Here’s the overview:
Leveraging Tech for Linchpins
If you are an entrepreneur, or a creative leader in your field, you are more significant than your current situation. It’s time to leverage the web to show how indispensible you are. In his best-seller Linchpin, author Seth Godin identifies linchpins a people who “stand out…invent, lead (regardless of their title), connect others, make things happen…delight and challenge their customers and peers…and turn each day into a kind of art”. How do you go about creating a personal brand that transcends your company? This workshop offers tips on clever and responsible use of social media, as well as elegant and innovative tools to augment your digital presence and networking. Please bring a device of your choice.
