Enterprise 2.0 Boston 2012 Day 2 kicked off with a series of very strong social media keynotes: Wells Fargo‘s Nathan Bricklin, Nike‘s Richard Foo, American Airlines’ Phillip Easter, FedEx’s Bryan Barringer, and Lithium Technologies’ Michael Wu.
SMB Research stopped in at the WebInno (Web Innovators Group) event this week. We cannot speak to the previous 30 WebInno’s (or even whether there have been 30 previous WebInno’s), but WebInno31 was a bit of a hoot.
SMB Research spent some time this past week at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference. The TechWeb folks put on a very good conference as they usually do, crafting a lot of different sessions on a lot of different topics. If you have anything to do with social media, or are working on your company’s social business strategy, this is really a can’t miss event. Put this on your calendar for next year: June 18 – 21, 2012, in Boston. The theme of this year’s conference “Building Social Business” reflects a maturation of the market from the conceptual to the execution in social business strategy. An estimated 1,600 attendees descended on the new venue this year, Boston’s Hynes Convention Center, to share ideas and strategies.
We hear so often about Social Media from the technological or strategic viewpoint that I was not quite sure what to expect from the GSMI’s (Global Strategic Management Institute‘s) event, “Social Media: Legal Risks & Strategy”. While many of us are understandably excited about the promise and the opportunity of social media, the legal aspects are ignored at our own peril.
