Why You Need a Social Media Makeover
Start Telling Your Story With Style
While many people may be good at managing their personal Facebook accounts, few of the organizations they work for are doing social media properly, even though it’s the biggest marketing tool ever.
Most companies and associations are only scratching the surface when it comes to their social media activity and it shows in the results they’re getting. It’s not just about getting more likes and follows, it’s about using social media and other forms of digital media to increase engagement and get results.

Surviving a Social Media Meltdown
Are You Ready If It Happens To You?
There’s never been a time that companies are in greater danger of having something go wrong in social media and having their brand and reputation damaged so badly it will take years to recover.
Despite that, too few business leaders are overly concerned about the dangers lurking in the social media use of their employees. 70% of employees are on at least one social media site every day. One embarrassing Facebook post, or piece of video on YouTube can send companies scrambling to explain and recover. Ask yourself what you would do if it happened to you.
We’re also seeing the first wave of people entering the workforce who’ve been involved in social media for most of their lives. They’re friends and followers of many of their customers. The coming years will bring more challenges related to social media as young workers integrate into the system and use social media to communicate and express opinions.
Grant Ainsley is one of Canada’s top media trainers and a former award-winning journalist. He’s discovered that only a fraction of companies are fully prepared to stop something bad from happening in social media and understand what they should say to the news media if it does. Most don’t have written procedures in place to deal with consumer complaints made in social media.

Ainsley’s presentation will result in companies understanding the risks they face and how to minimize them, reducing stress, embarrassment and potentially saving big dollars. He’ll also look into the future and let you know what you need to prepare for.
Talk Like a Leader
Great Ways For Managers and Teams to Communicate
It’s simply impossible to be a great leader if you can’t communicate well. Excelling in communication is consistently one of the highest-rated traits of great leaders, but unfortunately communication skills are not inherited, or often taught in business school.
Organizations also feel the pain. One study reported that poor communication in a company with 100 employees costs $525,000 a year. Poor direction from leaders and disjointed communication between their employees results in huge costs for any organization.
CEOs and their organizations need to work even harder on communication because many workers are talking less, while texting and emailing much more. It’s getting more difficult to get many employees, especially younger ones, to communicate face-to-face.
Ainsley’s keynote presentation shows leadership teams the secrets to communicating effectively, resulting in better bottom lines. He talks about the key traits of leaders who communicate well and how to prepare for, and have important and real conversations with employees, customers and others. He’ll provide immediate takeaways to allow CEOs and their organizations to start talking again, building trust and getting results.
Here are some of the issues addressed in Ainsley’s presentation:
As more young people enter the workforce who have spent most of their lives involved in social media, email and texting, getting teams to communicate is becoming more challenging and it won’t get any easier in the next decade.
