I gave a presentation at our agency about what I’ve learned from the wine industry as it relates to social networking.

In this world of “always on” our personal and professional lives tend to intersect and I share my thoughts on social networking as it relates to hobbies.

Being social is about being yourself (transparency) and our hobbies don’t just run after business hours. And when you’re being social, you’re also a representative of the organization, so you can’t check your business card on the way out the building at night either.

I have a brief bio online at http://shakegently.com/about
