Des is passionate about helping small business owners cut through the social media hype and buzzwords and become confident, effective users of social media in its various forms. 

Listeners will learn: 

  1. Why for a strategic approach to social media, focusing on technology first is a mistake and why you need to focus first on culture. 
  2. How to tell if your business culture is positive about social media or negative, or actively resistant. 
  3. How negativity about or resistance (active or passive) to cooperating in a social media strategy may show you more fundamental issues for your firm (hint: it might not be about social media at all) 
  4. Why leaving your social media engagement to an outside agency is at best a short term solution and in reality just puts your business further behind the game. 
  5. Practical steps to tackle any cultural dissonance about social media.
