During 2008, Lubetkin will focus on research into the use of social media technologies by companies in the financial services industry, and will will be a featured speaker/instructors at the SNCR’s upcoming New Communications Forum (http://www.newcommforum.com), which will be held April 22-25, 2008 in Sonoma County, Calif, where he will also live-blog and produce podcast reports from the seminar.
