Who Should Attend
The objective of this event is to begin bridging the gulf that currently exists between the current developers/users of Social Media tools and those organizations that have not yet adopted those tools. Each group has much to learn from the other, and a conversation is the best way to begin to build that bridge. So there are really two audiences for this event:
* People that are currently familiar with Social Media, and want to see it used more effectively in professional and organizational settings.
* People that do not currently use Social Media, but have heard from friends and main stream media that it may be of benefit to their organization.
So let’s start a conversation…
