PRSA’s Digital impact conference is happening in New York April 2 and 3 and we’re pleased to announce Inside PR is the official podcaster.
Martin talked with Eric Schwartzman, digital marketing consultant, entrepreneur, author, podcaster and founder/co-chair of Digital Impact about this year’s program. Now in its fourth year, the sold-out event is designed for PR professionals, marketing communicators, speechwriters and even entrepreneurs who are trying to integrate social into their strategy. Its focus is earned media through social communications and it’s tailored to the PR community.
This year’s keynote lineup features:
- Caryn Marooney, vice president technology innovations, Facebook, talking about How to Thrive in a Connected World.
- Matthias Lufkens – chief communications person for the World Economic Forum in Davos, speaking about the Role of the Social Media Architect.
- Timothy Jordan – one of the key developer advocates for Google+ presenting the business case for having a Google+ page.
- Richard Binhammer – Dell’s director of social media and community discussing how to build in social networking across an entire enterprise and connecting employees to customers.
Other sessions include a panel on PR and Wikipedia and whether or not PR people should be allowed to make changes on pages they manage; a communications professor talking about copyright, trademark and what you are and aren’t allowed to share; and several sessions on understanding influence, which tie directly into this year’s theme, ‘Influence and Persuasion’.
