Innovation and Social Media:
Developing a Customized Strategy for Success

In this challenging economic time, many companies are developing or revisiting their innovation strategies. Many companies and brands are also experimenting with and embracing social media. This workshop will help you identify important elements of a social media strategy and how it can play a key role in your innovation strategy. Gain an understanding of the steps your company can take to develop a strategy for success:

  • Find out how your company’s innovation capabilities compare with other companies through social media

  • Opportunity to share insights and experiences with other top leaders

  • Learn from thought leaders about what works and doesn’t work in their social media efforts

  • Write your own social media strategy

How can we effectively use social media tools to reach our audiences and improve our innovation? Various strategy options will be brought to life through presentations, facilitated discussions and case study examinations on companies like IBM, Sony, and Kraft.
