If your event, company, or organization needs a dynamic and professional speaker on social business or social media topics, give us a call. Matt and Amber are both seasoned keynote presenters with polished content that will entertain and educate your audience.
Topics can range from fundamentals to dig-deep concepts about social media and social business implementation, business process, change management, or the social evolution. We can present together or separately, depending on the nature of your event and what you’re looking for. If we don’t have a presentation in our library that suits you, we’re happy to develop something custom for your group.
For more information about our speaking fees, availability and speaking references, please email us with details of your event (date, location, a bit about your audience and topics you have in mind) and we’d be delighted to talk with you.
Creating Gravity: Social Business in Practice
Social Business. You hear that term a lot lately, but what exactly does it mean? Why should I care about it, and how is it relevant to a company like mine? And how, exactly, do I make the transition from where I am today to the business I want to be part of tomorrow? We’ll talk about why smart, progressive businesses learn to purposeful build companies that attract the very best customers, employees, and partners, and how their dedication to Creating Gravity sets them apart and lays a strong, scalable foundation for social business and long-term success.
Selling Social to the C-Suite: Getting Buy In
One of the biggest barriers to larger scale adoption of social business practices is fear. Fear of the unknown, of the risks, of having the right strategy and the right talent in place to lead the charge. We’ll review the reasons that executives resist social programs, and how you can build a plan and a framework that addresses those concerns with tangible programs and initiatives to not only sell the idea of social business, but get your teams excited and eager to support the shift.
Building a Social Center of Gravity
Who owns social, where does it live, and how do you design your organization in a way that scales social business programs and leverages the talent and expertise you already have? How do you build a center for social that aligns and coordinates programs to achieve your larger business goals without implementing the dated “command and control” methods of yesterday? How can you help encourage self-organized teams to lead and drive momentum for social initiatives? We’ll walk you through a concrete framework that works to put social at the heart of an organization and allow it to touch and impact many areas of the business.
