Travel Tourism Speaker in Malaysia

Malaysia Travel Tourism Speaker

Travel Tourism Speaking in Malaysia is one of the services that MalaysiaAsia offers, as I have also been a travel and social media speaker at various seminars, expos and events around Malaysia since early 2012

This came about as I have indulged in various tourism social media projects around Malaysia and Asia and I am proud to say that I have won multiple recognized tourism awards for travel writing and social media over the years. 

Update June 2018 - I no longer do travel speaking. 

Travel Speaker in Malaysia

Since 2008, David Hogan Jr has been using main social media platforms to connect with netizens on showing the many unique places the country has to offer. 

Facebook and Twitter were the main platforms back then and I have studied the direct engagement with users by experimenting during my travels. 

My social media and digital experience date back 7 years while many new agencies and companies only embarked on this new media since 2012.

Back then, many bloggers and social media enthusiasts were still using these platforms as a personal tool where else I had taken it to the next level by sharing travel information via social media with an ethical code of conduct in a professional manner. 

Many companies or people were still in the starting stages of social media back then as Malaysia was just catching up on this area. 

Just when the industry got a grip on using it the correct and effective way, David had moved on to sharing these experiences via public speaking in 2011 hence starting his travel speaking journey with the travel and tourism industry. 

One of the main topics are about utilizing social media in the travel and tourism industry correctly as to date, many companies or organizations are still having difficulty in conveying information via social media to their clients. Most of the time, using it the wrong way. 

Topics David Jr speaks about that would interest the tourism industry;
  • What is Travel and Tourism Social Media
  • What the travel and tourism industry should know about Social Media 
  • How to effectively use social media tools to reach out to your audience
  • What social media tools to use and when
  • Pros and Cons of social media in the travel industry  
  • Are social media numbers really that important? 
  • What social media numbers really mean
  • Are bloggers reaching out to the right target market?    
  • Are clients reaching out to the right target market?
