Session Title: Social Business – Culture, Caring and Branding

More than ever we are seeing the term “Media” becoming disassociated with the “Social” online movement of today – and that’s a good thing. Social is not a marketing media channel, as it has been overly referenced. The real power of Social is its ability to build worlds of engaged, passionate communities on a scalable basis that can make a difference.

This session, Collins will focus on how to reevaluate and transform your business into a Social Driven Business. To effectively grow your business in this hyper-connected social age, its better to focus on core human behaviors, identifying different tribes and their business pains points, needs and passionate interests that your business address than just promoting your product / services and trying to keep up with the latest digital and social media tools .
