Welcome to an incredible series of conversations with heads of social media at the world’s biggest companies.
Exclusively for social media leaders at major companies. No vendors, no selling. (Yes, really.)
This is the meeting for people leading the programs. Everyone in the room will be a senior decision maker. You’ll be talking with people who actually run their program, with experience and knowledge to share.
You’ll have leadership conversations you can’t experience anywhere else.
We talk about the things that keep you up at night: internal management issues, vendors, unprecedented topics, crisis response, and leadership strategies.
(We don’t cover the topics you get from other sources — the tactical or basic “how-to” concepts.)
Everything is facilitated and peer-to-peer.
That means better conversations and more meaningful connections. The people at this meeting have been there, done that, and are willing to share the real stories of what worked and what didn’t.
You won’t hear canned presentations, vendor pitches, or polished stuff for the stage. The conversations at this meeting are much more valuable.
Leave inspired, energized, and better prepared to lead your program.
What’s special about Board Meetings
1. Conversations that Matter
We’ll talk about the important issues that you’re facing as a social media leader. Bring the tough problems you’re trying to solve and the questions you can’t ask anywhere else.
2. Confidential, Off the Record, and Members Only
No vendors, no agencies, and no sponsors. Every conversation is completely confidential (no recording, blogging, etc.), and every participant is a social media leader at a major brand.
3. It’s Not a Conference, It’s a Discussion
Board Meetings are designed for high-value conversations that will help you be a better social media leader. There are no panels, keynotes, sponsors, or other distractions.
What’s Happening at This Board Meeting
We’ll have four kinds of incredible conversations:
Member-chosen, member-led peer-to-peer discussions on the hottest issues of the moment.
Show & Tells
Members share what they’re working on in casual, behind-the-scenes talks.
Deep-dive conversations on pre-selected topics from your fellow members.
Meals aren’t just breaks — they’re formal parts of the program where some of the best conversations happen.
Who can attend
1. Registration is Not Open to the Public
This meeting is private, off-the-record, and exclusively for social media leaders at major brands. All registrations are reviewed, and everyone will have signed a confidentiality agreement.
2. Tuesday is Members and Invited Guests Only
The first day is off the record, but some prospective members will be joining us. They’ll leave when our private member dinner starts that evening.
3. Wednesday is Members Only
Everyone in the room will be a SocialMedia.org member. Members, if you’re hoping to send someone that isn’t on your roster yet, they need to be approved at least two weeks before the meeting. Your friendly Community Manager can help.
