Julie joined leading content and social media company Demand Media in May 2011 after nearly nine years at interactive entertainment company, THQ Inc., where she was vice president of investor relations and corporate communications. Prior to joining THQ, Julie was a vice president with PondelWilkinson Inc., a Los Angeles based corporate and investor relations consulting firm.

She is currently president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute and was nominated for “Best Investor Relations Officer – Small Cap” by the 2011 IR Magazine Awards.
Chris here. I’m moderating and I’ll be putting our speakers to the test. I work as a social media manager in a regulated industry, so they can’t bullsh#t me. I know what we can and can’t do. (At least in a financial services capacity.)
Julie comes in with investor relations experience. With startups and established companies going IPO, there are just some sacred things you shouldn’t be tweeting about… ever… especially if the SEC is going to be looking at you. I’m sure Julie will be coming in with some tips on how to rein in employees who tweet on their own as well tips on how to share news via social media without getting dinged.
If you work in a public company and want to get started with social media, or you’re looking for best practices in doing social media in regulated industries, this event is for you! Be sure to RSVP today as we will sell out!
