Social Relationship Management and Global Brands

As corporate social media management matures, brands are taking their social media efforts to a new level while experimenting with different structures, processes and strategies.The fast pace and new threats posed by social media have created challenges when it comes to managing the madness. This has led to tug-of-wars across product teams, departments, regions and partners such as agencies. Empowered consumers, new technology, C-suite pressure, the proliferation of channels, and global/local sensitivities are adding to the complexity; forcing the enterprise ecosystem to adapt. It's time for brands to have a social relationship roadmap.
The panel will share insights from first-hand experience at brands like Blackberry, Dell, Citi, and Samsung on:
1) how to align strategy with business goals
2) why scaling globally also means optimizing locally
3) how to integrate social media insights across the organization
4) how social media management has evolved and will continue to evolve
