Judy Bellem, Principal, Director Account Services | The LinkedIn Lady Radio Show (April 18, 2012)

It was an honor and a pleasure to come to know and collaborate with Ken earlier this year on an episode of the LinkedIn Lady Radio Show where we discussed social media and how/why B2B companies are becoming more active in this space. It became very evident that Ken brings to the conversation a depth of knowledge so essential for helping companies develop and maintain viable and effective business and marketing strategies. His experience makes "fool-proof" the application those strategies from the theoretical to the practical across those markets defined to be most important to that company. When you knock on Ken's door, Ken answers! And that's nice.

How Do I Prevent Social Media Disaster, And What To Do If One Hits?

Customers talking about you on social media can "make" your brand - and destroy it. People are by nature "social", and regardless of their device (computer, mobile, tablet, TV) or location, people are connecting to online communities to share what they think about your brand, company, or organization.
