The future of social media and communications, and its implications for Houston

The role of marketing and communications in both business development and overall business operations is constantly shifting. With technology growth serving as a catalyst for that change, the future of social media and communications will affect more than just the marketing managers and leaders in any organization. 

Dwight Silverman, Tech Blogger and Social Media Manager for the Houston Chronicle, will discuss this future and the implications for Houston.
