Terry Bean's passion is helping others achieve success for all who matter to them. He is known as a professional speaker, social media pro, marketing expert. But most importantly he understands the value of true connectedness.
Terry is the founder and driving force behind the fastest growing networking group in Michigan, Motor City Connect. In May 2012, Terry and his technology partner launched Unetworked, which will become the most disruptive marketing firm there is. Terry works with numerous community leaders and non-profits to make the Detroit area a better place.
Terry holds a B.S. in Psychology and a M.A. in Business Communications from Eastern Michigan University.
Terry's presentation defines RelateVertizing and gives a clear case for why businesses need to start practicing it now or continue to lose touch with their audience.
Participants will leave with a clear understanding of what RelateVertizing is, why it matters so much and how to implement it in their business.
