    If you think social media is a fad for young people or where you post photos of what you ate for lunch you’re hurting your business. Social media is part of the multi-trillion dollar online economy that increasingly contributes more to GDP than traditional sectors. In this talk, Dionne busts the myths that stop leaders being social and shows them how to use social to lead, innovate and grow business by tapping into the global brain.
