Time: 7:30am – 9:30am

Scott Monty has been called “an unstoppable force of nature,” “the best corporate social lead on the planet,” and Alan Mulally, the CEO of Ford Motor Company, called him “a visionary.” But perhaps the best way to describe Scott is “Renaissance Man.”

Currently on the staff of corporate communications in Ford Motor Company, Scott heads up the social media function and holds the Global Digital & Multimedia Communications Manager. He is a strategic advisor on all social media activities across the company, from blogger relations to marketing support, customer service to internal communications and more, as social media is being integrated into many facets of Ford business.

Scott will be speaking to SMCKC about his journey with Ford and translating such a power house brand into the language of social media. He’ll also be sharing past and current wins, like the Ford Fiesta Movement, as well as what the future holds for Ford.  

Scott will also take questions from the audience.

Registration is $15.00 and will include a light breakfast and lots of coffee.
