Today's Guest on 'Social Media for the CEO' is.. Dr. Bill Ward from Syracuse University

If you're a Royal Wedding Reveler whose been up since 2am watching all of the pageantry, we know a champagne filled celebration throughout the rest of today might be slightly distracting.  But in the spirit of being an early riser, we hope you'll join us post-balcony kiss this morning at 10am CT on ‘Social Media for the CEO‘ when our host Mary B. Adams will interview Dr. William J. Ward, Professor of Social Media at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.  While our friends across the pond party on and raise a toast to Wills & Kate, we'll have a morning chat to discuss emerging social networks, the classroom setting, and how media consumption habits are affecting the modern communications classroom.  So grab a cuppa of coffee, tea or some other Royal Wedding themed cocktail and stop by for a bit of social media conversation!
