  • Great advice. I think a lot of organizations make the mistake of taking step one of empowering their team members to speak for them via social media, but they don't make them true brand ambassadors. There is a huge need for training, a style guide, knowledge of the brand, knowledge of social media rules and best practices, and the list goes on. This is a great presentation for organizations to use as a template for training their staff to do social media right.
