Business Development Using Web 2.0 Tools

  • 17 Feb 2009
  • 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver, BC)

In a break from our Technology Legends theme, the VEF is presenting a panel discussion on using Social Networking tools for business development. The buzz around social networking technology is at an all-time high due to the popularity of consumer software and social networking services such as Facebook, MySpace, Plaxo, Jigsaw, Twitter and LinkedIn. Yet best practice social media strategies are not commonplace. How can these tools help companies? Is it good for generating leads or identifying channel partners to increase your sales? Can you transform your profile to attract highly targeted customers and/or recruit exceptional staff? Will it bring you closer to industry analysts or strategically expand your offline networking or investment opportunities?
