Nearly 80 people attended the inaugural Social Media Breakfast-Toledo April 3. Those who cannot attend the May 1 event can watch it stream online live at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/social-media-breakfast-toledo.

“At our first breakfast, discussion included the importance of online reviews, and how blog posts and other mentions of your company in social media can affect your reputation. That’s why it is important for owners of businesses monitor what people are saying about their company online,” said Kevin Cesarz, president/founder of CZSpeak, a Toledo-based social media consultant, and a founding member of Social Media Breakfast-Toledo.

Newman founded Techrigy, Rochester, N.Y., in 2006 to help businesses provide visibility into what people are saying in social media about their brands, products and competitors. He is a serial entrepreneur, having previously founded two successful startups, DbSecure and Application Security Inc.

He is an international speaker on technology topics, and has authored several patents in database security and social media.
