America.

Paul Barron, with over 52,000 Twitter followers, was rated in July 2010 as the top social media influencer in hospitality in the USA by Restaurant Reality Check Blog. Publisher of Fast Casual Magazine and Social Coco Blog, Paul is actively engaged with the boards of both the National Restaurant Association and Share Our Strength.

It’s our distinct pleasure to welcome Paul to speak to the Pacific Northwest hospitality and public relations/marketing/social media communities at Social Media Club PDX.

Registration is open and underway, limited to under 100. Register here at EventBrite.

Paul Barron: “Web Era 4 – What it means to the restaurant industry”

As a leader in the new restaurant, technology and social media era and also as the founder of Fast Casual.com and QSRweb.com

Change Agent has often been my moniker and I welcome it with open arms. As a Publisher and new media maven I have spent the past 16 years developing online media to build brands and amass audience.  I believe that change is the one thing that is always constant.  I feel fortunate as a founder of many blogs, podcasts, viral video and social media platforms.  Each of these experiences has helped me to be on the cutting edge of every new media push since the first web page by Tim Berners Lee in 1992.

As an expert in understanding the evolution of digital media over the past 15 years, I can say I am one of the elite in Social Media in all sectors of business and continue to grow and understand this massive shift in communication.

As a trend watcher I have had a chance to be part of the biggest shift in consumer restaurant interaction in the history of the restaurant business. In the mid 90’s I began tracking and defining the Fast Casual restaurant segment that has grown to more than a 40 billion dollar contributor to the half-a-trillion restaurant business.

As an early adopter, consumer science master, programmer, designer, social creator and best of all a student of the actual technology that drives the web and this entire new media craze, I understand what it takes to create a digital footprint and develop a social brand in today’s online world.

I am happy to talk to your brand; group or company on how new media can change the way you do business.
