Sept 26: Achieve Social Media Success In B2B

Happy customers is the secret to B2B success, and social media is pivotal in the whole B2B sales process. In this panel, you’ll learn the subtleties of communicating in the B2B context, focusing on content strategy, measurement and integrating social.

Sept 26: #SMWHootUp

After the panels and keynotes, join the Owls from HootSuite, including Allan Blair Beaton and a host of HootSuite UK Diplomats who will show you how you can save time, develop an audience and master your social media management. The HootUp is 6:30 – 9:30 PM at Club Workspace Clerkenwell — 27-31, Clerkenwell Close.

We’ll keep things casual and have some cold beverages on hand so you can unwind and enjoy yourself in the company of other social media aficionados. RSVP on eventbrite.

As soon as I hear the term 'social media', in an instant I'm turned on! A Twitter enthusiast and a marketing graduate, I have an idea of how digital works in theory and some idea of how to put it to practice, however as an emerging social media assistant I'm becoming more fascinated and ever so see the need to put it all into practice. Seeing the line up already has me salivating!

I'm Irish so socializing comes fairly naturally to me, what doesn't come naturally to me is navigating the virtual jungle that is the internet. Help me socialize like i was born to, on all fronts in all networks

There once was a man born in Philly

Who thought blogging was rather silly

he moved to Sweden

And blogging he indeed did

And realized the learning curve was quite hilly
