Social media is here to stay. Ask anyone in marketing — it’s becoming a bigger part of everyone’s department. No matter where any company is in their adoption timeline, they are all asking basic questions about metrics, ROI and long-term strategy.

Chris Murphy, Director of Brand Communications and Digital Marketing for adidas, has learned some valuable lessons about measurements and ROI through initiatives both successful, and less so. He will be discussing those lessons and how they’re informing future adidas efforts in the social space.

Plan now to attend this exciting Professional Development event! Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by the presentation from 6-7 p.m.
