Also put on your calendar the next PRSA Silicon Valley Professional Development Seminar:

Social media realities... What they don't tell you
May 6 - Microsoft Conference Center

David Spark, new media consultant, will lead the group on how to build an authentic voice for communicating via social media. Other social media seminars focus on the distribution angle -- the tools, techniques, and conversations necessary for social media. But distribution is the last stage of any social media engagement. You need to first learn what it takes to create the content that causes people to engage in conversation via social media.

Thank you to PRSA Silicon Valley sponsors Ogilvy Public Relations and Trainer Communications.
