Julien Smith to speak at Victoria’s Social Media Club – January 20th

Julien Smith will be our featured speaker at Victoria’s Social Media Club on January 20th!

Julien Smith is co-author with Chris Brogan of Trust Agents, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller that has been singled out on as one of the top 10 business and investing books of 2009.

To quote Julien and Chris:

“This book is your guide to a new form of power broker–web natives who trade in trust, reputation, and relationships using tools you may never even have heard of. You will learn what you need to look for in such an agent for your business or how to become one yourself. Trust Agents is your guide to the deep end of meaningful relationships on the web.

Our goal is to help you build influence, improve reputation, and earn trust.”

Since its launch in August, Trust Agents hit:

  • the New York Times bestseller list (#13)
  • the Wall Street Journal bestseller list (#8)
  • the Amazon top 100 list (#30)
  • the Amazon Best Books of 2009 list (for business and investment).

This event is being held in conjunction with the Third Tuesday cross-Canada tour, and we are grateful for the generous support of  Joe Thornley and Thornley Fallis, Morningside Estate B and B, Level Ground Trading, University Canada West, and of course our speaker, Julien Smith.
