HTCE tackles Crowdsourcing

On Monday, November 24, 2008, the High-Tech Communicators’ Exchange is hosting another great speaker session titled Crowd Sourcing: Using mass collaboration to inject creativity and innovation into your organization.

Join us to hear Monica Hamburg, a Vancouver-based writer and social media consultant/evangelist, deliver a lively presentation with real-life, intriguing examples of Crowdsourcing in action.

According to Monica, no one business can employ staff who, even collectively, possess every possible skill or experience. The public, however, is filled with experts in all fields and disciplines. Businesses who recognize this fact are asking people outside their organization to provide input and work with their company in some fashion. This type of collaboration has produced innovative ideas, inventive solutions, and increased profit for many businesses. Monica will share with us the benefits and concerns about Crowdsourcing. Come prepared for an interactive discussion at the end of the presentation.

Monica Hamburg is a writer and social media consultant/evangelist. Registration and networking start at 6:00pm at the YWCA on Beatty Street and Hamburg’s presentation starts at 6:30pm. RSVP here.
