Amazing what you can do with a parking lot!
If you think of parking lots as drab, functional spaces that do not inspire creativity, you'd be right much of the time. But not all of the time. In this post, we identify some parking facilities around the world that stand out for their artistry and creative treatment of functional space.

Stay on top of key developments in #fintech  and #blockchain  – follow these influencers!
We may look back on 2016 as the year of the blockchain. Whether or not that comes to be, the blockchain discussion is breaking out of digital currency circles into a broader discussion of how to reinvent banking, secure online identities and a whole host of other fascinating applications. To compliment my list of #fintech …

Curating content should be the foundation of your social strategy. The benefits are many, but it can be time consuming to find and share consistently great content. Here is my comprehensive guide to help you curate great content.

When you show up, pay attention and help people in your network, good things happen.
I know it sounds redundant to say this, but I feel I have to. Social selling is really just networking. All of the strategies that work best in traditional, offline networking also work best in contemporary online social selling. I feel I need to say this because lots of people seem to think they should be …

It's been an ordeal, but I've learned some valuable lessons. Here's what happened to me over the past eight weeks.
‘You have nothing if you don’t have your health.’ I’ve heard this expression many times before and I believed I understood what it meant. But until I lost my health, it was hard to imagine what it felt like to face the abyss of ill health. This is the story of how my health slipped …

Digital social networks have become places that we increasingly go in order to stay informed and up-to-date on the top news and best thinking in our industry – whatever that industry is. Of course, journalists and trade media still play an important role, as do business leaders and subject-matter experts, in informing the discussion of …

Calgary's top social media personalities – the updated list!
Last week, I published a list of 100 social media influencers in Calgary and it sparked some insightful discussion. The post was widely shared and it generated the typical “thanks for including me” and “great to be among such great people” comments. It also generated its fair share of criticism, some of which was merited. I …

How do you keep up with developments in the rapidly evolving #fintech  and #finserv  world? Try following these influencers.
Anyone paying attention in the financial services (#finserv) world over the past couple of years can attest to the explosion of online discussion about financial technology (#fintech) and the reinvention of banking, investing and a host of other financial businesses.
