FIR Speakers and Speeches: Neville Hobson at Dell B2B Social Media Huddle

dellb2b92 The second Dell B2B Social Media Huddle (hashtag: #dellb2b) took place at Microsoft in London on May 25, 2010. The aim of the one-day event was to bring together senior in-house communications and marketing professionals to exchange and share experiences on business-to-business social media for mutual benefit.

Each of the presentations, and some of the unconference sessions, were live-broadcast via UStream (see the video recordings) and audio-recorded for FIR Speakers & Speeches podcasts.

In this FIR Speakers & Speeches podcast, FIR co-host Neville Hobson kicked off the event with an introductory presentation that addressed the big question: Why should you care about social media?
