Podtech CEO to speak to social media meetup

Here's an update on the upcoming Third Thursday meetup I mentioned during yesterday's STEM meeting. Third Thursday focuses on the use of social media in marketing and PR.

The Topic: Social Media and the Pressroom of the Future
John Furrier, CEO of
Giovanni Rodriguez, Principal of HubbubPR
6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 17 in Palo Alto

The Blurb: With the arrival of social media, both media companies and businesses are rethinking the way they manage news-gathering and distribution. But how do businesses manage that well-known mainstay-- the "pressroom" at industry events and conferences? John Furrier, CEO of PodTech, will talk about how smart companies are reinventing the pressroom with state-of-the-art technologies, combined with social intelligence.

The Lowdown: Attendance is for this event limited by the size of the venue...and it's filling up fast. If you'd like to attend, please email me ASAP and I'll add you to the reservation list as my guest and fill you in on the locale. (Sorry, the group only makes that info available to members, and I want to respect their policy.)
