Social enterprise and the future of business with Clara Shih and other thought leaders at WIRED BizCon


The world is changing. New business practices, ideas and innovations have disrupted traditional ways of working and living.

On Tuesday, May 13th Hearsay Social CEO Clara Shih (@clarashih) will be addressing these topics at the 2014 WIRED Business Conference alongside today’s most dynamic thought leaders, including David Karp (founder and CEO, Tumblr, @davidkarp), Nolan Bushnell (founder, Atari, @NolanBushnell), Lawrence Lessig (professor at Harvard Law School and founder of Creative Commons, @lessig) and Andrew McAfee (principal research scientist at MIT and cofounder of the Initiative on the Digital Economy at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, @amcafee).

The unique one-day event will run through a variety of subjects, from the power of visual social media and Bitcoin to software architecture and financial social media.

In the afternoon, Clara will sit down for a conversation with Jill Schlesinger (CBS News Business Analyst, Host of Jill on Money, @jillonmoney) to discuss the state of the social enterprise today and where it’s going tomorrow. Social business has come a long way from its days of hazy social marketing ROI: companies across all industries now understand that the true value of social comes down to deepening relationships with customers and growing business.

Watch the conference live here on Tuesday and follow the conversation at #WIREDBizCon.
