BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2013) - Actiance, helping organizations benefit from new forms of communications and collaboration, today announced its GM of social business Sarah Carter will present on a panel with Wells Fargo, Standards & Poor and Thompson Reuters industry experts during the 2013 Asset-Based Capital Conference. Presented by the Commercial Finance Association, the conference is the premier networking and educational event of the year that focuses on the asset-based lending industry.
A recognized expert in social business and collaboration strategies, Carter's panel will explore the potential uses, benefits and risks of social media in the financial services sector. As social media has transformed the way lenders, bankers and consumers communicate, the banking and financial services industries have been deeply impacted by popular social channels, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn.
"There are more than 300 individuals registered for this year's event. It's clear that adding social to the agenda -- and providing an app for the conference, is a reflection of today's changing communications environment," said Barry Bobrow, Managing Director, Wells Fargo Securities LLC and co-chair of the 2013 Asset Based Capital Conference. "The conference brings together the brightest in the industry and this educational session will ensure a lively discussion on the best possible social strategies for effective communications."
"New legal and ethical issues arise daily with respect to social and the imperative to craft a plan that can be easily rolled out across a business has risen in importance," said Carter. "While many talk about using social channels, few are truly unleashing social business strategies through effective plans. I'm honored to be invited to this event, and want to thank Wells Fargo for inviting me."
