Don't be distracted by the #Trump factor here. Much read wisdom from the incomparable +Conway Fraser, a consummate communications strategist. For pre-digitals and social media Luddites who think they are "authentic", consider that the requirements to be authentic have been rewritten, and now MUST include:

- Immediacy - you are expected to respond (to the good and the bad) in real time, inside the conversation - Even a 12 hour delay can be perceived as inauthentic, with the presumptionbeing either you are afraid to respond or you are off working with old school PR to craft a canned response

- Must mix Personal AND Business life - you need to show a bit of the real you and a purely professional persona isn't sufficient anymore to the self-appointed arbiters of social media

- Everyone has a Vote - social media participants now feel entitled to participate in what used to be internal/private decision making, purely because everything is now considered to be out there in the public domain

Media strategy is tricky. You can't afford to be outside the conversation, but consult real expert strategists if your reputation is important to you!

Inspiring letter to #Canada, by my friend +Vinod Rajasekaran, challenging us reach higher during +Canada150. A passionate and thoughtful reflection on innovation, community foundations and more. Is it any wonder that GG David Johnston selected this young leader to incubate the startup Rideau Hall Foundation? People like Vinod are why the world looks to Canada as a beacon of hope.

While at most recent meetings up in Ottawa, we discussed ways our government could procure more from innovative Canadian startups, a concept where Canada still lags other countires, such as US and UK. Thus it's really great to see some momentum to reaching this goal.
