FIR Speakers and Speeches: Shel Holtz on open employee access to social media

blogworld2011logoFIR co-host Shel Holtz delivered a presentation at Blogworld and New Media Expo 2011 in Los Angeles on November 5, 2011, on why organizational leaders should love, not block, employee social media access.

This is the audio, recorded by the good folks at Blogworld (and hence the large file size). The video is also available over on Shel’s blog.

This audio file, along with the video, is only one of over 100 recorded sessions from BlogWorld Los Angeles 2011. You can get all of the videos – plus nearly 100 bonus interviews and other bonus content – by picking up the entire Virtual Ticket.
