“It doesn’t matter if you’re a business owner, a college student, an executive at a Fortune 500 company, or in transition,” said Joselin Mane, founder of Boston Tweetup. “People do business with people they know, like, and trust. This TweetUp is the perfect way to enhance your life and your career by developing new relationships and strengthening those you already have. MegaTweetup also offers an opportunity to connect with New England’s best and brightest minds in a relaxed fun environment.”
Newbies to the social media scene can learn tips on how to get started and understand the value of social media for a career and business from social media leaders including Steve Garfield, David Gerzof, Tom O’Keefe, Joselin Mane, CC Chapman, Ann Hadley and Laura Fitton.
Even though it’s a social event, be sure to bring business cards, since this event will be a great way to connect with many different people for outsourcing, partnership, and/or hiring.
