SUMMIT ON SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIES
SAN FRANCISCO, California – Top leading minds in the social media arena came together for Global Strategic Management Institute’s 2010 Social Media Strategies Summit on September 15 – 17 at the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel to educate attendee’s on the best ways to utilize social networks.
Participants enjoyed three full days of valuable information from leaders like, Nascar’s Director of Business Communications, Andrew Giangola, social media superstar David Peck and Tim Washer, Senior Marketing Manager of Cisco Systems just to name a few. Session armed attendee’s with tools to measure return on investment (ROI), advice on how to run social media campaigns in highly regulated industries, tips for ways to better engage consumers, and sought after case studies from brands who are doing it right. Here is what speakers and attendee’s had to say about the event:
“It was a pleasure to serve as Chairman of the Social Media Strategies Summit,” says Jake Wengroff, Global Director of Corporate Communications for Frost & Sullivan. “Hailing from diverse backgrounds and holding a wide range of job titles, the speakers delivered unique insights to a highly engaged audience. I look forward to the next Summit in 2011.”
“The attendees at the Social Media Strategies Summit were a complimentary range of social media gurus and fresh newbies who were more than eager to learn. The speaker presentations were mixed like a Neapolitan sundae, from high-level case studies, to deep-dive analytics and in-the-weeds tactics. There was something of value for everyone, regardless of the level of previous experience you might have brought to the table.” – Myles Bristowe CMO of COMMCreative
“I walked away with a wealth of new knowledge” Nicole Gronzo, Leo Burnett.
“I enjoyed the event, got the important information I was looking for & can bring back some great ideas to the office. I’d consider another GSMI in the future for sure” Farrell Johnson, Westlake Financial Services.
“I enjoyed it very much, felt the conference was great, informative & well put together” Danielle Dawson, Spidell Publishing.
“Thought it was a great mix of speakers, which was needed because everyone’s needs are different. I learned a lot of information that will be useful for our social media needs” Jenny O’Brien, Lifetouch National School Studios.
The 2010 Social Media Strategy Summit was a huge success and we are excited to announce GSMI will be hosting a second Social Media Strategy Summit February 8-10 in San Francisco. Check our website in the coming weeks for details. www.gsmiweb.com
