Most failed projects have their root cause in a "failure to communicate." Back when Internet Web 1.0 was invented, it was primarily a one-way "bulletin board" conversation that still had value in providing a single point of reference for communications. But Web 2.0, based on tools that will be described in this workshop, provides an explosive opportunity for collaboration at all levels in a project team. Today, team members work in several time zones or even continents, and thus web based social media tools are even more valuable.
Today 500 million people are on Facebook, 76 million on Linked In, and Twiters are growing at an exponential rate. Social media expert, Rory will explain why it’s important to understand what social media will and won’t do and most importantly, how to use social media effectively for your projects, organization, professional and personal life. Rory will show you how to navigate through today’s popular social media sites and how to benefit from them. 

After attending this highly interactive and educational workshop, you will be able to:
  • Overcome the fear of blogs, wikis, podcasts, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter with a focus on their practical application as project management tools.
  • Know how to grow your personal network to generate business leads.
  • Use social media for effective communication for your team; marketing your project or product freely and effectively; building your's and your company’s brand; and follow up effectively with your team and your client.
  • Create a 30 minute to-do list to maximize your daily social media use.

A business motivational speaker, author, and self-discipline strategist whose insights have been shared on Oprah radio and featured in print media such as SUCCESS Magazine and Bloomberg's Business Week. Rory has degrees in Business Management, Leadership, and an MBA. He is also the Co-Founder of a multi-million dollar international sales training company, Southwestern Consulting.  As a two time world champion of public speaking finalist for Toastmasters International, Rory has shared his compelling “Take The Stairs” message on the same stage as John Maxwell, and he's done special programs for both Zig Ziglar and Dave Ramsey's companies.
