The Internet has changed the world in the mid 90’s and Social Media is changing it again today. Today’s Social Media platforms (from LinkedIn, to Facebook, Twitter, and you name it), offer extraordinary capabilities and unique opportunities which can bring about significant business and personal benefits.  However, many businesses and users are not realizing these benefits, either a) getting caught up in the social media “chatter” and spending too much time in these platforms with little or no returns, or b) not fully leveraging the capabilities of these platforms, or c) writing them off all together as irrelevant or unimportant-- the place where people post what they had for lunch. 

Whatever our view is on social media, the reality is that 100’s of millions of users are engaged in these platforms, and this large user base includes many of our customers, employees, partners, colleagues, friends, and family members. It is imperative then that we better understand these platforms, become skilled at using them, and learn how to fully leverage them. In this session, we will explore their capabilities, and discuss ways in which we can use them strategically and purposefully, to achieve significant business and personal value. 

What you will get as a result of this session:

  • If you are new to social media, this session will provide you with everything you need to get started including demonstrations of each of the platforms. 
  • If you are already using these platforms, you will gain additional insights into how to use them more strategically and purposefully. 
  • In addition (as an extra bonus), you will learn firsthand about the Results Curve™ and how it can help you in managing social media and other interrupting technologies such as e-mail and Instant Messaging. 

Please take a few minutes to fill out the Social Media Inbox survey before the session(if you haven’t done so already): 


Hope you will be able to join us!

Lunch & Learn Webinar: "Gen Y Teaches Us Twitter" by Jenny Blake

Posted by Pierre Khawand on Mon, Dec 14, 2009 @ 02:58 PM

Gen Y Teaches Us TwitterIn this session, Jenny Blake, Career Development Program Manager at Google, will not only explain the benefits of Twitter and how it can be used to help streamline communication and be an effective networking and collaboration tool, but will also guide us through a step by step demonstration of the Twitter feature set with audience participation (that is what Twitter is for afterall)!

Back in July, we had a session with Jenny about Gen Y. If you missed that session, the full recording is on Facebook. Jenny provided some great insights into Gen Y's work habits and priorities and their view on productivity and technology. A few weeks ago, we continued the theme of Generations in the Workplace, and Adam Christensen, CTO of HR Systems at Wells Fargo, represented Gen X and gave us his insights about Gen X. The recording of that session is also on Facebook.

The Gen Y Teaches Us Twitter session has two purposes:

  • One is to demystify Twitter so if you haven't yet ventured into this platform and want to do so, or if you're just curious about it, you can get quickly and easily up-to-date, learn the basic techniques, and see how people are using it, and what the benefits might be.
  • The second purpose though, which is just as important, is to continue the theme of "Generations in the Worplace" and get more insights about how Gen Y uses technology, and the role that Gen Y can play in the workplace, helping others/coaching others in becoming more familiar and comfortable with the latest trends in technology.
