Connect with Hearsay Social at leading conferences around the world

Hearsay Social CTO Steve Garrity speaking at InformationWeek 500

Social media may be all about connecting in the online world, but we at Hearsay Social know very well the value of face-to-face conversations. For that reason, we regularly speak at fantastic conferences and events all around the country. It’s always an honor to share our ideas with other industry-leading experts to help companies understand how social sales and marketing can help them engage with customers on social media.
Here’s a sampling of upcoming events where you can connect with us:
This morning at 8:30 AM, Hearsay Social CTO and co-founder Steve Garrity will deliver a session at E2 Innovate in Santa Clara entitled How to Match Speeds Between Your Enterprise and the Social Networks. The APIs for social sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google+ change rapidly, often leaving IT departments reeling. In his session, Steve will explain how companies and their beleaguered IT departments can navigate and become insulated from rapid network API changes.
Later this month, on Monday, November 26th, Mark Tamis (Head of Customer Success, EMEA, Hearsay Social) will be on a panel at iStrategy London titled “From Digital Teams to Digital Businesses”. Mark and fellow panelists will discuss the importance of businesses expanding social and digital outreach from small marketing teams to an organization-wide focus. They will highlight what is required to generate, curate, and nurture a social presence, and what steps companies need to take to ensure success.
In early December, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be participating on the Social Business Track at LeWeb Paris. Additionally, Mark Gilbert, VP of Product at Hearsay Social, will be speaking on “Social Business Innovators” at Interactive Local Media (ILM) West on December 5. Finally, at the Gramercy Institute’s ninth annual JFAM Financial Marketers’ Summit: WEST on December 5 – 7 in San Francisco, a hand-picked Hearsay Social executive will join fifty senior marketing leaders (mostly from major financial firms) to present on the state of social media as it relates to financial services

Celebrating Hearsay Social momentum

We’re two weeks away from the beginning of the new year, two months away from the first anniversary of Hearsay Social’s launch, and today I am excited to share several milestones  that highlight our astounding customer momentum.
Since our company launch 10 months ago, we’ve powered more than five million social media interactions between businesses and consumers over 16,000 social profiles and pages. The vision my co-founder Steve Garrity and I began working on three years ago has evolved into a thriving company that serves the world’s most prominent companies in the financial services, insurance, retail, restaurants, automotive, real estate, and direct selling industries.
We’re also growing our first-rate leadership team by bringing on Rob van Es as VP of Global Sales and Amy Millard as VP of Marketing, two of the most sought-after sales and marketing leaders in Silicon Valley.  Both Rob and Amy have decades of experience, respectively, at high-profile businesses like Fortify Software (acquired by HP in 2010) and Netscape.
Our continued product innovation includes recently launching as one of Google+’s first brand page partners, making Hearsay Social the only enterprise social marketing platform with full integration across every major social network. We continue to push the envelope on what’s possible for the social enterprise, as we have been from day one.
Last, some personal news.  Starbucks announced today that it has named me to their Board of Directors. I am incredibly humbled to be joining a diverse board that includes Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, J.C. Penney CEO Myron Ullman, III, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
Not just a top global brand respected for its ethically sourced, high-quality coffee, Starbucks has also emerged as a distinguished social media innovator in the retail industry. Joining the company’s already strong board, I hope to help guide Starbucks toward further successes in the social media sphere.
All in all, 2011 has been an amazing year for Hearsay Social. With the help of Steve and our unbeatable team in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago, Hearsay Social will only drive for bigger and better accomplishments in the coming year.
Continuous product innovation, evolving thought leadership, and endless dedication to our customers’ success–that’s the game plan for Hearsay Social, still the only provider of enterprise-class social marketing.
