Already have plans for October? Join me in Austin for SXSW ECO!
I’m thrilled to share that my panel, “Sustainability Gets Social” has been accepted. I’m bringing together leaders in media and all-things digital to explore fast-evolving opportunities—and inherent risks—in social media trends and tools.
SXSW Eco is a three-day conference addressing the need for a concerted, cross sector approach to solving the recognized challenges facing the economy, the environment and civil society.
Hosting an international audience of on-the-ground innovators and executive level decision makers from the public and private sectors as well as thought leaders from academia, this event will drive the conversation of sustainability beyond rhetoric and towards solutions. SXSW Eco is for professionals at the forefront of the post-recognition discussion who are dedicated to making progress towards solving these challenges.
From popular consumer platforms to crowd sourcing to gamification, we will review best practices for engaging stakeholders both internally and externally, while touching on the business insights that user-driven data can deliver. Special focus will be placed on decisions around training and content development, business intelligence, crisis communications, and brand management.
I hope to see you there!
