  • A thought provoking message which I totally agree with. I come from the world of Medical Information & Communications professionals working in pharma. We're struggling to see where we fit in as we are super sensitive to what regulators think we're up to; the risk of information being seen as promotion. As pharmaceutical industry professionals who have dialogues with thousands of healthcare professionals and patients or their carers every day, we cannot ignore the impact of social media but need to learn how to harness its power to have meaningful conversations.

  • Great words
    'Less Selling - More Dialogue'
    and
    'Don't treat social media as mass media.'

    and I would also add:
    Communities and people beat traditional corporate communication.

    Thanks for a good presentation.
