For those of us interested in social media, it's about finding a community of peers, making connections, learning from and supporting each other.

This month's speaker is Rob Lane, CEO and Co-founder of Overlay.TV.
Rob's main responsibilities include being Overlay's chief evangelist and community listener. With this input, Rob sets Overlay's direction and creates an environment where the team can excel in the ever-changing space of video commerce and interactions.
A marketer at heart, Rob has built and led teams at both start-ups and blue chip tech companies in Europe and North America.
What's Rob going to talk about?
Rob will cover two main topics:
The first will focus on video as a social utility using case studies from Overlay's client base. The discussion will illustrate examples ranging from large agencies such as JWT to individual UGC producers at the other.
The second part of the discussion will focus on how Overlay is using social media to build its community and business.

SMBOttawa has been organized and hosted by Simon Chen, Rob Lane and Ryan Anderson since 2008. SMBOttawa's breakfast networking events are inspired and have evolved from the Social Media Breakfast concept started by Bryan Person in Boston:
". . . as an almost-monthly event where social media experts and newbies alike come together to eat, meet, share, and learn. Marketers, PR pros, entrepreneurs, bloggers, podcasters, new media fanatics, and online social networkers are all welcome to attend."
