About the Talk:
If in 1960 Television was described as the Great Wasteland, what will Social Media in the year 2012 be described as? For estate planning professionals, it is a media that should be carefully understood, not ignored, and used in a way that enhances one’s practice. This segment will be tailored towards how to use social media effectively in one’s practice, in 2012. This will focus on the business enhancement potential of social media.
