    I found this meeting to be very informational. I was especially curious about Twitter as I was not a user. I started to work my way around the site yesterday and now I'm captivated. Thank you panelist, you all did a great job!

  • katja schroeder

    Great presenters, great recommendations that you can take and apply to your own business.

  • Mary Lou Floyd

    Dividing the speakers up by social network (LinkedIn, Twitter, FB) worked. The three presentations were well organized and real practical information was delivered.

  • Sheri Greenhaus +1

    The presenters were good- but I need a more advanced panel

  • Josh Gordesky

    Very useful information on the top three social media outlets. They provided practical tips that I can use right away.

  • Hussein Nouri

    The organizer and panel was very organized and remained on track with the meeting agenda while also attempting to answer some slightly off topic questions.

  • Pauline Kehm

    This was an excellent presentation. The three principal speakers knew their stuff and presented organized steps to maximize the social media platforms. Andrew moderated well and added his expertise. Well worth the time and $.
