SMCKC Happy Hour with the Nelson Atkins' Young Friends of the Art!
- Community & Culture
- The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City MO
Come sit in on an intimate virtual conversation with best-selling author, blogger, speaker, and social thinker Brian Solis.
Some of you have read Solis' earth-moving books Engage and The End of Business as Usual. Others have been lucky enough to see Solis speak (such as his recent keynote at Social: IRL in Des Moines). Now, you'll get the chance to engage in dialogue with one of the world's leading new media prophets.
Live and in the pixel, Solis will beam into the Google Fiber Space to chat with @SMCKC at our January 4, 2013, breakfast.
Best of all, you can have a voice in the discussion! There will be ample opportunity to ask questions live, but if there's any topics you especially want Solis to address, please email your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to generous sponsorship by H&R Block, complimentary copies of Solis' most recent book, The End of Business as Usual, will be given to the first 100 attendees who register on Eventbrite (must be present to collect book).
A breakfast buffet and copious amounts of coffee will be provided by Google Fiber to all attendees.
Solis is principal at Altimeter Group, a research-based advisory firm. Solis is globally recognized as one of the most prominent thought leaders and published authors in new media. A digital analyst, sociologist, and futurist, Solis has studied and influenced the effects of emerging media on business, marketing, publishing, and culture.
His latest book, The End Of Business As Usual, looks at the changing consumer landscape, it's impact on business & what companies can do to adapt & lead. Solis' previous book, Engage, is regarded as the industry reference guide to build and measure success in the social web. His next book, What’s the Future of Business will be released this spring. It explains why experience is everything and how the future of business will come down to shared experiences.
