Linda will join Sharon Glenn, Senior Corporate Counsel, Marketing for T-Mobile USA, Inc.; Catherine Karol, Chief Privacy Officer for General Motors Company; and Shripal Shah, Senior Vice President, Digital Strategy for the Washington Redskins, in a panel presentation titled “Avoiding Legal Landmines When Tapping into the Exploding Popularity of Social Media.”
