Digital Dames, Inc. and Yuspie, LLC are proud to present the 7th Social Media Dames UNconference, August 3. You will not find a keynote speaker at an UNconference, just 100 powerful women and men in one room sharing their social media skills, making long-lasting connections and influential digital friends.

The format ensures the participants in the room learn these skills in an environment that is effective and entertaining: “Edutainment” as Co-Founder Dr. Erin Albert refers to it. This year will also feature, for the first time ever, male storytellers.

This is the 5th Anniversary of the UNconference, but the 7th UNconference in total. As a statewide initiative to teach women to leverage the power of social media, previous UNconferences have taken place in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, Greenwood, Fishers and this year in Carmel. Co-Founder, Amy Stark, CEO of Digital Dames, Inc. and a Carmel resident, is thrilled to be shining a light on her hometown.

“I grew up in Fort Wayne, but Carmel is where I call home,” she says. “The UNconference format has ruined me for all other conference types, much the same way roundabouts have ruined me for all other traffic management systems.” 

Among the 100 professionals in the room, you will find 18 Social Media Dames storytellers. Each will share a five-minute Social Media story, or a bit of wisdom, to help everyone in the room learn a digital skill. The list of influential storytellers includes:

  • Nancy Heck Director of Community Relations & Economic Development at City of Carmel; @nsjheck on twitter.
  • Tiffany Benedict BrowneExuberant, vintage wearing, world-traveling, quirky idea machine and creator/ Chief Inspiration Officer of Historic @historicindiana on twitter.
