Speech Topics

What do start-ups and technology companies who have been living with social technologies for six years know about how social media will change recruiting, training, teams, and how you treat your alumni?

In the case of Ning, she took it from an idea and turned it into one of the top 10 social platforms in the world. What does this take and how can you bring it into your organization?

Why do people love social games and how can you take their principles and use them in your organization?

When you look at how popular culture has been fundamentally changed by social technologies and media, it’s profound. How will arts, entertainment, politics, and even sports be transformed by social technologies over the next five years?

For companies and brands, Gina believes the first generation of social technologies was about creating a conversation. The next generation will be about transforming talk into action.
