gary_inc-229x300Gary Vaynerchuk is the ultimate businessman. Born with an entrepreneurial spirit, he is a proven investor and advisor in the world of startups, and now an expert on the Fortune 500 world, through is work as CEO of Vaynermedia, a social media marketing agency.

With over 1 million followers on Twitter, Gary is recognized internationally as one of the top people every entrepreneur should follow and a social media trailblazer. He’s received substantial attention from the media including guest appearances on Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Ellen. Recently, he was featured on the cover of Inc. Magazine and was the subject of a 4000+ word article in the New York Times. Gary’s ultimate goal is to own the New York Jets.


Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook!

Gary will share hard-won advice on how to connect with customers – and beat your competition – by providing a blueprint for social media marketing strategies that really works.

When managers and marketers outline their social media strategies, they plan for the “right hook”—their next sale or campaign that’s going to knock out the competition. Even companies committed to jabbing—patiently engaging with customers to build the relationships crucial to successful social media campaigns—want to land the punch that will take down their opponent or their customer’s resistance in one blow. Right hooks convert traffic to sales and easily show results. Except when they don’t.

Thanks to massive change and proliferation in social media platforms, the winning combination of jabs and right hooks is different now. Vaynerchuk shows that while communication is still key, context matters more than ever. It’s not just about developing high-quality content, but developing high-quality content perfectly adapted to specific social media platforms and mobile devices.

Gary has generously agreed to do an hour-long BONUS session prior to the “Main Event”. The format will be an uncensored Q&A.

More about Gary

Over three decades ago, Gary got his start in business by ripping flowers out of people’s yards and selling them back. Years later, he would use that savvy to grow his family’s wine store, from $3 to $45 million in just a few short years by launching, one of America’s first wine websites. Fast forward the spring of 2009 and he’s continued to use that same business savvy, along with his brother AJ, to build VaynerMedia, a new breed of agency that helps Fortune 500 companies like GE, PepsiCo, Hasbro and the New York Jets find their social media voices and build their digital brands. Along the way Gary launched a stratospherically successful internet wine show, written two bestselling books, and beaten Dr. Oz in basketball.


See what some attendees had to say about cadre events:

“The best events in Washington are sponsored by cadre. Where else would you find amazing speakers, tremendous learning, and conversations with DC’s most remarkable business leaders all under one roof?! If you get the chance to attend a cadre event, don’t hesitate. Plan to arrive early, stay late, and have a great time in the process meeting some of the most amazing people you’ve ever come across in Washington, DC.”
— Joey Coleman

“Great event thanks as much to the quality of the audience, as the quality of the speakers. Where cadre meets, continues to be the place to be and spend time with DCs business power-ati!”
— Glen Hellman

“I think it’s great to bring together a group of people who are focused on having a powerful experience in the process of serving each other. The spirit of the Cadre members and guests is open and collaborative, and makes for a special time together.”
— Tom Cooper

“This was the friendliest networking event I have ever attended. As a complete introvert, I always kind of dread these things. But I had a great time. I knew a lot of people there and met new people. It was great.”
— Susan Rose
