Take the Wheel and Drive Your Company's Social Media Strategy*
Wed - Jun, 12 | 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Location: Atlantic 1-2 (Level 2)
Category: Workshop | Secondary Category: Communications

While marketing and PR departments typically "own" social media, the challenge for IR departments is two-fold: 1) ensure that all activity is compliant with public company regulations and 2) ensure the messaging is consistent with the overall IR strategy.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn from an IRO whose IR program incorporates social media, a securities lawyer who will provide a legal perspective on policy development, and a representative from Wall Street who uses social media to gather information about companies his organization follows.
