SEPTEMBER 12, 2011 Social Media Across the Organization
I got a chance to speak Friday at a great event in Copenhagen along with speakers from Berlingske, Denmark’s national daily newspaper, and Facebook. My topic was how companies can use social media, not just for marketing, but across their entire organization.
