BLASTmedia's Julie Perry to Speak at International Superyacht Society Meeting

By October 26, 2011 July 29th, 2016 Industry Perspective

While I do have a tendency to get seasick, I never get sick of hearing BLASTmedia’s very own social media diva (and vice president social media), Julie Perry, talk about emerging trends within social media. The lucky attendees at the International Superyacht Society’s Annual Membership Meeting & Breakfast, held during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, will have the opportunity to hear Julie speak as a panelist. Julie’s speaking on a panel titled, “Social Media and the Superyacht: What You Should Know.”

Among other things, the panel will discuss:

  • How much time should be devoted to delivering social media messages
  • How to determine whether clients, captains, and other targets are using these tools
  • What makes for a terrific Tweet on Twitter
  • The benefits of creating a YouTube channel (Julie Perry’s specialty!)
  • Damage control: how to tackle a problem stemming from social media
  • Monitoring your own company’s image on social media

As you may recall, this isn’t Julie’s first boat show – she keynoted the Marine Marketers of America’s Meeting at the Miami Boat Show earlier this year. In addition, many in the yachting world might know Julie as the author of “The Insiders’ Guide to Becoming a Yacht Stewardess” (her book just celebrated its fifth birthday!) or as the former VP of Marketing for TheBoaters.com social network (2007). Julie was also the creator, writer and host of TheBoaters TV video blog, for which she has received over 850,000 views on YouTube alone (sorry, had to brag about her).

WHO: Julie Perry, VP and director of social media, BLASTmedia. Moderated by Diane Byrne of MegayachtNews.com, other panelists include Sarah Bensimon of IGY Marinas, Kathy Kennedy of Ferretti Group, Brett Keil of The Maritime Executive, and Scott Lockman of Marsh Private Client Services Luxury Yacht Practice.
