Former Wharton Professor Amy Shuen and book author of Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide presents her new book. The first 15 sign-ups receive a free autographed book at the event!

You know Web 2.0 has gone mainstream business when 75% of the 2623 executives worldwide surveyed by McKinsey in 2007 thought Web 2.0 was “strategic” and were actively planning to continue or increase Web 2.0 investments. So, whether you’re in the Fortune 500 or the Fortune 50Million, or a consultant, investor or recent grad you need to know more about Web 2.0 strategy right now. Even if you’re a casual user of Google, Wikipedia, Amazon and not sure if you should respond to invitations to LinkedIn, Facebook, Flickr or YouTube— you owe it to yourself to find out how you and your business can benefit from the millions of active users online that are powering up the Web 2.0 economy. Here’s your chance to have Web 2.0 Strategy Explained in business and financial terms.

Join former Wharton and Haas b-school professor, book author and internationally recognized authority Amy Shuen on Tuesday, May 27th for an Executive Briefing on Web 2.0 Strategy.

The book is described as “astonishingly useful”, “rethinking strategy in a highly networked world”, fascinating read for Wall Street analysts and investors, “unlocked the mystery of how the Web is generating massively valuable business opportunities”, “explains in plain language the business implications of the new Web”.
