Hi Sue, thank you for your kind words, really enjoyed being there... much more fun that equivalent IT Director's Forum ;-)
Yes, broadly agree with the thinking here. certainly that integration for social companies is ultimately inevitable, and of the need for a coherent strategy & a roadmap that is umblically linked to an organisations' broader long term business objectives. A parallel pathway we would add here (our experience is of social strategy implementation in large B2B's primarily) is the need to develop a framework that enables the managed participation in social networks on behalf of the organisation by its' employees. This "locally fed" dimension (in a social strategy that is globally led / top down) enables organisations to become more agile, better connect the people who sell / deliver a service to the people who buy / use that service, and ultimately helps build organisational visibility and credibility. Though "handing over the mic" is the hardest part for organisations, this is where the power of social networks really resonates.
