Joanna Belbey, social media and compliance expert at Actiance, will join Julian Mills, head of corporate intranet & internal social media at Bank of Montreal, to explore the ethical, generational, cultural and regulatory issues that interfere with the value of social, collaborative communication at work.

The session, titled "Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire: Fallacy of Social at Work," will engage event attendees in a lively discussion about the real challenges facing organizations and how to overcome them to create collaborative workplaces. Mills will share insights from his role managing internal social media utilization, workplace productivity and social business tools at Bank of Montreal. A frequent speaker and Forbes contributor, Belbey will outline best practices from her role helping regulated firms use social media and other forms of communications effectively and compliantly.
