Welcome, I am Jaime Punishill, I’ll be your conference chairperson for the next two days. It’s great to be back in Boston. I worked and lived here for about a decade before I moved to NY 4 years ago, and actually stayed in this hotel when it first opened and there was literally nothing else around here. In fact there are quite a few ex-Bean town residents here today. And for you locals, I’d like to point out that since our arrival yesterday afternoon, the Celtics won. The Bruins won. The Sox blew out the Angels. And the water is drinkable again. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Glad we could help. It’s an honor to be hosting such a distinguished roster of speakers. I am going to spend the next 15 min or so setting the stage and getting you ready and excited for a great 2 days. A year ago, if you had tried to put this conference together, you couldn’t have found all these speakers. Some like me, didn’t have their current jobs – in fact their jobs didn’t exist. I took my job as head of social media last September, and became the face of Citi in Social media.
