Comments24/10/2016 #6 Mohammed SultanJavier beBee thanks for sharing your creative thoughts.Successful entrepreneurs never fail,but may regress toward mediocrity then bounce back very quickly .They see an opportunity in every setback and positivity in a sea of bad news..Their natural tendency is to fail forward.The challenge facing most successful entrepreneurs who achieve initial success in a short period of time is to have the right people with broad management skills.To sustain success,a start up must be not only built but also managed,and to deliver growth it must be controlled..Successful management of any start up,and beBee is not exception, will require integration of the creativity of marketers(who can manage their contents) together with the rigorous analytic of researchers through an innovative process.Those are considered the "engine" of value creation inside any company.

Comments25/10/2016 #10 Sarah ElkinsThanks for this great write-up, Neil Hughes! To share this experience with some of my favorite online personalities - but in person - is going to be outstanding. Can't wait to see John White, MBA again, and to meet Heather R. Younger, J.D., CCXP, Karthik Rajan, Sarah (Sally) McCabe, Chris Spurvey, and Dustin McKissen in person. And those are the facilitators! On top of this great line-up, we get to learn from Aaron Skogen, Amy Blaschka, Zach Messler, and more. I'm giddy. Seriously giddy.24/10/2016 #9 David B. GrinbergKudos on another exemplary read, @Neil Hughes. It sounds like @Sarah Elkins has put together a wonderful conference with an impressive list of speakers. As I've previously written, folks should not rely on social media networking alone because, while helpful, it will only get one so far.
To be an outstanding networker requires taking the leap from online networking to offline networking in-person. That's really how one solidifies meaningful relationships. Unfortunately, this is becoming less and less commonplace in today's fast-paced mobile, digital and virtual world -- especially among Millennials and Gen Z.
Therefore, I commend Sarah for taking the time, effort and energy to arrange this conference. The only downside I see is the cost. Then again, one can't always put a price tag on the long-term value of building in-person networking relationships.23/10/2016 #6 Prakashan B.V@Neil Hughes: Thanks for this article..Good to know in detail about NLV..I like this idea! of meeting the online connections and getting to know each other more through such a great initiative viz. NLV . Sitting here in Bangalore I have already done it with some of the geographically separated connections when they were passing by this part of the world..And to @John White, MBA and many other friends participating in this...Have great time.23/10/2016 #5 Mohammed SultanNeil Hughes.To be face -to -face with online friends is an interesting experience.But people interest in conferences goes beyond our online dreams to the realities of our markets.It goes beyond personal preferences to seeking diverse,specialized and multi-faced information that no single platform can offered. When you go off-line you will be surprised to know how far our textual databases differs from the realty of a numerical world.

Comments22/10/2016 #8 CityVP ManjitWe can become so enamored with technique that we can lose the connection between storytelling and human spirit, and this buzz brings that human connection back into sharp focus. It is not that we must incorporate storytelling in our speech, but that first we rekindle the art of storytelling as storytellers ourselves. Storytelling as content marketing is a very different proposition to storytelling as a personal flow. Modern marketing has turned us into a society of manipulators looking for some form of advantage in the war for attention, whereas connection reminds us that storytelling is something that comes from our communal response than a marketing response. Young people are getting smarter than Gen X and Boomers in this regard, they can smell a spin or an attempt to market us with storytelling, and a storyteller who is first focused on being in flow with narrative.22/10/2016 #5 Susan Rooks@Paul Kearley, you know you're right and so do we! Stories are what we remember.
I've been a presenter for more than 20 years, and even when teaching such exciting topics as American grammar, I use stories and humor. And I also do not use PowerPoint or any other electronic media. Because I'm teaching a specific skill, I do give out workbooks, but I still include stories and humor, mainly to keep my students awake.
Great post, and thanks!21/10/2016 #4 Harvey LloydGreat post @Paul Kearley. Amy Cuddy was a great Ted Talk. Engaging folks is different today. They truly want to experience what you have, when they commit to your organization. With no story to present today's employees feel lost. I am a deeply pragmatic person. Storytelling is a skill i am trying to develop. Funny at times.21/10/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergThanks for sharing this "sweet honey" Paul. You are absolutely correct that effective presentations and speeches are often based on great storytelling, at least in part. This is because people can relate to stories which exemplify the human condition and spirit. Thanks for the excellent advice. Buzz on, my friend!

Aunque soy una lady mallorquina.21/10/2016 #16 Michele WilliamsFabulous! The example of the job candidate for the car company is a great way to explain the value of beBee's integrated approach in the US. where the need for connection is high but there is much folk wisdom is about keeping work and life separate (segmentation). There is actually some interesting research on different preferences for segmentation in social media, by Nancy Rothbard and colleagues, that I will share that over the weekend. beBee may help people bridge the tensions between "bringing your whole self to work" and segmentation.21/10/2016 #12 Brian McKenzieCongrats on getting onto Virgin site! Sir Branson's interests are wide and varied; not just communications, space, travel and business development but racing, healthcare, fitness/wellness and protection of human rights. It is indeed interesting to know the secrets to connect the right 'who' to get things launched, created and funded.21/10/2016 #9 Deb LangeI agree &Javier Bebee . In the work that I do I intentionally invite people to share about their lives, their dreams, their doubts their personal experiences. Etc I have always found when helping someone with an issue at work, there is often a mirroring of the issue in the persons personal life. It has not mattered whether I have helped the person overcome the challenge at work or in their personal life- as when they do overcome the challenge, the success moves into both areas. Most people however, have been brought up to believe of the separation of work and our personal lives and many think it is not effective to talk about our personal passions. Also many think it harms their reputation. I have always found the opposite, just as you have here. Although it is probably another bold step to share our personal
Lives publicly. For some people at work it is very hard to do it in one to one settings, let alone publicly.21/10/2016 #7 Lisa Gallagher" The problem is how do you connect with someone from out of the blue without any form of context? By finding common ground." Couldn't agree more, great article. @Pamela L. Williams, great point about your brand and professional reputation, I'd add personal reputation which can be intertwined. I'm glad you pointed that out Pam!21/10/2016 #5 CityVP ManjitLets take an example of an entrepreneur called Steve Jurvetson. I never set out to make him a professional connection and it does not serve either of us if we did. Yet over a decade ago I came across his personal blog called "The J Curve". The last entry in that blog was 2008. Jurvetson had not perished as an entrepreneur/venture capitalist - by then social media had taken over where once there was the blog. What I found most compelling and special about Steve Jurvetson got lost in the wash of media, as it escalated and exponentially grew, and grew and grew.
Yet what was Jurvetson's last post on HIS blog? Was it a profound statement about the state of the venture capital industry back then? A sharing of a major deal? A fantastic new opportunity? His theory on success or leadership or values?
No, it was simply Steve Jurvetson expressing his love for rockets. Am I going to explore rockets myself with the long ball aim of getting in with him? No. I am not fascinated by this business connections, or his success or his professional standing but by the way he thinks. What he is passionate about adds context to the way he thinks and in that context there are insights how such a mind resides in the high-speed world of Silicon Valley. The same is true with Peter Thiel, except Thiel has been much more personal since the Republican convention when he spoke to a Republican audience, his coming out as a gay man. That is as personal as one can get and that was done in front of a prime time television audience. Affinity is best meaning making rather than money making. There are also VC's who have kept up their personal blog presence such as AVB's Fred Wilson.
The reality is that I have come across entrepreneurs on beBee - they are here but for sure I would welcome a tonne more.21/10/2016 #4 Pamela L. WilliamsI went to the site and had one issue: there wasn't a beBee button to share. That being said; this is lesson I have learned in the last year. Prior to that I had little social media presence. I learned a lot while on LinkedIn but have seriously considered 'my brand' since being on beBee. I once wrote an article that in the short version questioned the use of branding in connection with individuals. It took a while before I accepted the relevance of having a brand which boils down to being your professional reputation on a global scale. A very relevant article Javier.21/10/2016 #3 Randy KehoMass Communication no longer refers solely to traditional media outlets. We have all become members of the mass media. That may not sit well with those who enjoy trashing the media. They now have to accept a portion of the blame for the so-called campaigns of manipulation and misinformation.
Everyone has an agenda, whether they realize it or care to admit it.
Bloggers and network users are rushing to disseminate their opinions on an endless number of topics on platforms such as this. As a result, I would advise them to carefully consider what they're "broadcasting" to the new cyber world. It's just as easy, if not easier, to make enemies as it is friends, not to mention "Big Brother" may be watching, just ask Hillary Clinton about her emails.
What would your newfound golfing or cycling contact, not to mention your boss or potential employer, think of your online presence? Are they Trump or Clinton supporters? Would they think you party a bit too much? Are you sharing privileged information?
If these are concerns, be careful. As they say, it's easier to maintain existing business than it is to find new business.Your personal brand could be jeopardized.
