Countdown is ON! Social Media Week Vancouver

In one month from today, Social Media Week will launch in Vancouver and in 12 other cities around the world!

When the President of my company Socialized! Ltd. Anthony Caridi (http://ca.linkedin.com/in/anthonycaridi ) announced we were taking on a little project, I had no way of knowing how much of an understatement that was going to be!

But AJ (Anthony prefers AJ ;) likes to do things BIG! So our little project of organizing 20+ free Summits, Mashups and Soirees, all taking place in 1 week beginning Monday September 19, has pretty much consumed our lives since then.

The thrill is we have the opportunity to highlight and celebrate some local Social success stories in multiple industries that you might not even have been aware of!

For instance, one of our rock star Advisory Board member Caroline Clapham has slotted a lunch and learn every day of the week in the Accountability Track at her law firm Fasken Martineu! EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK!

Accountability is a hot topic!
Does your company have a Social Media Policy?
Do you have an awesome Social Media idea but you want to protect it and wonder about copyright laws?
As an employer are you aware of your limitations of using Social Media in ‘hiring and firing’?

Caroline will be covering these timely topics and much more! (Check out the Accountability lunch and learn schedule: http://www.fasken.com/en/fasken-martineaus-accountability-summit-09-19-2011/)

One that I’m REALLY looking forward to is the Leading Women in Social Media Mashup hosted by Meena Sandu, Regional Manager Marketing and Sales at ING DIRECT on Tuesday afternoon at the ING DIRECT Cafe! There are some amazing women in this town using social in pretty creative ways.

The Real Estate Summit Thursday afternoon hosted by Stephen Jagger is a must attend for anyone in the Real Estate space including Brokers, Mortgage Brokers and Agents.  The Real Estate industry has been leading in SM and I’m looking forward to sharing best practices and more case studies.

The SOCIAL side of Social Media Week will be going down at some KILLER parties we have lined up! Stay tuned!!

As you can see...its all coming together! Keynotes/Venues and Sponsors are all coming on board and the schedule will be revamped and updated on the Social Media Week site very shortly!
