How can organisations venture towards being a social enterprise? What are the trends to look out for and embrace?
In looking back at Hootsuite’s development, Ryan Holmes CEO discusses the trends and future of social media.
Hosted by Amy Mcillwain, Global Industry Director Hootsuite, you’ll learn how businesses are taking advantage of social, the future of social customer experience and how develop executive support.
Ryan Holmes founded Hootsuite in 2008, growing the company from a lean startup to a global leader in social media with over 11 million users, including 744 of the Fortune 1000 companies.
Thought leader, dog lover and serial entrepreneur, Ryan has redefined the face of social media—bringing Twitter, Facebook and other social networks out of the dorm room and into the boardroom. A college drop-out, he started a paintball company and pizza restaurant before founding Invoke Media, the company that developed Hootsuite.
Today, Ryan is an authority in technology and business. He writes regularly for publications like Fast Company, Inc, Fortune, and has a column in the Wall Street Journal. He's also one of LinkedIn's top 20 most followed Influencers and presents at the world’s top tech conferences.
An angel investor and advisor outside of Hootsuite, Ryan supports programs that empower the greater startup community and future generations of entrepreneurs, including his own non-profit initiative, The Next Big Thing.
Amy leads the financial services team at Hootsuite. As a social media speaker, best-selling author, and compliance expert, she’s appeared on FOX, CBS, ABC, and NBC.
