  17. WWW.ICTPENANG.NET Web 2.0 Tengku Zafrul (15jan08 – CEO Series Talk): 17 Understand that we’re in the era of Web 2.0. Nearly everyone is connected and if you want to communicate y y with the public you are going to have to use the tools they use. Blogs and networking sites are not “out there”. They’re the Th ’ th communication t l of th new age. A d i ti tools f the And tomorrow there will be different ones. So talk to a lot of people, people get a sense of the trends and always be willing to modify your strategy. The key thing is to communicate and you do whatever it takes.

  18. WWW.ICTPENANG.NET Web 2.0 TengkuZafrul.com Blog (continued) 18 A CEO today has to be hands-on. He or she cannot delegate and go out for another round of golf. That may have been what it was like before b t that time has passed Yo need to know what’s but passed. You kno hat’s going on at every level. Things are likely to slip if you let them. It helps if you’re an insomniac especially when you find yourself in meetings at three in the morning. You have to learn to be a performer because most likely you will be the face of the company and if people like and trust you, they will like and trust your company… Being a CEO is not a glamour [sic] job job. It just appears that way. Do you have the stomach for it? Web 2.0 by nasir@ictpenang.net
