Following our keynote address, we have invited panelists to interact with participants and speak to communication and social media issues in the workplace, such as using email or phone calls as opposed to face-to-face meetings, and the use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Our panelists presently include John Song, CEO of Lift9, a social media research firm; Dr. Chad Hattrup, Co-Founder of Pathwise, Leadership Development and Advising; and Kristyn Bonilla from The Boeing Company.
