Keith Parnell - SMPSVARecently I had the opportunity to participate in a panel of professionals that put social media to work in their daily business activities. The event was hosted by the Society for Marketing Professional Services of Virginia at the prestigious Westwood Club in Richmond, VA.

Each time I attend and/or participate in an event like this, I learn so much valuable information from the experiences that other organizations share from their marketing experiences.

Thank you to LaTonya Whitaker, Creative Marketing & Brand Strategist at Hankins & Anderson in Richmond, VA, and President of the Virginia Chapter of the SMPS, for the invite to participate in the panel.

Members of the panel were Erin Orr, Marketing Director at FOX Architects LLC in Washington, DC; Tracy Gould, Director of Marketing at Baskervill in Richmond, VA; Sara Lowery, Marketing Coordinator at KSA Interiors in Richmond, VA; Keith Parnell, CEO at JASE Digital Media in Norfolk, VA.
