Social Media roared into the C-suite several years ago but, just as there is a great range of leadership styles, there is also a great range in the way that leaders use social media. In this seminar Host, Heather Ferguson of Whale Content Studio talks to Kyle Vucko, CEO of Indochino and Tonie Chaltas, Chief Operating Officer of H&K Strategies to get the insiders view of social media and the ways it is used in the C-Suite today. We’ll also look at the first 100 days and talk about how social media can help a new CEO win friends and influence others.
