November 7: 'Mining Social' Webinar Discloses What Senior IROs Think About Social Media

Social media continues to be one of the hottest topics of discussion at IR gatherings. What do investor relations officers really think about social media and how are they using it? On November 7, IR Magazine and Marketwired present “Mining Social: How IROs, investors and analysts are using social media for market intelligence.”

This webinar distills the intense discussions about social media and IR that have taken place at recent invitation-only IR Magazine Think Tanks across the United States and Canada. These closed-door forums give attendees, including heads of IR, corporate secretaries and general counsel an unbridled opportunity to express their thoughts in an atmosphere that guarantees anonymity. 

Featuring panelists Neil Stewart, Editorial and Research Director at IR Magazine, RJ Jones, Investor Relations Officer at Zillow and Kurt Heinemann, Chief Marketing Officer at Marketwired, the webinar includes a strategic overview and provides:

  • Insight into how senior IR executives view the changing role of social media
  • Real-life examples of how public companies are using social media for IR
  • Tips for incorporating social media intelligence in your own organization
