Crowdsourcing the Meeting 

The Storify – some of the Social Media live from the meeting

The Tweetbinder – Social sharing stats, with only 10% of attendees sharing, still impressive

History

My first PIMA experience was the summer of 2005 at the Broadmoor, 10 years ago.  In promoting the brand new Blog, many inquired with a questioning look, “What’s a Blog?”. ☺ [See the original post here. Unfortunately the podcast doesn’t work. Rats!] Read the rest of this entry »

Background

Joanna, so glad I saw your post. Very timely.

Sunset or Sunrise #Corporate #Future #SMAC

A Sunset or A Sunrise?

Just yesterday I had two separate, unrelated conversations with FinServ friends in CLE, one a rising star Millennial with a top-tier bank, and the other, a Web-savvy Boomer with a top-tier regional brokerage, both frustrated with their organization’s policy prohibiting the use of Social Media. The Millennial isn’t sure that his company, as much as he likes it, is the right place for him longer term. His concern is around his own professional growth in the context of a company whose actions, in spite of corporate words, clearly indicate that it doesn’t value staying current with technology and the culture it serves. The boomer spoke about the recent surge in turnover at the firm, good people in the middle of the org chart that are leaving because of inflexible policies around working from home and other cultural issues that cause them to not only see, but jump at other opportunities, and thus forcing the boomer to have to go to clients and introduce yet another client relationship manager, etc., etc., etc.

Your spot-on writing, and thanks for sharing, raises the issues. I’m going to write a bunch of stuff and then share this post with a bunch of people. I hope others do as well. It’s an urgent discussion. Read the rest of this entry »
