At last, we reach the end. For me, we saved the best for last. Kevin wanted to start here, in hopes that what we said would encourage you to come along. Instead, I view this as a gift for doing so. In day 12, we want to inspire you to be better marketers, more happy and creative. So we go to a trusted place, a favorite place. One that challenges us and changes us as well, TED. We don’t just like TED in our offices. We kind of swoon over it. What’s not to like? There are brilliant people sharing the topics about which they are passionate and expert.

I am speaking of DNFTT – or “Do not feed the trolls.” In fact, in an online community, trolling is usually rapidly risen above […]
A long long time ago in a land far away (New Jersey to be specific), I went to a training class – back in the days when companies really invested in the people, not simply the discrete tasks they would perform. I learned a few of the most valuable lessons I would ever have. A […]
Digitally savvy customers are increasingly using the Internet not only to seek information, but also to interact with companies, create solutions and make decisions. Smarter companies are using an emerging concept we call Strategic Service Delivery to enable customers to use data and resources more effectively to drive better customer engagement and experiences.

Link to PDF of McKinsey/McAfee interview Wanted to recap some of the great soundbytes – none out of context I hope from a McKinsey interview with Andrew McAfee, principal research scientist at the Center for Digital Business at the MIT Sloan School of Management on collaboration.
