Andrea T Edwards, CSP, The Digital Conversationalist, is a change agent, provocateur, passionate communicator and social leader. Andrea challenges organisations to think differently about integrity in the digital age. To think differently about the positive potential of social media. And she challenges business leaders to understand that, the tool of business transformation today, is the powerful voices of employees as social leaders. Because it is employees who are the champions and true influencers for businesses in the digital age. When organisations fully embrace this philosophy, social media becomes a catalyst for change. It engages and empowers individuals to serve the communities of their organisation, helps break down unnecessary siloes and hierarchies, while also empowering employees to gain control over careers and destinies. Social leadership unlocks everyone’s potential, because when you own your voice, you own your future. If you want to create rapid and powerful change in your business, change that will fundamentally shift the way you think and act, change that will attract the best talent, empower your employees and draw customers to you, then speak to Andrea about how a social leadership culture can lead your business to achieve incredible results.

If you value my opinion, I really want to encourage you to listen to this podcast – Transcend – with Scott Barry Kaufman. I discovered the You Are Not So Smart Podcast by David McRaney recently and love it
At the end of 2012, I came to the conclusion that I was too early trying to establish a business that offered content marketing in the Asia Pacific region – after years of trying – but timing is everything and I got my timing wrong.
One of the themes that came through is how businesses are coming up with multiple ways to help educate, train and upskill employees, but equally, how hard it is to get employees to take advantage of these opportunities.
In recent weeks I was part of a community scapegoated. I’m not going to tell you what or why, because the reason it happened is because I can’t speak up against it due to possible negative ramifications.
