Digital Directorship: Do YOU Need Digital Media Expertise?

Session Description:

More and more companies are integrating blogs, video streaming and mobile apps into their marketing and communications strategies. The rewards can be great, but so can the risks. Can your board claim to be a strategic asset if all its members are digital dinosaurs? This panel will take you into territory far beyond Facebook and Twitter, helping you discover a proliferation of tools that could boost or threaten your business — and your board seat.
