Thanks for sharing this. We were very honoured to be selected for merit in our category. Actually SNCR made an error on the credits and instead of saying Altitude Branding for Radian6 it should actually say “Radian6 with Chris Brogan of CrossTech Media for the Twebinar Series”. Either way glad to be selected. And congrats to the other winners.

Cheers.

You’re welcome, David – and thank you for the correction on SNCR’s credits. I’ve made the appropriate edits.

Congratulations on the award, and please feel free to send over any digital/social/new media news from Radian6.
