This week: Recaps, Rhetoric and the Power of Words. In the last week, we have seen the annual geek gathering known as the Consumer Electronics Show, the early hype of (today's) Verizon announcement and more tragically the mass shooting in Arizona. What do these things have in common? Rhetoric - whether marketing speak or political vitriol words play a crucial role ... and with technology those words carry even more power. On today's episode, Cathy is joined by Edelman Digital's Michael Brito to talk about this trend and what we can do about it. Formerly known as Social Media Hour, The Conversation is a new look for some great themes. Namely - it's not about the technology . It's about what you do with it. Jumping from this basic premise, each week The Conversation's Executive Producer & Host Cathy Brooks explores the bits and bytes that are changing the way people get and share information, interact and the way in which this is fundamentally changing social and professional interactions. Each week guests ranging from up and comer entrepreneurs to seasoned influencers and everyone in between join Cathy to talk about what they do, why they do it and how their personal story fits into the mix.
