STT Booms into Toronto


The Social Tech Training and NetChange Week 2009 have come and gone, but after the dust settled what remains is a strong and growing community of emerging leaders filled with new ideas for innovation in their digital campaigns, tools, and programs, and maybe even something a whole lot bigger.

A Message for STT'ers from Don Tapscott

Day 3 of Social Tech Training kicked off with a specially recorded video address from world renowned digital futurist Don Tapscott.

The author of Growing Up Digital and Wikinomics sent a special message to the leaders of STT participating organizations, executive and communications directors, who are often from a different demographic than their web teams. Don drives home the critical importance of culture change and adaptation, and posits that our rapidly shifting world demands those qualities of any organization that hopes to be successful in the digital age.
