Presentation on April 28, 2009 in San Francisco at the Inbound Marketing Summit.

It's so obvious what you need to do -- the audience is there, you've got the technology lined up, and a vision of the utopia that your social strategy is going to create. The only problem: the curmudgeon in the corner office. S/he just doesn't get it! This session will examine the typical objections to a social media strategy, layout a process to follow to address those objections, and provide best practices to turn that curmudgeon into your greatest advocate.
