Nhat Pham is known for many things-digital media consultant, evangelist, and instructor. However, it’s his ability to help everyday Richmonders leverage technology for themselves that truly defines what he does best. As a result, Pham has become known in RVA as the “Social Media Samurai” and “Wireless Warrior.”
“Nhat is Pham-tastic,” says Christine Frint Walters, owner of Comedy Sportz Richmond. “We’ve hired him as a coach, and have taken his seminar on Social Networking, and Technology Simplified. They’ve been a bit mind blowing, chock-full of content.”
To arm self-doers with digital media know-how, Pham offers a free weekly dose of techie knowledge called The Road Warrior Show. The live internet show, found at www.roadwarriorshow.com, is a home base for Pham and co-host, Sean “Digital Knight,” to stream hundreds of useful social media tips and peddle plenty of industry buzz over Ustream.TV.
The Road Warrior Show, which was originally started as a traditional terrestrial radio show four years ago, was a way for Pham to answer the mountains of emails he receives after his professional presentations and workshops. “Now with advances with such tools as Ustream.tv and Livestream, viewers can be more interactive and even be able to see my screen and devices we sometimes feature,” explains Pham.
“What’s even better is we can now measure our audience. We get a lot of viewers watching the archives and even get quite a few national and even international viewers.” Popular topics have included a review of social dashboards, social networking management tips, location aware applications, social CRM (Contact Relationship Management), using social media to build personal brand, and the lowdown on smart phones and other gadget reviews.
When not promoting social media on his show, Pham helps clients-such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Retail Merchants Association, P.F. Chang’s, and Mekong Restaurant-to sharpen their own digital tool belts.
To catch Pham in action, tune into The Road Warrior Show at 9AM EST every Monday, or pick up a copy of his book, Social Networking Best Practices Series of Business: Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube Editions.
