New Annual Cycle of the Social Media for Business Consortium

CfBI is about to launch its second Social Media for Business Consortium.

Building on the success of the first consortium which attracted blue chip organisations from across Europe, the consortium provides a confidential, trusting  environment for users of social media to benchmark and compare notes on what works and what not as they seek to apply Social Media in new ways to new KPIs .. all this away from the attention of vendors, consultants and competitors.

The consortium is shaped by the consensus of  needs of  its members. For a confidential discussion about possible win-wins for your organisation, please contact
