Dachis Group will be concluding its 2012 Social Business Summit (SBS) Series with a final event scheduled for September 12 in New York City. The series is designed to educate, inspire, and otherwise evangelize the good news about Social Business worldwide. Sponsored by IBM, the series provides a series of leading practitioners and thought leaders who provide unique views on their experiences and insights on where the social phenomenon is today and where it is headed. The day will feature in-depth TED-style talks that will cover how the social phenomenon is changing the landscape for commerce worldwide. Special emphasis will be placed on the growing role big data and social analytics play in providing the measurement needed for brands to compete in an increasingly open marketplace.
The NYC event will be held at the popular trendy Three Sixty° at Tribeca Rooftop. Speakers include longtime friend of Dachis Group, Daniel Debow, VP Salesforce Rypple; as well as Perry Hewitt, Harvard University, Chief Digital Officer; Social Business Council member Tiffany LaBanca, News Corporation Senior Vice President, Internal Communications; and Melva Benoit, Fox Broadcasting Company and MundoFox, Senior VP, Analytics Innovation Research and Strategy. Of course, an Armada of Dachis Group luminaries including Jeff Dachis, Erik Huddleston, Dave Gray, Dion Hinchcliffe, and Lee Bryant will be presenting as well, along with IBM’s Matt Collins, Vice President Marketing, Collaboration Solutions and Social Business.
If you’ve not made it to one of the prior SBS events, get your request in. Other events have overbooked early, and we expect the Manhattan event to sell out early. These events are a nice combination of formal presentation and informal casual conversation and mingling among social business friends and fans. Hope to see you there.
