Interviewed on SAP Survey by Shel Israel.

Today is one of my lucky days - No not because the Giants won . I was interviewed by Shel Israel for his series SAP

Global Neighbourhoods - Social Media's impact on business & culture.

Twitter made this happen. I met Shel on Twitter way before I thought I would help my company determine that they needed a Social Media person. I love meeting people and I read "Naked Conversations" the book Shel Israel co-authored with Robert Scoble. Thank you Shel for listening to my story !

I acknowledged in my Dec Blog post announcing my new job as the Social Media Person at Network Solutions that I got a lot of help from the Social Media community. I have been meeting some great people on and off line and having fun at the same time.

If you want to read more about how people have helped here are some links :

Great interview with Shel. Having met and talked with you, I know that your desire to reach out to Network Solution's customers is genuine. I also admire your grace under pressure. Well done.

You weathered the storm so well! None of us want to experience it, but on the flip side it underlines the value of your new role. (job security?!! :) )
