A couple of months ago, we happily shared the news with you that our fearless leader, Carrie Layne, was honored as one of the brightest young business brains in Texas. Well, now, she’s going to be one of the folks helping those who are interested gain a greater understanding for how Social Media can help companies of all sorts get the word out about their products and events.

Carrie will be one of the presenters at this year’s Social Media Club of Dallas Social Media Showcase. In its first year, the line-up looks to be great, and with the event being held at the Angelika Theatre in Dallas (with an after-party at Central 214), it seems to be on the right track in terms of knowing how to get the ball rolling on a quality, annual event.

Please note, the folks presenting ideas throughout the showcase aren’t a random bunch of techies. These are leaders that Club says “were selected for case studies that highlighted social media successes and innovations.”
