FIR Speakers and Speeches: Dell’s Manish Mehta on social media measurement

delllogo1[1] Content summary: Manish Mehta, Dell’s VP of Social Media and Community, pinch-hit for Neville Hobson as the closing keynote speaker at New Communications Forum 2010. Neville was grounded in the UK by the volcanic ash cloud, so he recorded a video introduction of Mehta, who spoke about measuring social media to deliver business value.

A special thanks to Todd Van Hoosear for supplying the recording.
