Embracing Social with Gnostix Social Media Monitoring at Ignite Athens 2012


Published on

What is fascinating is how technology and the human consciousness have evolved concurrently to produce a new world of communication and collaboration. Businesses stuck in the old paradigm have struggled to redefine themselves and communicate online with any integrity to educated, informed decision makers and buyers. Businesses that do not catch up - and wake up - simply won’t be around in the years to come. Some main points for this presentation:
• Know thyself - communicate your story
• Transformation - is not destruction. Lose the fear - corporate culture shift, social implications
• Overcoming challenges & driving social transformation
• Size doesn’t matter - sizing up your audience does
• How we connect - & how to lose friends & alienate people
