Power Friending with Amber Mac
How can you harness the online world to effectively grow your career? What’s the big deal about Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks? How can social networking help you in your career? Are there real ways to engage and grow your social network online to the benefit of your career? Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Amber Mac, social networking guru, media expert and author as they examine the importance of social networking in your career and discuss Amber’s new book, Power Friending.
“If you haven’t adopted social media in a significant way you risk shutting out the best and most powerful communications channel we’ve ever known.” (Amber Mac)
Amber Mac is a technology host, journalist, and strategist, with experience both online and offline. She writes a regular column for The Globe & Mail, Yahoo! Tech, American Express Open Forum, among other outlets. She maintains a popular blog and speaks exclusively with The Lavin Agency at keynotes across North America about how to use social media to build community and customer loyalty online. In June 2010, Amber launched her first book, Power Friending, about how to use social media to grow your business.
“Amber Mac is a virtual Swiss Army Knife of networking: she displays an endless amount of enthusiasm and energy that nearly crackles off the page. More importantly, she demonstrates a deep and practical understanding of the necessity of extending one’s personal and professional presence online.” (Miami Herald, 2010)
