Are you overwhelmed with the social media frenzy that’s changing the way we see the world? Are you trying to figure out how to manage your life, business or career now that social networks have entered the picture? Do you want to make since out of it all?
Social Networking is quickly becoming a “must do” for business success in this climate. Small and large companies are now embracing multiple social tools for networking, communication, and business development. Network Solutions CEO, Roy Dunbar, suggests that businesses that use online and social networking tools perform 16% better than businesses that do not.
That is why E-Factor has put together the event: Live. Work. Play. Building Your Business, Life & Beyond on Social Networks.
It is happening on May 28th, 2009. Atlanta, GA from 6-10pm at the One Ninety One Club and our very own Shashi Bellamkonda will be the keynote speaker for the event. Here is the agenda and it looks to be awesome:
:: Live (6:00 – 7:30PM) is an networking reception featuring open bar, hors d’oeuvres, light background music and book signings by Brent Leary and David Bullock, Co-Authors of Barack 2.0: Social Media Lessons for Small Business.
:: Work (7:30 PM – 9:30 PM) will feature a keynote speaker, interactive moderated panel discussion (live twittinar and skypinar) and Q/A.
