Guests for this week:

Lucas Shaffer - (Lucas, the ultra cool entrepreneur in Columbus, Ga. - Founder of photofoodblog.com and owner of Stand And Stretch - a Social Media firm.  As the onwer of S&S, I work with small businesses and organizations to build media literacy and help them cultivate and grow communities around their vision.  I am also a blogger, podcaster for htttp://filmaholics.net and SM conversationalist.  I am married with a son who turns 1 3/15 and completed my Master’s in CompSci at Columbus State Univ Dec 2010.  Enough?  I’m also a sushi freak. )

Angela Shelby - (I am a certified Project Manager with over 15 years of delivering large scale enterprise-wide software developments and infrastructure projects. I also have a passion for working on entertainment projects and have worked with American Idol, The President’s Cup, various authors, comedians, etc. I’ve lived in 11 states and 7 countries.)

Adrienne Graham - Adrienne is the CEO of Hues Consulting & Management Inc, a fast growing firm that serves fully funded start ups and small to mid sized companies on a growth pattern. The company specializes in technology, manufacturing, engineering, finance, energy & power, and healthcare. She is also the Founder & CEO of Empower Me Corporation, a media, publishing & professional development organization that helps fast track corporate risers and entrepreneurs live their best professional lives. She is the author of two books and the voice behind Views From the Top Radio Show. She’s also a contributing writer for Forbes.com.

Topics (if there is a topic you’d like to discuss, add it here!)

A.  Most people get social can be fun, but can social help a company?
Just a new place to reach people
Let people engage with a connect to your business with a different tool
Be part of the conversation about your brand

B.  Do you have examples (self or client) of how new social tools had a business application?  Lead generation, customer service?
(Adrienne) Blog Talk Radio as a platform for business and individuals to promote a message and establish a brand. And the importance of going the extra mile with editing, formatting, etc to look & sound professional.

C. The podcast uses Google docs for the outline/prep document.  Why Google docs?  
It’s all about the use case - if you don’t need it to be secure and you have an offline backup, great for collaborating
Good/bad?  Is it ok that it requires a Google email account?
I switched to an Android and had to give them a gmail address to set up - annoying.
Great Posting from Darren on iPhone and Android for a BlackBerry user

D. iPad 2 3/11/2011

Angela - Last year, I worked with Alabama State Representative Dr. Thad McClammy, in a water drive campaign for Haiti. This was a grassroots effort that resulted in 1 million bottles of water that were donated to Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake. Food for the Poor, which feeds over 2 million people/day throughout Latin America and the Caribbean stepped in and transported and delivered the water. We are now in the process of sharing the success of this phenomenal grassroots effort that was initiated by three women and had an impact not only in Alabama, but across the country as others join in their efforts to help (Laura Pincus Hartman, Randall Robinson), which finally impacted another country. Were getting the word out about what these three women did out of the compelling compassion, empathy and conviction that they felt for other human beings. This is really a story about the human spirit and a “yes we can” generation. The women will be interviewed by WSFA-12 Montgomery and will also be featured on an internet radio broadcast called “Praise Party with Pastor Ced”. We hope that they will receive the Presidential Service Award as well as other humanitarian awards and accolades.

Adrienne - Get my new book Get Recruited: Secrets from a Top Recruiter on Using Unconventional Tactics to Get Noticed in an Inconvenient Economy, author and top Recruiter, and watch out for the Get Recruited ½ day Workshops and Weekend Immersion Retreats coming to select cities (check the website for dates).
