SMBMTL18 – A Conversation with Mitch Joel

A conversation with: Mitch Joel

Mitch Joel, Social Media Breakfast Montreal

On January 22nd, 2014, the Social Media Breakfast Montreal is lucky and proud to have back Mitch Joel.

Please note that the event will be held in English.


Mitch was kind enough to take part in our 2nd ever event back in early 2010, where a longshot email I’d written requesting he consider taking part in a future event was met with a phone call from the man not 30 minutes later where he wholeheartedly agreed to help our fledgling group.

Because of the local support we’ve received from sought after speakers and industry experts like Mitch, the #SMBMTL is moving into its 5th year and showing no signs of letting up. We are grateful for not only them, but you, the attendees (close to 1000 people over the almost 22 events), who choose to participate and take time from your days to meet with peers and hopefully learn new things and make new contacts to take back and use to impact your businesses.

This upcoming event with Mitch will be no different in that you’ll be encouraged to converse, ask questions, and even challenge some of the wisdom imparted via CTRL ALT Delete, Mitch’s latest book. Clearly you’ll have an easier time following along if you pick up and read the book beforehand, but for those that don’t they’ll be for sale at the event, and one lucky winner will take away an autographed version as a door prize

Here’s a quick write up and pic for those unfamiliar with Mitch, and for those wanting to learn more, you can check out this page on the Twist Image site.

Mitch Joel is President of Twist Image – one of the largest independent Digital Marketing agencies in North America. Marketing Magazine dubbed him the “Rock Star of Digital Marketing” and called him, “one of North America’s leading digital visionaries.” Mitch is a past Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Marketing Association and a former Board Member of the Interactive Advertising Bureau of Canada.

Mitch speaks frequently to diverse groups like Wal-Mart, Starbucks, Nestle, Procter and Gamble, Unilever and has shared the stage with former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson, Malcolm Gladwell, Anthony Robbins, Tom Peters and Dr. Phil.

Mitch is a regular columnist for the Harvard Business Review, The Huffington Post and other magazines and newspapers. His first book, Six Pixels of Separation (published by Grand Central Publishing – Hachette Book

Group), named after his successful Blog and Podcast is a business and marketing bestseller. His latest book, CTRL ALT Delete, (also published by Grand Central Publishing) was released in May 2013.

As with any invited guest, we ask that you observe the start and finish times of the event courteously. The conversation will get under way no later than 8:30am and will run until 10am. The expectation is such that attendees come armed and ready with questions for Mitch and the other attendees to reflect and comment on.
