Most self-respecting social media experts wouldn’t think of letting themselves be called a social media guru—just listen to Mark Comerford at the recent Young Leaders Visitors Program Social Media Café earlier this month at Zico House in Beirut:
Nevertheless, there are some who understand the technical and the tactical of new media better than the rest of us, and let’s face it, most of them aren’t in Lebanon.
We see it as part of our job to get them here, and so we’re asking you: Who’s your digital-social-online media guru?
That is, if we could wave our magic wand and get anyone from the world of digital and social media to come to Lebanon for the sole purpose of imparting their knowledge to you, who would it be and why?
Leave your suggestions in a comment below and we’ll report back soon.
Would love to see Dion Hinchcliffe (@dhinchcliffe)

F3kBvE I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s impressing me! 🙂
Would love to meet Rebecca Corliss (@repcor) who helped create an online Inbound Marketing University for Hubspot, you can find the links below:
Well aren’t you sweet!

I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the program, Darine, and I hope to meet you some day too. 🙂
Thanks for the comments. When you have a chance, let us and other readers know a little more about why you think these experts would be great for the development of Lebanon’s web.

She’s an amazing resource for helping non-profits harness the power of social networks. It would be interesting to see how more tools can be utilized within the Lebanese context to improve the visibility and impact of these groups.
