The Beginning

Socially Savvy started as fueled by a passion to help Veterans and their families transitioning out of service and into the connected economy.

Our work with the military community continues with many Veterans and their dependents making successful transitions and securing employment.

"Mark helped guide me towards my 'Social Moment.' My first job after graduate school and the military was a Business Development role in Defense that required significant international travel. When looking for a new role in tech that allowed me to spend more time with my wife and kids, Mark turned the relationship key that led me to my current role which I greatly enjoy at Quickbase." Neil Forbes

Our Corporate & Academic Story

The initial mission led to broader outreach through LinkedIn, the development of corporate relationships, and Socially Savvy was born. Our affiliation with the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) encouraged us to develop a curriculum to formalize, "the science of social.” This resulted in our first academic and corporate training solutions.

In 2015, we focused our academic efforts on Career & Technical Education (CTE) and were invited to host a roundtable at the Association for Career and Technical Education’s (ACTE) Best Practices & Innovations Conference. Socially Savvy has continued to take part in regional and state CTE, business education, and parochial school events.

Our Membership Organization Story

At a corporate networking event in 2016, we were introduced to the Boston Chapter President of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA). This discussion led to an introduction to the leadership of the NFBPA in Washington, DC and delivery of a professional development training workshop at the Alexandria, Virginia chapter, South Florida chapter, and at the annual 2018 national event.

In 2019, our membership organization work expanded to state bar associations with the delivery of continuous legal education (CLE) training for the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) and other state CLE programs.

Our Government Story

In 2019, we continue to expand into new sectors including city and state continuing professional education (CPE). We are training the Missouri City, TX city leadership this fall and presenting at the Leadership NOW Symposium. We have also been pre-qualified as a partner for Academic Services and Workforce Readiness in New York City.

The Story Continues...

We look forward to presenting in December 2019 at the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE)’s CareerTech VISION conference and expanding our footprint for continuing professional education (CPE) with state certified public accountant (CPA) associations. We continue to learn new ways to provide blended and distance learning experiences that resonate with our customers.

Our online course has received praise for its depth and quality, and we continue to evolve our solutions to remain current with the change occurring across the social media and the business communication landscape.
