The Now Revolution: Making Your Business Faster, Smarter & More Social

Thanks to Big River Advertising for bringing social media guru Jay Baer (@JayBaer) to Richmond, Va., on Oct. 4, for an informative and entertaining primer on communication.

Happy 10th anniversary to our friends at Big River Advertising who celebrated by bringing Baer to the River City.

Baer, co-author of the recently published “The Now Revolution,” shared insights on communication best practices, including “seven shifts to make your business faster, smarter and more social.”

Among Baer’s bits of social media wisdom:

  • “We can’t call a committee meeting to respond to a Tweet.”
  • “We’ve got to get everyone operating with one head and one heart.”
  • “We need to start hiring for passion and training for skills.”

Here’s a video recap from a past Baer presentation.

He’s on the speaking circuit this fall, and Public Relations Society of America members can catch Baer in person at the 2011 International Conference in Orlando later this month.

Here’s a Storify recap from the Big River event.
