SORT BY Relevancy
Today we celebrate the legacy of the man that changed a nation. HOW are we living up to the dream - in business and in life? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.”

Join us with guest Co-Host Ramon WIlliamson and Guest Diedre Bounds as we discuss Social Media and How Corporations are using it today.
When it comes to organization and operation, no one streamlines and structures quite like Deidre Bounds.
Currently responsible for wrangling the rapidly growing former start-up that is Ignite Social Media, Deidre sets and manages agency goals, orchestrates overall agency operations, guides the Account, Metrics, and Engagement teams, and manages the Midwest office, all with one hand tied behind her back.
When she's not busy keeping the folks at Ignite in line, she miraculously finds time to run a social networking site that addresses the top five health concerns of African-American women, show up to her daughter's soccer games, volunteer at a Detroit-area women's shelter, and curl up on the couch to appreciate the television dramatics of the Kardashians. You can understand why, around Ignite, her nickname is Deidre Bounds-less!
It's a digital world - and connecting to the physical is what "Social" Wayne Sutton does best with QR Codes from TriOut.

Seems like there is a revolution going on in the business world. Things are changing. Some folks are changing with it - and others are not the "early adopters" and feel a little imidated by all the new technology.
Especially social media. There seems to be a new social media site or downloadable app every few seconds.
How does one manage it all? Why is it important? And who are the thought-leaders in the area that I can glean from - without feeling like an idiot?
This show is a special solo show with Pam Perry, who is the resident "social media evangelist" and host of the Diverse Business show.
She will break down what's hot, what's not and why you should care and why some things you just need to let go - or job out - so you can have peace of mind.
If you can create content - at least pay attention of what's around you. This show will show you how to stay on the cutting edge without being a "techy" - and how to grow you business and your personal brand.
