Today I participated in the Social Communications & Healthcare conference in New York City. (PDF agenda here.) About 375 folks heard a series of case studies presented by social media leaders from within large corporations and from consultancies, followed by roundtable discussions on a variety of related topics. Many attendees were livetweeting the case studies portion of the event; these tweets are archived and presented here for your review. The case study presentations are also archived at Blog Talk Radio. I moderated two roundtable discussions titled: The Lawyers Don't Always Say No: Bringing Legal into Health Care Social Media Strategic Planning. I will post about those discussions soon.
It was a lively event with an energized crowd. As an added bonus, I had the opportunity to see, in real life, a number of folks from around the country with whom I generally interact on line.
Update 7/24/09: And speaking of online interaction, @andrewspong followed the tweets and broadcast from across the pond, participated in the twitter conversation, and posted his take on the top ten social media best practices discussed at the conference.
Update 7/26/09: See my post on the roundtable discussions I led on the subject of The Lawyers Don't Always Say No: Bringing Legal into Health Care Social Media Strategic Planning.
