Training Mindset: Foundation for Digital Storytelling

Brian Fanzo, aka @iSocialFanz, is best known as a speaker and influencer in the “live streaming” space. However, the foundation of his work after college was in Training & Development: first for the Department of Defense & Cyber Security, then at IO Datacenters, a cloud computing startup.

So how do these worlds link?

Much of Brian’s success as a technology influencer, thought leader and global speaker is rooted in what he likes to refer to as having a Training Mindset. When building out live streaming and influencer marketing projects with big brands, Brian uses his #ThinkLikeAFan philosophy, which connects the Training Mindset with the community, information, experiences, places and people.

Brian will connect the dots with real-world examples from his Training Mindset to bleeding edge tools and technology such as live streaming and digital storytelling. Brian’s passion for what he does will be evident from the first minute you meet him at the event till he walks off the stage. You’ll see him with multiple devices live streaming, tweeting, and snapchatting — but don’t worry, stop him and ask questions; Brian loves to train and share how and why he does what he does.

Just be warned: he talks fast and tweets faster, so don’t wait till he is done talking — jump in and say hi!


Why is Brian Fanzo a very special guest of The Training, Learning and Development Conference?

Because #TLDC16 host, Brent Schlenker, and Brian together launched the training curriculum for IO data centers in 2012.

You didn’t know Brian Fanzo was a training guy?

He’s that and MUCH more as he continues to impact the world through social media.

Brian’s #iSocialFanz brand is everywhere on the internet. And you may think you don’t need to see him in person after watching his keynotes on YouTube or following his snapchat. But interacting with him online is just the digital handshake. Once you connect with him, you’ll want to meet IRL for the hug.

After Brian blows your mind with the keynote, Brent will join him onstage to dive deep into the “work of training”, and make connections between social media, live streaming, storytelling, and corporate learning and development. And Brian is covering these topics together — only at #TLDC16.
