MEET ERIN GARGAN KING
Isn't it time we work smarter online?
Erin King is the Amazon-bestselling author of Digital Persuasion: Sell Smarter in the Modern Marketplace, an international keynote speaker, and a three-time entrepreneur. Erin has been hired by The Academy Awards, The United States Navy, ABC/Disney, Nelson Mandela’s Legacy of Hope, VISA, Siemens, Hilton Worldwide, Johnson and Johnson, Hitachi, Mutual of Omaha, Merck, Abbott Laboratories, Synchrony Financial, and dozens of others elevate their digital communication style to attract attention, increase influence, and sell smarter. She founded Socialite Agency, the world's only social media firm specializing exclusively in live events. For the last decade, Socialite has helped Fortune 100 brands catapult their social media success via award-winning digital activations and campaigns. Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) awarded Socialite's work with FreemanXP as "Best Social Media" across the entire meetings industry.
Erin started her first venture, Jump Digital Media, at the age of 25 and cut her teeth building websites for brands like Whole Foods, Black and Decker, and Linksys. Her second venture, PMS.com, was a Dollar Shave Club-type subscription model for women’s monthly healthcare supplies. PMS.com launched the internet's largest social media community around the subject of menstruation, with millions of women weighing in on this formerly taboo topic. Her experience running these digital enterprises has made her a highly sought-after keynote speaker for thousands of people from all industries on stages around the world. Watch her onstage here.
When off-duty, the former world champion Irish step dancer and NCAA Division I athlete can be found biking, hiking, surfing, snowboarding, boating (basically anything outdoors) with her Alabama born and raised husband Hartman in Laguna Beach, California. And as a dual citizen of the United States and Ireland, Erin is very close to her massive, crazy Irish Catholic family. Her life mantra is “attitude of gratitude,” and right now, her only five-year plan is that someday she will be home long enough for Hartman to finally allow them to get a dog, which will be a King Charles Cavalier named Louise.
"Erin King is a high energy and engaging speaker that we were lucky to have present at World Fitness Expo 2018. She was well embraced by the audience who found her expertise in social media very helpful. Her presentation has had a positive impact on their professional lives. I would highly recommend Erin as a speaker."
