Executives From Cisco, Coca-Cola, Corporate Executive Board And Edelman Digital Tackle What It Takes To Fulfill Brand Promise In The Age Of Social Media At DMA 2011

Stocks in this article: EXBD

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporate Executive Board (CEB) (NYSE: EXBD), a leading research and advisory services company, will convene a panel at the DMA 2011 Conference that addresses critical changes organizations must make in order to thrive in the age of social media.  Featuring new media experts from Coca-Cola, Cisco and Edelman Digital, the panel will explore the need for a new type of executive and the consequences if organizations maintain an outdated organizational structure.

WHAT Based on research issued by CEB and featured in Harvard Business Review, this session will explore the four hallmarks of successful social technology management with a special focus on one of those hallmarks: the new media Ringmaster.

Leading executives from Coca-Cola, Cisco and Edelman Digital will share the hard lessons they have learned as they've sought to increase their organization's new media IQ and how others can successfully catalyze change in marketing strategy and throughout the broader organization.  

WHEN Monday, Oct. 3rd 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

WHERE Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Boston, Mass.

WHY According to CEB's social media maturity survey administered to more than 500 organizations, only 10 percent of companies are seeing material business results from their social efforts.  To become and remain successful in the age of social and mobile technology, firms must develop and nurture a new set of skills and traits. The new media "Ringmaster" is critical to achieving results and fulfilling brand promise through high-speed decision making, integrative thinking and lean collaboration skills.

WHO Cisco, Jeannette Gibson, Social Marketing DirectorCoca-Cola Company, Michael Donnelly, Group Director, Global Communications Corporate Executive Board, Pat Spenner, Managing DirectorEdelman Digital (formerly Director of Social Media with H&R Block), Zena Weist, Vice President
