So, I've been a big fan of +Susan Scrupski's since we worked together at 7-8 years ago, and a quiet member of this community through several reinventions of itself. I've always been a great proponent of its purpose, but struggled to find my place and voice, since my primary business for the past five years has been running global alliances in Wipro, which hasn't been conducive to being a social business leader or active member of CAWW.

While my primary role continues to be running global alliances in Wipro (primarily with IBM), TWO exciting developments are taking shape that I thought I would share.

1. I tried to launch social business as a grass roots movement in Wipro in 2009. We grew our FREE Yammer network to 5000 members until the CIO office killed it. Five years and three CIOs later, on 20th August, Wipro launched our Social Enterprise Initiative on Yammer. All employees are enabled, but must voluntarily activate their account. In the last month, our network has growth by:
+ 31,231 Members
+ 2,596 Groups 
+ 97,412 Messages
+ 37,647 Likes
+ 4,808 Files
+ 82 Notes

2. Our very social CIO, who has really spearheaded this initiative, along with our impending rollout of Office365 to 120,000 employees, nominated me to be the Wipro Enterprise Social Officer. The nomination has been approved by our CHRO and CEO. They are now cooking up the job description. 

I was honored to be nominated, and am very excited about the potential. But of course, this is a "moonlighting role", in addition to my primary alliances "day job", so that means more work, more risk and not sure if it comes with any additional pay. 

I'd welcome feedback from others on what should be in the job description (and what should NOT), how should success be measured, examples of rollout plans, etc. 

This should be an exciting journey. I hope it will prove useful to share it with this community.

+Susan Scrupski Eh...not quite to the extent that +Erik Britt-Webb describes. My experience was more along the lines of learning the trade for my own interests and benefit, applying to my role at that time, and then later taking the opportunity to introduce the methods / concepts / tools on a broader scale.

I participated in some unofficial underground activity, but didn't have any unofficial expectations places on me to do
More with it than I already was.

It wasn't until I was hired into an official role in the space that I began to make things happen on such a scale.

Can I use HootSuite to post to my G+ profile without setting up a G+ Page? I can use HootSuite to post to my personal profile on Twitter and Facebook, but G+ seems to require a page.

I'm usually a little leary of working with dealerships - that old bad reputation, I guess. But I have to say, the folks at Toyota of Watertown went out of their way and over the top to understand our priorities, work with us on trade-in value of our old cars (we traded in 2 old for one new) and fit us in a new Sienna. They were amazingly clear and honest with the financial matters - from purchase price to prioritizing and costing the additional options. They were surprisingly direct in saying which options we did not need and which we should consider. I want to make special mention of Steven Skolnick, our "Customer Retention Manager". He was incredibly attentive to every detail and connected all the dots for us, so we felt like we had our "go to guy" to get everything done. Look forward to continuing our association with Toyota of Watertown as a happy customer.
