FIR Interview: Allan Schoenberg on Social Media and CME Group at #b2bhuddle

Allan Schoenberg

With social media so prolific, are B2B companies taking advantage of all that exists? That question formed a foundation for the keynote presentation by Allan Schoenberg, Executive Director of Corporate Communications for CME Group, at The B2B Huddle on May 2, 2013, held at Oracle’s UK headquarters in Reading.

During a break at the event after the presentation, FIR co-host Neville Hobson spoke with Allan to capture his thoughts on topics from his keynote including what makes CME employees feel comfortable and confident with social media, and further insights into CME’s employee use of social media.
