Media Bullseye Roundtable 2014.8 with Guest Co-Host Shel Holtz

Media Bullseye Roundtable

In this episode of the Roundtable, we welcome Shel Holtz, co-founder of the FIR Podcast Network, to discuss three topics:

—Why the C-Suite doesn’t get social media—and what can be done about it, including teaching social media advocates more about business.

—How to use internal influencers to augment announcements by senior management, including a look at the similarities between internal and external communications.

Whether the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge represents a successful model to follow, and how other organizations are likely to react to the viral reach of this program.
