Open Space on Speed: Social Business with the Coaches, Results! Video

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!

  15. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way
    too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
