"Traditionally, CRM has been about managing customers," said Paul Greenberg, author, blogger and CRM expert. "Today, Social CRM is about engaging with the customer, and it's one of the biggest 'Enterprise 2.0' technology trends. At this event I look forward to challenging some of the traditional notions of CRM and engaging the audience in a lively dialogue."

"Social CRM is about more than just making sure the customer care team is connected with the rest of the organization. And it's much more than just monitoring social media sites to gauge customer opinions," said Richard Hughes. "It is clear that there are a number of opinions and misconceptions about what it really is and how to get there, so this discussion promises to be an interesting one."
