Toronto, Canada, September 3, 2013 – WSI, the world’s largest network of digital marketing consultants, hosted its 2013 Global Convention in Toronto, Canada on August 22-25.

WSI consultants were also joined by industry leading subject matter experts from organizations like Google, LinkedIn, ReachLocal, and Constant Contact.
“Regardless of tenure among WSI’s Digital Marketing Consultants, our annual Global Conventions gear each of our consultants to the fore-front of this fast-paced industry. This year’s Convention in Toronto was no exception and through the extended 4-day schedule, we facilitated a highly collaborative atmosphere,” says Doug Schust, President of WSI. “The unique environment was shaped by Consultants from all corners of the globe, with just as many, if not more, leading-edge strategies and insights to share. Each year, as the digital space evolves, the WSI network aims to adapt, progress, and continue to secure our brand as a thought leader within the digital industry. The 2013 Global Convention achieved just that, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the spirit of collaboration that seems to amplify year after year.”
Attending his second WSI Convention as a guest speaker, was Google’s Sher Khan, Strategic Partner Manager. Sher praised the significant progress that the WSI-Google partnership has made in the past year. He also spoke about the importance of the web for businesses as well as about some of Google's most recent innovations.
New to the WSI speaker lineup this year was Brian Church, Country Manager for LinkedIn Canada, who spoke on the invaluable credence LinkedIn lends brands and professionals alike.
“From hiring, to marketing, to selling, LinkedIn enables organizations and professionals – regardless of position or industry – to create boundless opportunities for themselves,” said Brian Church. “At this Convention my goal was to present a unique view into how social networking can substantially transform any brand. Integrating a tool like LinkedIn will prove invaluable to one’s digital marketing strategy. I was very pleased to be a part of WSI’s Convention in Toronto this year.”
