Hi! 👋🏽 I am Shama. @Shama on Twitter if that’s your thing. (In case you are wondering, it helps to be one of the first 2000 users to get your first name as a handle.) I’m Founder & CEO of Zen Media- a digital marketing and PR firm. We help tech and b2b brands increase market share using our proprietary PESO model. We are the ONLY new media agency to be honored by both by the Whitehouse and the United Nations as a Top 100 company in North America. I’ve had the honor of working with some of the best brands in the world, including Chase Business, The US Navy, Tupperware, Forbes, NASA, COX Communications, TATA, McKinsey, Bain, and more. I am the author of TWO best-selling books…The Zen of Social Media Marketing (now in its 4th edition) and Momentum: How to Propel Your Marketing and Transform Your Brand in the Digital Age. I keynote and present on marketing and business and technology AROUND the world - seriously - Namibia to Hong Kong…and for now, remotely. “Top Virtual Speaker for Marketing” - ReadWrite And oh yeah - I’ve been on Forbes, Inc, AND Business Week’s Top 30 under 30 entrepreneurs list…actually, Business Week was 25 under 25. Here’s the kicker. I started with nothing, nada, ZERO. I had $1500 bucks to my name when I started my company. I don’t come from money. The point is - I know a thing or two about building brands and empires. And, I love sharing my knowledge. I guess that’s why I’ve made LinkedIn’s Top 10 Voices in Marketing for four years in a row. You’re only a stranger once. Say hello. ——
