Back in January, Brian Solis and I joined forces with Social:IRL in Wichita, Kansas, to bring attendees a jam-packed day of social media learning with some interesting talks, discussions and workshop-type content. The event was called Explore and Engage. Thanks to Social:IRL organizer Ben Smith, we’re at it again on June 14, but this time in Denver, Colorado.
Explore and Engage is designed for those who are already using social media, and want to take their business or organization to the next level of engagement. The day begins with opening remarks from Brian, who will shine light on the importance of using social media to listen, lead, and engage with consumers. Then, we’ll move into a roll-up-your-sleeves workshop that will take you through the different tools, tactics, and strategies that help foster engagement between companies and customers. In addition to discovering these tools, we’ll also explore the back-end strategy of fostering social media success: measurement. Between workshops, you’ll have the opportunity to network and meet Brian and me. I’m guessing Brian will also be available to sign copies of his book, “Engage!” which is awfully good.
The event will take place at The Qwest Regional Call Center in Littleton, Colorado, just outside Denver. If you are one of the first 50 to register, you get a free copy of “Engage!” The cost of the day-long event is $245.00.
And just in case you need a bit more convincing, you can see more about the Wichita event on the Explore and Engage Resources page. We will certainly revise and update the information we’ll be sharing, but you can get a feel for the depth we’ll go into in Littleton.
And I’m happy to report it will be my first on-the-ground trip to Colorado. I connected in Denver once and dashed from one gate to another. This time, I get to leave the airport. So come see me! We’ll have a blast and learn a ton!
