With fall in full swing, our schedule is packed with events around the country where we hope to meet you face to face!
The Hearsay Social team is thrilled to take our vision for social business on a global tour this fall. From NACD, Fortune, and Women on Wall Street to SIFMA Social, LIMRA Annual, Dreamforce, and American Banker, we will be coming to a city near you to share best practices, case studies, and thought leadership around the future of selling.
Here are three events this week where our CEO Clara Shih will be headlining sessions:
Clara kicks off the tour this week at the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) Board Leadership Conference, to be held in the Washington, D.C. area. Clara, who is also on the board of Starbucks, is speaking alongside directors from Allianz Global Investors Mutual Funds, Mutual of Omaha, Coca-Cola, JetBlue and many others, as well as Mary Jo White, Chair of the SEC.
Clara and fellow panelists will be leading a session called “Social Media Strategy: The Board’s Role,” on Monday, October 14th. They will discuss how social media has provided companies with a unique platform to listen and communicate with their clients, employees, fans, and critics.
At Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, D.C., Clara will participate on a panel, “Leadership: Lessons from Under-40 Influentials,” to discuss “power, ambition and the next generation of leadership,” on Wednesday, October 16th.
Other speakers at the event include Warren Buffett (Chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Inc.), Mary Callahan Erdoes (CEO, J.P. Morgan Asset Management); Carolyn Everson (VP, Global Marketing Solutions, Facebook), Marissa Mayer (President and CEO, Yahoo!), and Sheryl Sandberg (COO, Facebook).
At Deutsche Bank’s 19th Annual Women on Wall Street Conference, Clara will join other high profile female leaders, including Vicki Fuller (Chief Investment Officer, New York State Common Retirement Fund), Sallie Krawcheck (Owner, 85 Broads), and Mary Schapiro (Managing Director and Chairman of the Governance and Markets Practice, Promontory Financial), to talk about how they have “defied conventional wisdom, taken risks, and cultivated success.”
Additionally, on October 16th, Kristin Shevis, head of sales, Eastern U.S. for Hearsay Social, will participate on a panel, “A Conversation With Social Media Leaders,” at the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) Social Media Seminar in New York. Panelists will explore the role of social media in the financial services industry. Other speakers at the event include executives from LinkedIn, Twitter, FINRA, SIFMA, and top financial firms.
