Description

Social Networks are on a meteoric rise.  According to Forrester:  “Young adults are more than twice as likely to be creators of original content and two and a half times more likely to be social network joiners as compared with previous generations. Additionally, 49% of them visit social networking sites at least monthly.” Attend this luncheon to learn how your new employees are already harnessing this technology to change the game in the way work is done in the oil & gas business.
  
Managers need to be educated on this new medium and how it impacts their business.  Join Zain Naboulsi, Information Technology Evangelist for Microsoft, as we discuss the present and the future of social networks and how they will impact the business operations of Oil & Gas corporations.  We will discuss the myriad touch points social networks have with business today from hiring to security implications and beyond.  We look forward to seeing you there!
