BIA Presents Panelist at ACEDS Conference

Robin Thompson to participate in Pre-Conference Session on Social Media

NEW YORK CITY – April 4, 2016Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), a leader in eDiscovery software and Managed Legal Services, announced today that Robin Thompson will participate in a panel focused on social media at the 2016 ACEDS Conference in New York.

“The importance of social media cannot be understated as part of the communication plan of today’s legal organization. It’s important for the lawyers and legal staff who work in the organization to understand the value of social media in their day-to-day activities,” said Robin Thompson, Vice-President of Marketing for Business Intelligence Associates. “Today, the use of social media in the business has increased substantially, and we see organizations using social media in the hiring process, in the buying process, to share information with colleagues and clients, and to build professional and corporate brands. It’s incredibly insightful for ACEDS to include a program on this topic. This will be a fabulous interactive discussion, and one I hope everyone will attend,” added Thompson.

When asked about Thompson’s participation in this discussion, panel moderator Rob Robinson said “Robin’s balance of expertise and excitement coupled with her reputation and relationships is one envied by many and attained by few.” “I am equally excited to participate with both Ari Kaplan and Rob Robinson who are among our industry’s top voices in social media. I’ve long admired their work and it’s exciting to share our combined experience with conference attendees,” added Thompson.

The Law Student Blogger/Social Invitational pre-conference seminar brings together global blogging and social participants from the eDiscovery and Legal Technology community with law students forward thinking enough to create and share their knowledge via online media while still in school. While our hosts Ari Kaplan, Rob Robinson and Robin Thompson are prolific and accomplished online professionals, we expect to learn just as much from our law student attendees as our hosts. Expect a lively discussion, with tips on tools, methodologies and sources to contribute to justice, build a brand, maximize networks and to attract followers and potential employers.
