Keynote Panel: Champion-level Social Media Tactics

Pat Donahue

Our keynote panel speakers have one of the best, and perhaps most challenging, of online dream jobs: social media manager for a championship-winning professional sports team. During good times, they get to engage with some of the most passionate fans and customers in the world. But during a losing streak, those fans passionately voice their displeasure.

Megan Ryan

Pat Donahue of the LA Kings Hockey Club (@lakings) and Megan Ryan (@redsox) of the Boston Red Sox will share how they connect with fans using all things social, story-telling, crowd-sourcing and beyond.
