Think Strategic. Think Gravity Summit.

Your humble servant joins acclaimed news anchor and journalist Rick Sanchez, Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes, and many others in an impressive lineup of speakers at next week’s Gravity Summit, held at a little place called Harvard University. If you haven't seen Ramon DeLeon speak, you are in for a real treat.

Our panel is called “Does Size Matter?” and in a fast-paced, 30-minute conversation we’ll uncover the true truth about fan counts and how leading marketers are doing not just putting big numbers on the board, but also making the best use of the fan bases they build.

This cuts to the core of what it means to be an effective social media marketer, or an effective marketer period. To help me crack this, I’m bringing out some of the big brains in the space: Richard Lyons (Dr Pepper), Marcelo Guerra (Showtime), Colin Sutton (OMD Word), and Mike Schneider (Allen & Gerritsen). These guys run some of the most successful social communities on the web and will have great insights to make you go “hmmm…”

So whether you're a leader in your industry, or you want to be one, you’re not going to want to miss this.
