On Thursday 5 April, 2012, I was invited by the New Zealand Centre for Social Innovation (NZCSI) as a Social Media - Expert Witness to present to the Class of 2012 at Social Entrepreneurs School (SES) at Ko Awatea Centre, Auckland.
I had the honour of giving an introductory 90 minute session on Social Media in Business - Best Practice for Entrepreneurs. I titled it Social Media for SOLO-preneurs i.e. entrepreneurs (usually 1-2 person teams) armed with heaps of passion and a business plan to go with it.
I created this presentation mainly in the hope it inspires small businesses and professionals to get started, have a play and explore the vast possibilities (or switch up a marketing gear and take it up a notch or two) with social media.
Q - Who is a Social Entrepreneur?
A - "Social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for communities and society, developing ideas and new approaches, creating and implementing solutions to social problems that change society for the better."
