Webster University’s Walker Speaker Series to Host Panel Discussion on Business Use of Social Media
Social media is about building relationships, something businesses need to survive. But simply setting up exposure on Facebook or sending tweets on Twitter won’t guarantee success to a company’s bottom line or personal brand.
Webster University’s Walker Speaker Series will host a panel discussion on best practices for business use of social media, examining the right tools, motives and plans.
The event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010, in the University Center’s Sunnen Lounge, 175 Edgar Rd. The program begins at 7:30 a.m. with a networking breakfast, followed by the panel discussion at 8 a.m. Free parking is available in Webster’s Garden Park Garage at 554 Garden Ave. The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are encouraged. To RSVP, go to http://www.webster.edu/wsbt/speakers. The event also will be live streamed at www.webster.edu/live.
Panel discussion participants include:
Chris Reimer, owner of Rizzo Tees and chief marketing officer for The Scorch Agency
Kathleen Manning, media specialist, Monsanto Co.
Amber Talbot, social media marketing supervisor, Scottrade
Dave Collett, senior vice president and global CLR, Weber Shandwick
Dr. Benjamin, dean of the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology at Webster University, will moderate the discussion.
