Social Media Panel


This morning I had the opportunity to speak at WSU Comm week on a panel with Suzanne Tobias from the Wichita Eagle and Shawn Hilferty from KWCH. We spoke about how we use social media in our day-to-day work environment. Being the verbose guy I am, I went on the longest (sorry fellow panelists). But I think the panel was well-received. (I haven’t seen an tweets or blog posts to convince me otherwise.)

On Wednesday, I’m participating in another quasi-panel for PRSA students, also about social media. Then, on Friday, my colleague Jen and I are presenting to the Anabaptist Communicators National Conference about – you guessed it – goat cheese. No, just kidding. It’s about social media.

Wichita’s a small town, so I’m hoping that I can keep this speaking gig going for as long as possible, before people start (if they aren’t already) getting weary of me.

If you’re a PRSA member, Anabaptist communicator or a talented sneak, stop by one of the presentations this week. I’d love to have you.

David Kamerer snapped this photo of me with my friend Andy. Bobby Rozzell suggested I host a caption-creation contest. Well, consider the contest open. The prize is TBD, but will definitely be worth the effort.

    Sorry, @a**hole, but my sweater is just a little more in the hue of Twitter blue than yours.

    Now, Andy, I thought we talked about this- I can wear this ’cause my wife said it looked okay. What’s your excuse?

    Todd Ramsey demonstrates the subtle but always effective ring-finger flip-off.

    (BTW, love the wonderful photo of me under the interrogation projector light. Yikes.) 😛

    What did you mean by “quasi-panel” at PRSA Student Day? HMMMMM?!?

    Ha, Andy! I just meant it wasn’t a panel, but more of a group-presentation.

    No disrespect intended!
