How Financial Institutions Get True Value from Social Media will feature insights into successfully using social media during an hour-long joint webinar hosted by Actiance and the Business Development Institute. Sarah Carter, general manager of social business at Actiance, will educate decision makers at leading financial institutions on the value of becoming a social business, best practices for utilizing social technologies and latest industry legal and compliance requirements.

Importantly, attendees will learn how to integrate social into the fabric of their brands and take advantage of social business.

We're seeing more and more financial institutions developing robust polices, empowering advisors and employing technology to better use social," said Carter. "I look forward to discussing the myriad of ways that financial services businesses can use social to achieve business goals."
