The Social Chicks have a passion for strategic marketing, communications and PR with panache. Plus, we just LOVE social (as long as its consciously done!) so we’re advocates for all things social and engaging – in business and in life!
The Social Chicks are all about social media education, mentorship and training. We partner up and collaborate to keep our clients and communities connected. We know there is an overwhelming amount of information out there about the ever-changing world of social media. We help each other stay up-to-date, and we help you stay up-to-date, too.
Our coop is housed at Main Street Communications Ltd., run by Vicki McLeod of vickimcleod.com, and her hubby Ian, and where we get tons of loving support from Kimmy Dean, AdminChick, and co-coach and workshop support Kathy Irwin, and Kitchenette Lorene Stuart who keeps the home fires burning on the blog at Dishing in the Kitchen.
