In this episode of the Business Builders Show, our guest is Tara Hunt, the founder of Truly, a Toronto-based agency focused on helping clients reach their business and growth goals through insights-driven social strategies. Tara Hunt is a digital marketing “native” (that is, she’s been at the forefront of digital since 1992). She’s the author of “The Whuffie Factor” one of the first books on how the social web is changing business (and fun fact, she convinced Zappos’ Tony Hsieh to join Twitter). Tara walks the talk of social: she’s a LinkedIn influencer, in the top 5% of users worldwide on Twitter and hosts the “Truly Social with Tara Hunt” video series on YouTube.
Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network (January 2017 / Tarcher Perigee). She has been lauded from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“1 of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”) to Business Insider (“1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”) and Inc. (1 of “10 Most Well-Connected People in New York City's Startup Scene”). Empowering A Billion Women By 2020 included her on their list of the “100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide”. Not bad for a former corporate lawyer. She’s a limited partner in two emerging tech funds (Laconia Capital Group and Lattice Ventures) and can frequently be found on Twitter @jkhoey.
