Social Networks, with global connectivity is the new face of Business. Indian companies are increasingly developing products and service offerings for the international market and Social Networks plays an important role for startups and large conglomerates alike in getting connected to a global customer base.

Suresh & Thomas in their presentation will talk about the nuances of Social Networks and their linkages with business and entrepreneurship. They will discuss as to how companies can leverage existing social networks like Linked in, Face book and Twitter, or create new social platforms, to build and nurture relationships with their global customers. They will also try to find answers to the following FAQ's:-

  • How companies can leverage existing social networks?
  • Whether social networks are really cost-effective?
  • How can businesses/startups fit in the new social world of "conversations", "relationships" and "communities"?
