Half-Day Program (08:30am - 12:00pm)

Sponsored by: Boston Search Group

Introduction:  Every few decades, advancements in technology and economics intersect with social and demographic changes to fundamentally alter how business is done and governments are run. One of those fundamental shifts is happening now:  1.5 billion people use social media and 3.5 billion use mobile phones. The Result: consumers, employees and investors are empowered to communicate, collaborate and do commerce whenever and with whomever they like.   At the same time, leading organizations of all sizes and industries are turning to these new technologies along with big data to create a new type of organization called a “social business". The problem is that few organizations, or their leaders, fully appreciate the transformation required to be ‘mobile and social first’ companies rather than traditional product and service organizations.

This half-day program will demonstrate the value of being a social business while also providing the 3 critical steps for success:

  1. How you can build a social network
  2. How your organization can harness mobile interactions
  3. How organizations benefit from big data

In summary, attendees will learn how to use today’s technologies to build social businesses that:

  • Inspire customers to be loyal marketers and co-creators
  • Engage employees to improve productivity and culture
  • Innovate to create new products and services.

Location: Bentley’s Center for Marketing Technology (CMT), 175 Forest Street, Waltham, MA - http://cmt.bentley.edu

This event is FREE. 

Parking: Free parking at Lot 7 and adjacent lots on Bentley's Upper Campus
