Actiance and Macquarie Team to Educate E2 Boston Attendees on Effective Ways to Enable Social in Financial Services

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2013) - Actiance, helping organizations benefit from communications, collaboration and social networking, today announced its customer Macquarie Group will share expert insight into how to integrate social into the marketing objectives of a business at E2 Boston on June 18. Presenting jointly with Actiance, Macquarie will highlight how the organization promoted the innovative use of technology to deliver social media to investment advisers as a key element in its communications tool kit.

E2 Boston is a UBM Tech platform that provides enterprises with the knowledge needed to work smarter, especially as the influx of social, mobile, cloud, big data and new software architectures are allowing organizations to move quicker and reach new customers faster than ever.

As vice president, digital marketing for Macquarie, Silu Modi spearheaded the company's social business initiatives. Recently named a 2013 Social Business Leader by InformationWeek, Modi leveraged the Actiance Socialite solution to enable Macquarie financial advisors to access social networks, a key component of the organization's overall social business plan. During the panel discussion, Modi will provide candid thoughts on how the various stakeholders at Macquarie, which included compliance, IT and other executives, banded to enable social within their organization.

"A key component to successfully deploying social media within a financial services firm is ensuring that all key stakeholders are involved, and the earlier the better. Silu tells a fascinating story how he aligned multiple, complex requirements and mitigated risks across the enterprise to enable social," said Joanna Belbey, social media and compliance specialist, Actiance.
