Who Are You And Why Should I Care?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Reputation. Authenticity. Transparency. Integrity.

Amidst all the corporate scampering to ensure uniformity of “message” across all media platforms, one critical piece often is left out. The individuals. The old adage of their being no “I” in team, neglects to remember that there is, however, a “me”. In forgetting to connect each individual within an organization with its efforts, generally the whole venture will fail. This session tackles the question of why your personal story matters, and how to integrate your personal motivation into your everyday business life to achieve maximum success.
