Help Guide the Discussion at Our December SMCKC Pro Lunch!
By now, we hope you've heard about this new SMCKC Pro Lunch thing. It's a series of high-level, value-packed discussions with people who are using social media to do amazing things in the world and in their careers.
At our inaugural November lunch (photo above), intellectual property lawyer Cheryl Burbach gave us practical, actionable advice on avoiding the pitfalls of copyright infringement and IP law in using social media for business. (Grab the SlideShare of Cheryl's awesome presentation.)
For our Dec. 13 Pro Lunch featuring social heavyweights Zena Weist and Ben Smith, we want things to get interactive. And we want YOU to help our speakers be as relevant as possible.
Here's the deal:
In a fireside chat format over lunch in the Majestic Restaurant's Jazz Club, Ben Smith, founder of Social IRL, will interview Zena Weist, VP Strategy at Expion. Zena brings almost 20 years of digital experience to the chat. For the past five years, she has been talking on the national conference circuit about operationalizing social media in large enterprises, and prior to that she was speaking about online brand reputation management, online communications, internet marketing and integrating digital into traditional advertising.
There's a lot of topics they will cover, including: Kansas City and reducing the fly over syndrome; thriving as a working parent in a 24/7/365 industry; weak and strong links that virtually bond; and social media integration from Zena's unique vantage point with leadership roles in B2C, agency and B2B.
Ben and Zena want the content to be tailor-made for the SMCKC Pro members. In fact, we want to make sure we are including the questions or themes you are looking for Zena and Ben to address.
You can submit questions or topics to Ben prior to the lunch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet them to him @benasmith. In true social media crowd-sourced fashion, Ben will use as many of your questions as he can fit into his interview framework.
Bottom line: the take-away potential of this event is enormous. And it's limited only by the questions you submit!
