What Will Social Media Look Like in 2020? Social Stocks Still In First Inning




Social technology is changing everything about business as we know it and I'm teaching corporate leaders around the world, why and how.

I'm the Author of the book Social Inc. - Why Business Is The Next Social Opportunity Worth Trillions (available February 1, 2013). With a foreword by Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO of, Social Inc. tells the story of the biggest business management development of our lifetimes.

I'm also the CEO of Saaskwatch Systems where we're focused on reinventing business through social management platforms, starting with animal healthcare.

As a former partner in a leading advisory firm, I bring 30 years of global business experience across four continents and 20 countries to the international groups I speak with. I've lived in Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, England and the US.

My talks stretch people's thinking on why social technology is a competitive business tool that the McKinsey Global Institute recently valued at over a trillion U.S. dollars. Most importantly, they'll also know what they should do about it.

Social technology has turned governments upside down, just think what it can do for, or to your company?
