The books that Molly mentions are Alone Together by Sherry Turkle and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
What do you think? Do you agree with Molly and Euan or do you have other views?
I am a public speaker, writer and consultant and feel lucky to have become passionate so early about something that is changing the world so fundamentally. Twelve years ago, while working in a senior position at the BBC, I was one of the first to introduce what have since become known as social media tools into a large, successful organisation. I have subsequently had seven years of unparalleled experience working with many organisations including BP, The World Bank and NATO to help them try to do the same.
My book Organizations Don’t Tweet - People Do was published last year.
