Jeremiah Owyang (http://twitter.com/jowyang) is an Analyst at the Altimeter Group (http://www.altimetergroup.com/), whose other principals include founder Charlene Li (http://twitter.com/charleneli) and Brian Solis (http://twitter.com/briansolis). You won't find a smarter, more social media-savvy group of people anywhere.
Altimeter's research is widely read and frequently cited as a source of actionable insight into how social media is being integrated into the enterprise and the best practices that are emerging. Jeremiah regularly posts about the research on his Web Strategy (http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/) blog, speaks at conferences (http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/speaking/) and publishes his presentations on SlideShare (http://www.slideshare.net/jeremiah_owyang/). A sample of his writing and presentations gives a sense of the range and depth of Jeremiah's thinking:
Social Business Readiness (http://www.altimetergroup.com/research/reports/social-business-readiness) A Strategy for Managing Social Media Proliferation (http://www.altimetergroup.com/2012/01/buyers-guide-a-strategy-for-managing-social-media-proliferation-altimeter-report.html) Social Business Readiness: How Advanced Companies Prepare Internally (http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/2011/08/31/report-social-media-crises-on-rise-be-prepared-by-climbing-the-social-business-hierarchy-of-needs/) How Corporations Should Prioritize Social Business Budgets (http://www.altimetergroup.com/research/reports/how-corporations-should-prioritize-social-business-budgets) An Investment Roadmap for Social Business Buyers (http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/2011/02/10/spend-wisely-finally-an-investment-roadmap-for-social-business-buyers-altimeter-report/) When the Corporate Social Strategist Role Goes Away (http://www.web-strategist.com/blog/2011/11/13/when-the-corporate-social-strategist-role-goes-away/) That's deep knowledge - shared generously with others who share Jeremiah's interests.
And now Jeremiah is coming to Toronto share his most recent insights with the Third Tuesday community. And that can include you. If you're interested in hearing and talking with Jeremiah Owyang, register online to attend the next Third Tuesday Toronto. I hope to see you there.
Thank you to our sponsors
As you know, Third Tuesday is a community-oriented, volunteer-driven event. And we wouldn’t be able to bring great speakers like Jeremiah Owyang to Third Tuesdays across the country without the support of some like-minded sponsors. We’ve been lucky to have some great companies step up over the past several years to help us make Third Tuesday happen. Big thanks are due to CNW Group (http://newswire.ca/), Rogers Communications (http://rogers.com/), the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (http://www.cira.ca/), Radian6 (http://www.radian6.com/) and Cision Canada (http://www.ca.cision.com/) for making the 2011/12 Third Tuesday season possible.
We want students to be able to attend
Third Tuesday is a great opportunity to hear about the latest developments in social media and to network with business and thought leaders. And we don't want students to miss out on this opportunity. So, if you are a student and would like to attend, don't let the admission fee stop you. Simply present your student ID card at the time you sign into Third Tuesday and we'll refund your admission fee, courtesy of Thornley Fallis (http://www.thornleyfallis.com/).
