C&LC Vice President Janeé Pelletier Featured at PCMA Convening Leaders Annual Conference

“Social media has moved far beyond just a fun way to interact with friends.  Itʼs a serious business tool,” said Pelletier. “Social media matters more than many meeting planners realize.  Itʼs an amazing feedback mechanism and allows you to extend the scope of your meeting beyond physical time and space. Best of all, itʼs mostly free!  Planners who arenʼt integrating social media as part of their marketing strategy are missing a tremendous opportunity.”

Pelletier specializes in meeting strategy for clients in the midst of crises or organizational change.
