Second Social Media Summit: Learn, Mingle and Play #ragancisco

I am looking forward to the second Social Media Summit, not just as a host but as a practitioner. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and connecting with old friends. I’m excited to be partnering with Ragan Communications again this year on 3 days of learning, fun and sharing.

If you’re like me and want to stay on top of social media best practices, then get your fix on May 4 -6 on how to engage employees, build strong customer relationships and create brand buzz online. You can start the conversation now by letting us know which sessions you’re looking forward to most and why. Just remember to use the #ragancisco hash tag on Twitter. Even better, show your support for our presenters by checking in to our Cisco Mobile Application for a chance to win some really cool prizes:
