There are plenty of social media
conferences to choose from.

is different – and better.
A bold promise. But one that is made from a position of strength.
Too many events in this area are dominated by self-styled social
media ‘gurus’ who pontificate on ‘social media issues’ in broad
terms that are of little or no relevance to a corporate audience.
While others are thinly disguised vendor pitches. If you’re unlucky,
you’ll get a combination of both.

By contrast, the Corporate Social Media Summit is focused
on your day-to-day business concerns and nothing else.
Take a look at the agenda to see what we mean.
