6:30pm - 9:30pm


A Boston Social Media Club Event



Sponsoring Host: Business Wire


Social media is sometimes viewed as a tool that allows smaller organizations to level the playing field against larger competitors. While that certainly can be the case, large enterprises are learning to put social media to work as well. But the hows the whys and the results of social media - as well as the lessons learned - are very different. This panel is intended to describe how corporate America is putting social media to use, as well as the unique promise and pitfalls facing large organizations.


Our current panelists include:
