As you no doubt have realised I’ve been asked to talk about “Professional Networking” at the RIBA at the end of October.
The audience will be a group of around 80 people from the construction and related industries who in some way help the RIBA, by sitting on their committees, for example. It’s a thankyou to them from the RIBA and I’d very much like to use my 15 mins to share something really useful.
One of the returning themes of my previous “what shall I talk to the RIBA about was stories, and another was cold hard facts. So I’m looking for your cold, hard, factual stories.
What have you achieved for your business (see, I’m talking hard) with tools such as Twitter, Blogs and Linkedin in particular (I think these are the simplest) that you would not have done otherwise?
What is the Return on Investment (if you can calculate it!) remember to think like a cynic. What money have you made? What potential have you tapped into?
Ok, please post your thoughts below, if you’re willing to be identified. I admit I think if you aren’t I’d be surprised, but you can also send them to me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m going to use the most compelling in my presentation, and if I get a big response I’ll make a separate stack of them for sharing with you all and the universe.
If you have suggestions for visuals and links these will be most welcome – think “PresentationZen”
Over to you!
