Online registraton is now closed for this event.

Social media is no longer something "the kids" do. It’s part and parcel of 21st century communications.

Yet even today, many practitioners don't adequately harness the true power and promise of social technologies for their clients, still functioning in somewhat of a silo, instead of being Social PR Superheroes.

At this event, join Shonali Burke, ABC, an award-winning and globally-recognized Social PR strategist, teacher and trainer, to learn:

  • What true "Social PR" is and isn't, as she walks you through her 7C Social PR Framework;
  • How smart measurement does not have to break the bank and can help you deliver bottom line results for your clients and showcase them even more; and,
  • The secret sauce to building inspired communities of influence, which are at the core of successful Social PR.
