Social Media Reputation Management by Kerry RegoI was invited to the North Bay Leadership Council Frontliners meeting on December 15, 2014 to talk about reputation management in social media. For further reading, check out the blogs I’ve written on the subject in the category sidebar or by clicking here. I’ve also written a book on the topic, What You Don’t Know About Social Media CAN Hurt You: Take Control of Your Online Reputation, available in paperback or Kindle.

Kerry Rego Speaker at TLT

Today I hit an all time high record – 67 speaking engagements in one year!!!

Many of them are paid such as corporate classes on Facebook & LinkedIn or keynote engagements at corporate events. Some of them are gratis. These I reserve mostly for students. If your school would like me to come in and speak on online safety or inspirational uses of social media and tech, I’d love to do so!

Since my yearly average is about 55, I’m gonna go rest my voice now :)

(Pictured: Yesterday it was a double header with TLT/SCOE students. Talking to kids is really my favorite!)

Resources are forthcoming for my November 21, 2013 Ignite talk in Sebastopol, CA titled “Using Your 5 Senses: Future Tech and How It Will Touch You.”

Kerry Rego Consulting

Thank you very much Liners Direct for bringing me to San Diego to talk to your reps about social media, online customer service, and reputation management. I wanted your attendees to walk away with a lot of value without having to keep track of a lot of paper so I provided this link so that they can access the support information from my keynote in one place.


I don’t particularly like to fly.

I’m sitting in my local airport about to take off for San Diego. I will be the keynote speaker at a construction conference tomorrow, talking about social media, marketing, and reputation management. I’ll be paid for my work, travel expenses are covered, and I’ll sell my books to the event coordinator to give to the attendees.

I don’t do this every day (or week for that matter) but it’s becoming more frequent. Most people don’t have any idea of what my work actually looks like so I thought I’d give you more honest views of what I do on an everyday basis. I have a habit of showing you the best stuff, the manicured image. After all, it’s what I’m trained to do.

slideshare is like Youtube for Powerpoint. When I create a presentation and want the audience to have access to the content and/or share it, I’ll upload it to Slideshare.

It gets great SEO, shows up high in search results, and is excellent for reputation management. It’s all in the keywords you put into the deck description. It’s such a smart and useful tool that LinkedIn purchased it in 2012.
