Editorial Reviews

COO Network for Good, Author Robin Hood Marketing - Katya Andresen
Buy this book, because it s THE single best guide to effectively navigating the social media landscape. There are many self-declared gurus out there, but few real visionaries. Geoff is the rare real deal, and his book is comprehensive, fascinating and packed with fresh insights.
Director, global social media, General Motors - Christopher Barger
"Winning in social media is not about technologies and tools, it's really about being part of prevailing culture -- and you don't change your culture by staying inside your own walls. Geoff is one of the rare ones who understands the difficulties of culture shift, and can help you think about what you do both outside and inside your organization to ensure your success."
