Description

Top down, bottom up, lateral and inside-out communication have all been around forever.  But the arrival of social technologies is dramatically changing the way people communicate with each other, their friends and their colleagues both inside and outside the corporate walls. Is it already out-of-control?  Or are their powerful ways to support and channel this “social communication” so that it builds positive synergy around your brand, focuses organizational activity, and reduces friction in the path of change and performance. This webinar explores this brave new world of social communication and takes a hard look not only at the tools–but at strategies and stories of how this works in reality.

Our three experts will address the topic from the vantage point of:

  • “stakeholder re-engagement” (mutual recognition of changed business climate and required new ways of working)
  • “brand advocacy” (the essential steps to identifying internal advocates, develop guidelines and training, and how to create an integrated communications strategy that gives your employees a reason to live and socialize your brand)
  • Technology (moving from facilitating and growing relationships likeTwitter to fundamentally changing tone and content of internal dialogue)

What You Will Learn:

  • How to identify your organization’s key social communicators and how to best engage them
  • Starting a pilot, nurturing it, and making the case for broader implementation
  • Encouraging and managing participation
  • Identifying what if any extra technologies to use
  • Processes for keeping your organization’s values and messages present
  • Figuring out the metrics

Who Should Attend 

This webinar is primarily aimed at those in the early stages of implementing or learning about social media, although it will also help more advanced practioners to focus their efforts. It is especially suitable for:

  • Small and mid-sized business leaders
  • Corporate executives who are new to social media
