Panel description: The world is getting smaller, which means your public footprint needs to be bigger. Professionals who want to thrive and keep ahead of the curve need to engage worldwide. This is where technology and social media come in. The Internet is the great equalizer; it allows access for the little guy (or girl) that would not have been possible in the past. Our panel of marketing and social media experts, who hail from blue chip corporations and global advertising agencies, will share valuable insight for professionals and small business owners on how to go to the next level, and go worldwide.
“I’m looking forward to attending the conference, its been a goal of mine to get here and experience it. Commented Murray, “I’m excited about the panel and the discussion about the endless possibilities of social media.”
Mr. Murray has held positions in the marketing departments at top U.S. companies including General Electric, Leo Burnett, and Sears. His desire to become an entrepreneur and apply what he had learned as a marketing professional in the corporate world led him to create 220 Communications which started strictly as an events company and grew into the areas of publishing, fundraising, as well as music marketing and distribution.
Headliners at this year's interactive conference include former Vice President Al Gore and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. For more information about SXSW 2013, visit http://sxsw.com/interactive.
