Dell's chief blogger, Lionel Menchaca
, will be the featured speaker at the May Third Monday social media meetup.
Lionel Menchaca has been at the heart of Dell's social media program. A 14-year Dell veteran, Lionel is the main blogger behind Direct2Dell
. Beyond the blog, he works to coordinate Dell's digital media activities. He says that, "These initiatives all have one thing in common: to provide Dell?s customers a way to interact or communicate feedback to the company."
Third Monday-ers will have a chance to hear Lionel talk about how Dell has embraced social media and engaged its community.
And there's a Canadian connection in Dell's social media program. Richard Binhammer, who once worked on Parliament Hill during the Mulroney years and subsequently joined Dell's PR agency and then Dell itself, has been a key member of the Dell blogger outreach program. Richard will be joining Lionel on his Canadian swing. We'll be counting on Richard to add his first hand perspective on blogger relations.
This is a great chance to hear from two of the people who have been at the heart of one of the highest profile and arguably one of the most successful corporate social media programs. RSVP
today to let us know that you'll be attending.
