San Jose, CA, United States, 2006/07/31 - Brian Solis, founder of the award-winning public relations firm FutureWorks Inc., has joined Forward as a Contributing Investor to share his expertise in PR and social networking.
Forward is the collaborative effort of a team composed of students, faculty and professionals from around the globe from varying levels and areas of expertise.
"We are delighted to welcome Brian Solis to the Forward team," says Erin Caldwell, Forward founder and managing editor. "We truly appreciate our Contributing Investors and other professionals who take the time to interact with the site. Their perspective is invaluable."
“This is an important project for me because in the early days of my career, I didn't really have anyone to look up to for guidance,” said Solis. “With Forward, I can share my experiences, successes and failures to help those around me grow.”
Solis’ first entry, “Get out of the office and attend a local event!” is a call for young professionals to attend industry-related networking events.
According to Solis’ article, “In the grand scheme of things, the right events attract the right people. And, the right people make their mark in business. Today’s ‘un’conference and event rules are shaking up, formats are redefined, and the end result is relevance mixed with fun and productivity.”
In addition to heading-up FutureWorks and his weekly contributions on Forward, Solis also writes for PR2.0, PR2point0.com, which covers new media PR, technology, Web 2.0, consumer electronics, Silicon Valley, and popular industry events.
