It was an honor to be invited to the George Herbert Walker School Of Business And Technology for the latest installment of their Walker Speaker Series. I participated in a panel discussion on “Bettering Your Business Using Social Media.”
I was joined on stage by fellow panelists Kathleen Manning of Monsanto, Amber Talbot of Scottrade, and Dave Collett of Weber Shandwick. Dr. Benjamin Akande, dean of the Business School, moderated our discussion. He started us off with some questions of his own, and then we took audience questions. Dr. Akande deftly moved us from one topic to the next, and I think the panel especially enjoyed engaging with the audience.
Thanks to Dr. Akande for moderating, Charla Lord for helping us out behind the scenes, and Patrick Powers for inviting me in the first place, and being an all around cool guy.
I did especially enjoy the Webster University blog post linked to above (and pictured above) that includes an autofeed of their latest tweet. That tweet was a retweet of my #FollowFriday tweet for Dr. Akande. The irony is thick and heavy, no?
Thanks again to Webster University. Let’s do it again sometime!
