Unlike many social media seminars that simply help attendees set up a Facebook page or a Twitter account, Social Media for Executives presented by Filtrbox has brought together many of the nation’s leading social media experts, each with a specific focus in a key management area — from communications to customer service to human resources — to provide a strategic overview of emerging best practices and strategic management of this important new area.

The event will be co-hosted by Dave Taylor, who manages three blogs, including the popular Ask Dave Taylor blog and is a national keynote speaker on a variety of technology and social media topics, and Doyle Albee, president and Social Media Practice director at Metzger Associates, a leading national communications, public relations and social media consultancy.

The day’s speaker line-up includes:

Paula Berg, manager of Emerging Media for Southwest Airlines.

Jessica Berlin, Social Media manager for the Resident Shows Division of Cirque du Soleil.

Deirdre Breakenridge, a 20-year PR and marketing veteran and the author of four books.

Ari Newman, president and founder of Filtrbox.

Linda O’Neill, general manager for Customer Operations for EMBARQ.

Liz Ryan a former Fortune 500 human resources executive and the author of Happy About Online Networking: The Virtual-ly Simple Way to Build Professional Relationships.

“Our goal is to present a conference to truly help senior-level executives understand how social media has the potential to impact nearly every area in any company and to discuss the strategies and emerging best practices with industry leaders and their peers,” said Dave Taylor, one of the conference hosts.
