Austin 2 Boston
Austin 2 Boston: Sharing Lessons from SXSWi
Fleishman-Hillard - along with MITX - is keeping the SXSW spirit alive in Boston.
"Austin 2 Boston: Sharing Lessons from SXSWi," is a happy hour event designed to bring together Boston area social media, marketing and communications pros who were either in Austin for SXSWi or wished they could have gone. For both groups, this event offers the opportunity to learn cool things and connect with peers.
Presentations will be fast-moving. A range of high-profile local speakers will be on hand and their 3-4 minute presentations will follow a common format: one mega takeaway from this year's SXSW; 3-4 smaller, but still important takeaways; and best of all, how they plan to integrate these new ideas into their work this year.
The lineup of speakers will include:
Carissa Caramanis O'Brien: Leads Red Box Communications and also a VP at the ProMed Network
Joe Chernov: VP of content marketing for marketing automation SAAS company, Eloqua. Co-chair, Word of Mouth Marketing Association's ethics panel.
Laura "@Pistachio" Fitton, CEO/Founder www.oneforty.com
Seth Bloom, SVP and Partner, Fleishman-Hillard Boston
Steve Garfield, Author: Get Seen, Online Video Secrets; Founder: Boston Media Makers; Investor; Host: SteveGarfield.tv on The Pulse Network. www.stevegarfield.com
Tyson Goodridge, Principle of Dialogue, Social Media Education and Advisory Services Firm
Before and after the presentations, we'll enjoy networking SXSW-style (i.e. food and drinks).
