On Tuesday, Aug. 28, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. EDT, seasoned PR professional Sarah Evans will discuss open social collaboration, an innovative approach that helps professionals, non-professionals, businesses and clients set goals and accomplish tasks together via online project management. She'll discuss how PR pros can take advantage of open social collaboration to streamline tasks, share information and connect with others.
