All too often I hear from proactive people that want to engage in social media, but don’t necessarily know where to start. Then there are those who do participate through blogs, social networks, and other social tools, but aren’t quite sure how to tie it all together into a bona fide business-oriented campaign.
Over the last year I’ve been speaking quite a bit about social media and how to not only engage, but why you should. For the first time, however, I will be doing so unplugged. The room is intimate. The speakers are among the most vocal and visionary in the world of social media and it’s an all day exchange.
This workshop is being hosted by author/consultant Shel Israel, with additional instruction and insights from social software & marketing strategist Deborah Schultz, Web Strategist Jeremiah Owyang, Social Media Club Founder Chris Heuer, Social Media Evangelist Howard Greenstein and me. Giovanni Rodriguez, founder of Hubbub, recently completed a study of 50 social media business cases and he has agreed to make his first public presentation of them.
“Starting the Conversation” is a day-long, hands-on, interactive workshop to help professional communicators ‘get’ social media programs started painlessly and effectively in the corporate workplace.
