The Impact of Social Media on the Consulting Profession

Live Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 1:00 pm (ET)

The enterprise social platforms market, which represents one of many components of corporate social media spending, is expected to top $2 billion by 2014, according to a recent survey.* This is good news for consulting firms.

Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn started out as simple platforms for like-minded groups of people to communicate and share ideas. Today, these same social networking sites are translating into big business for companies looking to reach targeted clients and customers.

In order to increase their business through social media, companies need to make sweeping internal changes to their existing processes, systems integration, and organizational change management. How can consultants create a thriving social media practice that generates significant revenue for clients?

With that in mind, plan now to join us and uncover answers to such critical questions as:
