Social Media to engage &
connect at the NE CPE conference Another example of using social media to engage a broader audience. In this case I used twi:er to get feedback from CPAs about the use of social media in learning. It also informed CPAs about the NE CPE Conference so they “heard” that we were working hard to improve the learning for them. The followed up with a blog post about the event and got more engagement with comments from the group.

Are you a social business?
“A Social Business isn’t just a company that has a Facebook page and a TwiMer account. A Social Business is one that embraces and cul7vates a spirit of collabora7on and community throughout its organiza7on—both internally and externally.” h:p://www.ibm.com/blogs/zz/en/

most! h:p://cpa.tc/engagement • Cloud • Mobile • Social • Value-‐added • Collabora;ve h:p://cpa.tc/socialbiz
The challenge is how to
position our organizations for L > C “To keep pace in your L>C industry, let alone as aleader, requires your rate of LEARNING to begreater than, or equal to, the rate of CHANGE.”
Why you should care about
Social Media “In-‐forming is the individual persons analog to open-‐sourcing, outsourcing, insourcing, supply-‐chaining, and oﬀshoring. Informing is the ability to build and supply your own personal supply chain—a supply chain of informa4on, knowledge, and entertainment. In-‐ forming is about self-‐collabora4on— becoming your own self-‐directed and self-‐ empowered researcher, editor, and selector of entertainment. – Thomas Friedman
Five Ways to Get started…
1. Create your digital footprint (Linked-‐In, Facebook, Google +, Twi:er, blog) 2. Start listening (use google reader and twi:er to start listening) 3. Make friends (build your network and follow on twi:er) 4. Create & Share (join the conversa;on by commen;ng, Retwee;ng, and start a blog) 5. Recognize & Reciprocate (always recognize and a:ribute other’s work)
