Leveraging Social Media for Your Business
How do you feel about social media? Love it? Scared of it? Think it is silly kids' stuff? Interesting but overwhelming? Whether you are vaguely aware of social media, or savvy to the world of word clouds, fail whales, and writing on walls - this technology is going to affect your business and your life, and you better be prepared!

An impressive panel of experts from The Image Group and Elevator Up will guide you through the exciting and sometimes confusing world of social media and networking, with a focus on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Learn why you need to care about this phenomenon, get an overview of the most popular social media outlets, and learn how it can have a positive effect on your organization. Join us after the Early Bird Breakfast for informal hands-on instruction and discussion. You can be a social media neophyte or a raving fanatic, and there will be something for you! Tweeting during the session is highly encouraged!
