Relationships and Brand Building in the Social Media Age takes place in St. Louis on Thursday, November 3.
A unique opportunity to go beyond the typical 101 material and think together about business growth with social media, the event features a great lineup of speakers, with the foundation of the day’s learning coming from an interactive workshop session lead by Valeria Maltoni.
Valeria is known online for her acclaimed Conversation Agent blog, and on Twitter as @ConversationAge. She brings more than 20 years of solid business experience leading engagement for multiple Fortune 500 brands. 10 of those years have focused on using online and social media to take brands to “what’s next” in their engagement cycle. Valeria is describing her keynote session as “the conversation we never had about social media and desperately need to have to make sense of what works and what doesn’t. The prequel to the tactical implementations that have followed in the last couple of years.” Her focus will be on why rather than just how.
For some great insights in what to expect, read this interview with Valeria talking specially about her coming session at Social: IRL.
We’re excited for this very different perspective and valuable insights from someone as highly regarded as Valeria. Additional sessions offered during the day will include a look at important practical subjects such as developing relationships through content, social CRM, and important but often overlooked legal issues surrounding ownership of online content and communities.
In addition to a day of highly engaged in-depth learning, attendees can expect quality networking with a focus on creating relationships that continue well after the event.
