We had 10 minutes, and it was plenty to grab ahold of Social Media concepts for business. Using the theme of abundance, these professional coaches made it easy, using a new (to them) format of “Open Space Technology.”
I was the facilitator of a session named: SOCIAL BUSINESS FOR CONNECTION, LIVELIHOOD and FUN for the West Michigan Coaches Forum, along with colleague, Peggy Caputo.
So much was generated in a short time including networking and generating business planning connections. We all jumped right in to help each other learn to apply social media lessons we’ve been learning, with energy!
SO. MUCH. WIN! ABUNDANCE!
