Cisco WebEx won the Green IT Summit 2012 award for the best telework and teleconferencing solution.
WebEx video conferencing is green IT because it reduces travel for people who typically attend meetings in person. Using WebEx allows virtual teams to easily collaborate with distant colleagues and clients. Of course it also saves time and money.
The Green IT Summit is a yearly event held in the Washington D.C. area around Earth Day.

It’s easy to target your reach and control your spend.
Twitter is a great channel for driving pre and post event traffic to your site: ahead of time for registration and afterward for the recording. But Twitter is also an excellent way to engage folks during your meeting. By creating a “back-channel” conversation, you can get feedback and ideas from participants who may be too shy to speak up during the meeting. You can also grab great sound bites during the meeting and tweet them so others will be drawn to your content. Use hashtags to extend your reach.
Publicize your events on LinkedIn to attract a business following. Make sure your company page is up to date and turn on the status updates feature that works very much like Facebook. You can also create a LinkedIn group to create a special interest Read More »
