Speaking Topics

From business workshops to national conferences, department retreats, professional events and more, Emily A. Hay equips audiences with real strategies that can be acted on immediately. Here are a few topics to get your wheels turning.

Use the 2020 Pivot to Rethink Your Social Media Strategy

Clear. Simple. Effective. We all know the sayings “less is more” and “quality over quantity” but have you ever truly applied that to your social media strategy?

With all the changes this year has brought, 2020 is the PERFECT time to pause, rethink and possibly pivot your social media marketing. Whether you want to start a new online initiative or are looking to make an impact on Instagram and Facebook, this session will help you free yourself from “2.0" thinking and tactics when it comes to the social media content your business is putting out into the world.

Now is the time to get into a rhythm with content that truly resonates with your followers.

While there may not be a magic formula, Emily can help you get a clear vision of the pivot to simplify your social media marketing for effective results.

Attendees will leave this session knowing:

  • How to “Marie Kondo” your social media presence. Emily will give you a litmus test to decide what content sparks joy for you and your followers.
  • How to apply the reductionist movement/millennial mindset to your social media strategy. In an era where there are more content outlets than ever, it's critical to pick the networks that WORK for your business. It might be time to rethink your approach.
  • How to squeeze every ounce of return from your efforts. We've all heard it: “work smarter; not harder.” Learn updated tactics to sprinkle into your strategy that will leave no question that they WORKED.

Work+Life Balance? Yeah right. How Work+Life INTEGRATION can change your life.

Integrate: verb. To combine one thing with another so that they become a whole.

We've heard it. The previous “work life balance” phrase implies making 2 things work separately. We women have wised up and learned balance may be an impossible standard. But flip your mindset toward INTEGRATION and you may have found the key to feeling more fulfilled. And doesn't fulfillment lead you to feeling like you have it all?

For ten years, Emily A. Hay, entrepreneur and founder of Hay There Social Media, and her team of women have had on-the-job training integrating work and personal life into one. She has her feet firmly planted in two worlds as mama and boss lady and believes living in what she has dubbed, “Work+Life Integration Nation”™ is the key to an easier day and a happier life for modern women.

Hear from this Type A linear thinker who thought she created a very balanced business until she added in the mess of motherhood. Her firsthand account on how social media marketing, client management and the implementation of intentional systems helped her and her team navigate these waters. Emily will also share how a perspective change and leaning into your own intuition can often make ALL the difference in personal and professional fulfillment.

Say "YES" before you are ready and open the doors you didn’t know existed!

Attendees will leave this session knowing:

  • Working within your limits and creating space for growth, while not getting burned out and stressed
  • Time-is-on-your-side management tips so you can work in short “bursts” in between all the other things you have to do in a day. In a pandemic.
  • True North compassing skills, so you are doing the WORK you love for clients you LOVE and not wasting time trying to just make a buck.
