About Chris

IMG_0606Chris Vollum is an Oakville-based parent and recognized advocate on numerous social platforms including Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Vine, Tumblr & SnapChat.

Passionate about the remarkable potential of students and social media, Chris can usually be found in a school gym, auditorium, corporate venue or conference inspiring people to take what they do every-day online, and transform it from average to AWESOME through meaningful content creation.

Eight years and 300,000+ students later, the “Social Media Fitness” school and business presentations illustrate the “how to’s” and “whys” of the world’s most prominent social sites and apps including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Vine, Snapchat, Tumblr and ASK.FM.

Chris believes strongly that unlocking an individual’s potential through a positive, hands-on experience consistently trumps fear-based teaching models. Through relatable and realistic exercises, participants develop critical thinking skills and strategies to minimize the risk of bullying, cyber-bullying and loss of reputation as well as identifying opportunities and social platforms with which to build their reputation.
