Baton Rouge, United States
Claim Your Journey
Speaker: Brandon Williams, founder of Claim Your Journey
Brandon Williams loves to run. In fact, he loves running so much, he’s created an online community for like-minded runners living in Louisiana. The community, Claim Your Journey (www.claimyourjourney.com), has empowered visitors to lead a healthier lifestyle through encouragement. It has been so successful that many of the thousands of Claim Your Journey members show their pride by wearing “Run Louisiana” T-shirts and Tweeting using the hash tag #RunLA.
The LSU graduate and Baton Rouge native founded the award-winning site in 2011 as a personal blog about training for and participating in the Forge Trail Series. Since then, Claim Your Journey has grown quickly as one of the most popular destinations for running and wellness in Louisiana, becoming an influence on the local community. He is still based here, and divides his time across the state of Louisiana.
Brandon will speak about his passion for running and living a healthy lifestyle that ultimately spurred the creation of Claim Your Journey. We'll learn how Brandon and the Claim Your Journey team (consisting of approximately 20 bloggers, 7 contributors and a group of advisors) used digital and social media to grow www.claimyourjourney.com into the influence it has become today.
**Please confirm your attendance by 12pm on Tuesday, July 10th.**
Lunch will be served buffet style with two entrees to choose from as well as a salad, side and dessert.
