All, my 2nd "book" is an app called the +The Social Channel App and its page just shared the 1st experiential social media case study so I wanted to make sure you saw it!
 
Very exciting news! The first experiential case study is now live! Here's the presentation version, which has a link to the longer text version for those who want to drill down. This case study compares results of:
• Conventional brand-focused social media that shared content
• Experiential stakeholder-focused social media that shared content
• Experiential stakeholder-focused social media that interacted

Check out the amazing results!!

I would really love this feature; since we can already do RSS for tag combos, I imagine bundles would be an easy upgrade. TIA

Hi All, Just ran across your meetup and was delighted to see this community! I'm a former chef, and I adapt French and Italian dishes to paleo recipes for fun and health, have been living primal for four years and love it. I learned about paleo on a client engagement; my firm does experiential social media, and I've served a couple large fitness clients. I analyze 1000s of passionate fitness conversations. I look forward to sharing here!

Story
Tagline
Experiential Social Media & Social Business Strategy & Execution for Commercial, NFP & Government Enterprises
Introduction
I am passionate about helping people lead in high-stakes situations. For 30 years, I have advised organizations on their adoption of technologies, processes and behaviors that change the rules. I've worked on both sides of the desk, advising clients on using disruption as a consultant and leading transformation as a line executive (marketing). Some firms I've worked with: IBM, Sun Microsystems, PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Motorola, UBS, GM, Thomson... 

What I do that is unusual: create rapid innovation cycles and adoption tools, so clients can move ahead of the market; I know the technology, marketing and the diffusion of innovation. My clients constantly tell me that I can explain complicated or unknown technologies in ways they can understand and act on, as well as commercial applications of these technologies.

Today I lead CSRA Inc., a consultancy that advises on #experiential social media and social business strategy and execution. We get into the trenches with our clients and show them how to increase trust with people they care about, faster and cheaper than ever before. Some unusual facets of my experience:
  • CSRA just completed a case study in which experiential social media outperformed legacy (traditional) social media 4-to-1 in incoming ecommerce sessions and 7-to-1 in ecommerce pageviews. We do it by empowering people in reaching their goals, not by promoting our client. But the ecommerce site was our client's!
  • I often create & leverage proprietary IP (intellectual property) to facilitate adoption
  • I've managed multi-party engagements as a consultant as well as complex marketing programs as an executive, a rare combination
  • I have analytical & creative design experience, so I can create products, programs and new ventures that solve business problems
  • I've lived and worked in 6 countries... speak several languages
  • For SPEAKING/CONFERENCE qualifications (+ pdf/video/podcast links), see http://tinyurl.com/csrspeak

Work transformation from both sides of the desk: advise organizations as a consultant & transform firms as line executive. My second book will launch in beta Q4 2015. See: http://socialchannelapp.com

I've been to this Starbucks several times over the past year to work between meetings for a few hours each time. PLUS: It has a very nice veranda on a side street with nice trees and dappled sun afternoons, a real summer plus. MINUS: the HVAC is overcaffeinated.. it's always FREEZing. Obviously I've tried various tables, etc., but during fall I've even been driven outside in the 50s to "warm up." Bundle up if you're going to stay a while ;^(

Here for the first time at a #socialmedia #club; great food and beer on tap; beautiful patio on Cleveland, too; artsy interior. Really cool 2-person "booths" with curtains, imagine opera box for two.
