Brush up on the themes that will be explored at Integrated Marketing Week (June 11-13) in New York with these free video expert series Google+ Hangouts.

Last week as part of our video expert series in advance of Integrated Marketing Week (#IMW13) we discussed integration with Liz Miller from the CMO Council and and Dave Wieneke from ISITE Design.

If you missed it and want a quick review, catch up with this takeaway post or on our YouTube.

It was a great conversation with viewers tweeting in questions, and a good balance of B2B best practice vs the approach larger brands take to integration.

Next week we'll follow it up with: Managing integration -- Wednesday, May 29, 2013: Noon EST

Great to see you've taken up Google+'s new features. I think a lot of people might not have even noticed, but the Hangout option's really cool and let's you live stream from conferences/events. And I like the whole Auto Awesome (even if the name is dreadful) which has made me some pretty excellent GIFs to date. I just need to convinve my friends and colleagues to actually start using it now! The average user spends 7 minutes a month on G+ - I like the service and I'm hoping it goes up now.
