Amy Jauman, our Chief Learning Officer, recently returned from a trip to Bahrain to teach the Social Media Strategist Certification Prep Course. Sixteen students attended this class, the second one held in Bahrain.
I composed this little poem about her trip just for some fun, and we decided to share it here.
Amy Got On A Plane
Amy got on a plane,
On a plane to Bahrain.
She talked and she talked about social media,
We swear she’s a walking verbal encyclopedia.
Her students learned social media strategy 101,
Showing how planning can be more than just fun.
Teaching community management online,
They learned that to build and engage is sublime.
She told them strategic planning is a must,
We all know that life without goals is a bust.
Marketing and communications are key,
If her students want to work for more than just free.
Project management can be challenging, yes,
But she showed them the steps to make theirs the best.
Research and analysis, she relentlessly stressed,
Are essential for social media success.
They faced compliance and governance, oh my!
Don’t be afraid, despite the glossary, you won’t die.
Amy, the NISM CLO and our queen of SMS,
Steps back on a plane to return to the U.S.
The students of Bahrain wave with tears in their eyes,
They know that her coming has enlightened their lives.
