Community & Social Media Program - Phila. 9/22/08 - Jayne Navarre

If you're going to be in or around Philadelphia on September 22nd, please join us for "Community and Social Media—Use It or Lose" featuring Jayne Navarre, Managing Director of
LawGravity LLC. Jayne is a social media guru and will have lots of information to share.

The Program:

Law firms and businesses impacted by the media, who rely on the media to get their message out, or who drive the media—that is, most everyone—can capitalize on social computing to gain new business, clients and connections. Or they can resist change, miss opportunities and get left behind.

For those new to community and social media and its powerful potential in building relationships, this presentation will give you basic background. For those who’ve already tested or plunged into the social computing waters, you may find Ms. Navarre’s prospective as a veteran in-house legal marketer and Web strategist helpful in adding new ideas to your social-networking tool kit.

Although social computing will not likely replace in whole face-to-face networking and transactions, it’s a potent force here to stay for the foreseeable future. Social computing in its many forms helps flatten the world, crossing geographic and cultural and organizational borders—and at low cost.

Bottom line: The rapid growth of social computing is changing the way public relations practitioners, marketers and advertisers help businesses succeed. As a result, lawyers and those in the legal industry need to understand how social computing is impacting not only their own profession but also the success of their clients and their businesses.

Key questions this presentation addresses include:
-How quickly must I adapt or lose ground?
-What types of relationships are effectively built using community and social media tools?
-How do all the pieces fit together?
-What are special concerns for the legal industry?
-How do you know which tools to use when?
-When should I blog, tweet or send e-mail?
-How will the semantic Web move things forward?
