Some of you may already know that I am the Social Media Director for this exciting conference. So what does that mean? It means I get to have fun promoting all the great people, brands, sessions and events that will make up the 2015 BConnected Conference. Let me tell you…it’s shaping up to be amazing, and we all know that’s it not a tough job to promote something this good!
Hot on the heels of his fabulous presentations at last year’s BConnected Conference, Triberr founder, Dino Dogan, will be back to provide us with even more of his fantastic social media wisdom!
