November 15, 2012 — San Francisco, CA — Hearsay Social, provider of the leading social sales and marketing platform, announced today that its senior executives have been selected to speak at E2 Innovate, iStrategy, and LeWeb in November and December 2012. They will be sharing insights, tips, and key learnings based on their work with the company’s clients, which have been pushing the envelope in their use of social sales and marketing.
Steve Garrity, CTO and co-founder of Hearsay Social, will deliver a session at E2 Innovate titled How to Match Speeds Between Your Enterprise and the Social Networks on Thursday, November 15th from 8:30-9:15 a.m. In his session, Mr. Garrity will explain how companies and their beleaguered IT departments can navigate and become insulated from these rapid API changes.
