From small businesses to mainstream media to large corporations, social media is impacting the way we do business and how we communicate.
For many, social media is a new experience. One that requires learning by trial and error.
That’s where the value of conferences come in. Instead of learning by trial and error yourself, you can learn from individuals who have gone down the same beginning path that you have. You can learn from their experiences – both bad and good.
On May 7, the Social Media Unplugged conference comes to Calgary. There are great speakers from well-recognized organizations. The speaker list includes:
Rochelle Grayson, BookRiff Media Inc.
Marty Yaskowich, Tribal DDB Worldwide
Elijah van der Giessen, David Suski Foundation
Dave Olson, HootSuite Media Inc.
Crystal Henrickson, Yelp Canada
Patti Blackstaffe, Strategic Sense Inc.
