CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2012) - The Calgary Social Media Breakfast (SMBYYC) is pleased to announce Jaime Stein as this month's guest speaker.
The topic for the June SMBYYC is:
Building a community of brand advocates without blowing your budget
Drawing on his experience as head of social media for a professional sports league and now for a major financial institution, Jaime Stein will lead you through a series of cases that demonstrate why it takes more than just money and technology to build a community of brand ambassadors. From how a simple aggregator of social content - the CFL.ca Online Water Cooler - became a fan favourite feature to learning how ING DIRECT used a select group of Clients to shape its unique THRiVE chequing account, Jaime will show you how simple forms of engagement can lead to the creation of loyal communities. Following the session, he will answer your questions in an interactive Q&A.
To experience a live ING DIRECT community building event, take part in the 3 Things For Calgary event on Thursday, June 21stat the ING DIRECT Calgary Cafe. Inspired by '3 Things for Calgary', ING DIRECT is welcoming social media buffs and community engagers to its first ever Meet and Tweet event in Calgary.
