We are thrilled to announce that Don Tapscott has agreed to deliver a closing keynote address to Social Media Week Glasgow, via video conference. Don will present some key insights from his most recent book Macrowikinomics – Rebooting Business and the World and will take questions from the audience and submitted across social media channels.
Don Tapscott is one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, marketing and the impact of technology and new media on business and society. He is CEO of the Tapscott Group and Chairman of the think tank Moxie Software and was founder and chairman of the international think tank New Paradigm before its acquisition by Moxie. He is Vice Chair of Spencer Trask Collaborative Innovations, a new company building a portfolio of companies in the collaboration and social media space.
Don is the author of fourteen widely read books about information technology in business and society. His most recent book Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World, co-authored by Anthony D. Williams, was released in September 2010 to tremendous acclaim from business executives and the media. Macrowikinomics is the follow up to Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything (2006) also co-authored by Anthony D. Williams. Wikinomics was an international bestseller, #1 on the 2007 management book charts, and on The New York Times and BusinessWeek bestseller lists. Translated into 20 languages, Wikinomics was a finalist for the prestigious Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Best Business Book Award and was chosen as one of the best books of the year by a number of publications, including The Economist.
We cannot express just how thrilled we are that Don has agreed to join us and round off a thrilling week. Its not often that you get the chance to listen to one of the worlds most important management thinkers and have the opportunity to put a question to him.
We hope that you will join us at Skypark for Don’s keynote and for a networking drink to close out Social Media Week Glasgow.
