Getting Things Done With Social Media


Published on

A presentation which takes the popular GTD approach to task management and applies it to popular social media activities.

Published in: Technology, Design
  • I was asked to speak to 30 small business owners as part of an alumni event at the local college. Although everyone thought they were coming to hear about social media I felt some reality would be more beneficial than the typical SM hype so often pitched these days. I reviewed each attendees online presence and decided to give them a GTD approach to things they needed to do online. Several advanced questions were addressed in the Q&A session after-wards. If you're interested in learning more or would like to have me present to your group feel free to email me via linkedin: LinkedIn:
