We will read and discuss “It’s Even Worse Than It Looks”, by Thomas Mann and Norman Orenstein, a liberal and a conservative. Amazon’s book description tells of how our main political parties have given up traditions of compromise and that they now endanger our system of constitutional democracy. The authors offer ideas for how the media should better educate the public and how the public must begin to view critical issues strategically rather than emotionally. Gerry Lapidus will lead the first class and volunteers will be requested to lead the subsequent discussions. Class meets Mondays 11/12 - 12/17.

When building social media strategies, marketers often idolize and emulate companies who are leading the pack in their respective industries. Unfortunately, it's very common for marketers to concentrate only on external efforts and skip right over what these organizations have accomplished internally.This presentation will cover how to build scalable internal communications and learning programs designed to educate employees about social media use and associated guidelines. It will also cover how to tap into collective employee networks in both B2B and B2C companies. You'll leave armed with big ideas designed to help you create positive internal change within your organization.Brandon Chesnutt currently serves as Identity’s social media director and is responsible for directing the firm’s social media practice group, as well as providing clients with strategic counsel and support. In 2010, Brandon was recognized by Crain’s Detroit as a member of the “Twenty in Their 20's".
