  • thanks for this - I relate so much that I was nodding away as I went through the slides. I can even recognise the poor social media chap - seen myself and my colleagues looking like that! Especially when we did social for a large corporate where they just had no appreciation for all the ins and outs.
    I've reblogged as well on my wordpress blog - imhoot.net

    Definitely a worthy post to pin, tweet, F/B and send to Linkedin.
