Learn more about the Sustainable Social Media panels:
To truly be sustainable, an organization must become transparent, offer an authentic brand and publicly walk their talk. Social media (team blogging, twitter customer service, facebook fan pages, flickr, digg, youtube, wikipedia, etc.) enables a brand to transparently communicate WITH and offer the correct social currency TO the world in real time to make real impact.
At this panel, you can hear, learn and directly ask questions from some of the most influential, successful and conscious Social Media gurus, visionaries and executives sharing their insights, demos, and best practices of helping entities to collaborate with non-profits, governments, clubs and brands. They will also share their socio-cultural trend observations, relevant case studies, new partnership models and technologies, as well as grassroots management strategies and systems, and more.
These sessions will provide you key tools to become a catalyst for change.
