Building Brand – The Power Of Social Media: Daryl D’Souza At TEDxRyersonU
“The brand is your primary asset to manage.”
Daryl D’Souza speaks to the power of defining and communicating brand; leveraging the power of social media to communicate and engage within our communities. Daryl emphasizes the vast potential of using real-time connectedness to communicate a personal focus to a global reach. His brand, Lou Dawg’s, promotes good times with great people.
Daryl D’Souza is the co-owner of the Toronto-based Lou Dawg’s restaurants, and a marketing instructor for the G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education at Ryerson University. As a Ryerson computer science alumni, he worked as an information technology professional in the eHealth industry. Daryl completed a Masters of Business Administration and launched Lou Dawg’s shortly thereafter with a business partner to create a dining experience that resonated with their personality and student roots.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
