London (PRWEB UK) 13 November 2012
The social media phenomenon has created an emerging and critical communications platform which has, in turn, become a valuable strategic resource for today’s defence community. Beyond the enhancement of civil-military engagement, recruitment opportunities and internal and strategic communications, the utilisation of social media can also be a major contributor to mission success.
Against this backdrop, SMi Group’s conference taking place in Amsterdam, Netherlands will provide an in-depth analysis into how this evolving medium can further benefit the military and the defence communities, with case studies and presentations delivered by senior military personnel offering valuable lessons to learn from which will serve to improve existing communication strategies.
