Occasionally SMCFW brings in speakers who wield a certain degree of social media celebrity. Our recent event at Four Day Weekend was definitely one of those times, as it was hard to tell who people were more excited to see: our actual speaker, Elaine Kubrik, or her counterpart, a small plaster character who was all beard, blue shirt, and pointy red hat — affectionately known to all as Travelocity’s Roaming Gnome.
But the fact of the matter is that Elaine Kubrik, her team at Travelocity, and the Roaming Gnome are all one in the same.
Elaine joins us at the cusp of an industry social media case study. Not only will she discuss customer service in social media (along with crisis management), but she will also talk about general lessons learned, using the Roaming Gnome as an advantage, and ultimately how Travelocity plans to use social media as a long-term solution.
