The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes Steven Ehrlich to speak about “Technology, Social Media and Innovation: Changing the Ways we Engage” beginning at 2:30pm on Thursday, April 7, at the Litchfield Community Center at 421 Bantam Road in Litchfield.

Steven Ehrlich, Global Vice President for Client Development at TMP Worldwide Advertising and Communications, will demystify how new technologies are driving the way people consume information and communicate with one another. He is focused on the use of emerging tools and technologies to enhance both brand articulation and recruitment for a multitude of organizations including Areva, Boeing, Deloitte, Disney, Mondelez, P&G, and Walmart.

Splitting his time between London and New York, Steven works closely with TMP teams and clients around the world to explore, develop, and implement strategic initiatives leveraging social media and new technologies. He is often found in front of a crowd discussing candidate engagement, employer brand, digital tools and social media.

Steven has been with TMP Worldwide since 2001 and has held multiple roles including Senior Vice President, European New Business, Global Vice President, Client Development, and VP Business Development. He was the founder and President of Apply Technology, where he created Apply! the breakout product that revolutionized the online college and graduate school application market. Used by more than 750 colleges and universities, Apply! was the market leader in application technology from its inception. In 1996, Steven sold Apply Technology to The Princeton Review, where he continued to manage it.

In 1998, he left to head U.S. News & World Report’s Education Group, where he was responsible for the marketing and further development of the U.S. News College Rankings as well as other related products and services. He was also the founder and former President of the online college advising service PureAdvice.
