Thanks Willis … It should come as no surprise the bigger a brand gets the less conversational they tend to become For instance, how would you feel if you called General Motors and the CEO picked up the phone? You might feel like perhaps this company is too small for my needs Which is why as companies get bigger they layer on more and more infrastructure to foster that perception But new media changes that paradigm as evidenced by GM’s blog Fastlane written by the CEO Bob Lutz New media levels that playing field and opens companies up to a conversation My goal here today is to give you a look at the challenge involved rethinking your brand to be more conversational As well as some ideas in how to leverage new media along side traditional media So let me take you through my experience in working with the BearingPoint brand
