Can Social Media Help in Your OD Practice? (05/13/2010)

Have you heard of social media?  Tired of hearing of social media?

What is it?   Why is it so important?   Is it important?  Or is it just a fad?

And, do I need to care?  Is this something we can use in OD?  At all?

Our presenters, Suzanne and Ed, will step us through these timely questions and more.  IF there is a connection, we’ll find it together on Thursday night.
