9:00 – 11:00 am PRE-CONFERENCE SESSION: Creation: Causing Workability In A World That Seems To Call For Separation (Additional Fee Required)
Seamus Ford
If you are at work on a commitment for the world, you are dealing with communication of your commitment with people of many different faiths, nationalities, beliefs. And you are most likely using multiple platforms to communicate, including social media. While we strive to increase interest in and membership into our commitments, often our communication unknowingly alienates large swaths of humanity. In two hours with Seamus Ford, Landmark’s Global Internet and Social Media Manager, we will address communication with a focus on social media that calls for action, while being inclusive of all people, everywhere.
