Atlanta business communicators group to host panel on blogging

August 24, 2007

Last year our STC chapter worked with our counterparts at the local chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) to host a panel on blogging. It was a great success.

On Tuesday, August 28 (sorry for the short notice!) the Atlanta IABC is holding another program on the same topic with different panelists: “Social Media: It’s new. It’s hip. But will it work for you?”

One of the panelists is Marilynn Mobley for the Edelman PR firm. Marilynn has two blogs: Baby Boomer Insights and Remain Relevant in Changing Times.

IABC’s meetings are held at Maggiano’s in Buckhead. Your registration fee includes lunch.  

I will be conducting training at work that day and can’t attend. If any of you Atlanta STCers are able to go, please let them know that you are from the STC and you heard about it here!

Speaking of blogging, I wanted to point you to a couple of McKinsey reports on the subject of how Web 2.0 collaboration tools are being accepted in the workplace. In March, they published a survey on how businesses are using Web 2.0. This week, another report came out on “How companies can make the most of user-generated content.”

Tuesday evening is our STC Happy Hour in Norcross at Paizano’s from 6 to 7 pm.
