The guy is a true hero to many of us in the business communications industry.
A tireless supporter of others, a true gentleman and a font of wisdom and knowledge, Shel Holtz is one of my personal “one day I hope to be even half as good as him” type of individuals.
Luckily, I have finally got to meet him and during a discussion in a noisy bar we entered into a discussion about 3D virtual worlds and the presentation I gave at the #iabc09 World Conference.
So I stuck my new and much-loved easi-speak mic in front of him and captured some more gems from the man.
The result lies before you: be gentle with that audio file, Virginia!
You also want to do yourself a MASSIVE favour and buy a copy of his latest book, Tactical Transparency: How Leaders Can Leverage Social Media to Maximize Value and Build their Brand.
It is a MASTERPIECE of clear, concise and up-to-date information about how transparency, which is the new world order of business, needs to be managed and how to do so.
I LOVE the book and cannot recommend it highly enough!
