Social Media in the Real World by Kelly Dempski

Kelly Dempski, Director of Accenture Technology Labs in Silicon Valley, has spent the last several years promoting social media to a wide range of clients in both the US and Europe. He has had the opportunity to speak to a spectrum of business leaders, ranging from Swiss bankers to Silicon Valley start-ups. In this presentation, Kelly will share some of the lessons learned along the way, and give real world examples of how different industries and geographies view the opportunities and risks of social media. Some of the themes we’ll explore will include data privacy, the applicability and timeliness of social media to different industries, social media for B2B, the difference between perceived and actual risks, and how much anyone actually controls their brand.

    Kelly gave some great insight into how social media is used correctly and incorrectly in the real world. He taught me some things that I should avoid doing.

    Kelly is a great speaker who provided real examples to bring out the nuances of using Social media correctly/incorrectly in the enterprise. The customer segmentation is an important topic that will provide vertical differentiation for products. A possible future topic on how to analyze the trustworthiness of the user reviews and comments. His take on 'sentiment analysis' and alternate ways to achieve that was thought provoking as well. Great talk and great speaker.
