December 20, 2010

Our colleagues from the United Kingdom delivered an interesting webcast on the use of Web 2.0 to help further develop organizations’ leaders.  The December 9th webcast titled  Developing Your Leaders with Web 2.0: A Guide to Getting Started addressed what social media is, how to avoid the pitfalls, and the top five business concerns to take into consideration when using social media. 

Presenters Mick Yates and Matt Holt stressed the importance of understanding the “social mechanics”  first, as they are the driving force behind social media.

Here’s the official description, followed by a link to the recording if you’d like to check it out…
