Keynote slides: The Power of Social Media and Future Organizations


This morning I am giving the external keynote at a closed conference for senior client executives run by a major professional services firm. They know the technical content they are presenting is rather dry so my role is to provide a highly engaging kick-off to the day (spouses are invited too) which is also practical and useful for attendees.

As is quite often the case these days, my client asked me to combine two of the topics from my general list of speaking topics, bringing together the ideas from The Power of Social Media and The Future of Work and Organizations. In fact every presentation I do is customized for the specific context and audience, including many topics not on the list, but it can be useful for clients to use the general speaking topic list to work out what they are looking for.

Here are the slides to my keynote. The usual disclaimer: the slides are designed to accompany my presentation and not to be viewed by themselves, but you still might find them interesting.

The basic storyline of the keynote is about social media and how that is shaping what organizations are becoming. I offer suggestions on how to build personal value from engaging in social media, and particularly given the seniority of the audience, their leadership role in helping their organizations to create value from the adoption of social media both internally and externally.

  • It is really a big thing for us that we have internet today.
    We almost do depend on this medium especially on our works. No wonder that it
    had created a big blow to our daily living today.

  • There are even
    cases where you can make money with them. If you need to buy something, and
    it’s for sale at a much reduced price, you may want to get a payday loan now,
    buy it, and then reimburse your loan, rather than wait until after payday, and
    have to pay much more for the item you need.

  • The quality of a
    CPA salary package is going to be predicated on the various factors I discussed
    above. Some of the most lucrative packages will be offered to those who not
    only have the desired experience, but also the CPA certification, other
    relevant certifications, advanced degrees, education from highly credible and
    regarded institutions as well as specialties within the accounting and finance

  • YouTube is probably one of the best social media tools on the planet,
    and there are millions that don’t use it at all. Video is a powerful marketing
    tool. Look at television and big screen movies, they have been around for years
    and they still are considered to be the most effective way for getting your
    messages across.

    The more sophisticated the type of lock you are dealing with, the more
    work will go into locating a capable locksmith to handle the job for you. To so
    many people, this might not seem to matter much but it really is a big deal.
    First and foremost, the closer the locksmith is to you the cheaper the services
    are probably going to be as he does not need to cover much distance to get to

    This might be the most important part of any plan, because there is a
    lot of peer pressure on the social media systems. This is because most of the
    people on the social media systems do not view the social media platforms the
    right way.
