The team behind one of Canada’s biggest tech acquisitions of 2011 aren’t wasting their time before getting on the speaking circuit.

The Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX) announced today that Marcel Lebrun, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Salesforce Radian6 will be giving a keynote address at their December 1st event.

But you don’t have to wait until then to hear their story. The Banff Venture Forum is hosting Salesforce Radian6’s CFO Jeff White as their keynote dinner speaker on October 7th and his presentation is titled: Big Exits – The Radian6 Exit Story Behind This Year’s $300+ Million Sale to Salesforce.com.

It’s great to see both Lebrun and White sharing their knowledge and experience with Canada’s entrepreneurs and VC community.

Launched in Fredericton in 2006, Radian6 was created with the idea that companies need to monitor the social web in order to effectively join conversations with customers and prospects. Radian6’s unique technology captures hundreds of millions of conversations every day across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, blogs and online communities and provides actionable insights in real-time.

Earlier this year, the company was acquired by Salesforce for $326 Million.
