  • Youtube
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Blogs

A simple and free tool to create animated stories

Great – Look forward to seeing the first examples of how conference and trade show marketers are using it! I’ll test it myself over the weekend, I am sure ;-)

Social technologies to improve internal communications

More and more companies start to realize that the philosophy and technologies of social media can improve not only external communication or recruitment. Applied cleverly, social media can take your internal communication, sharing of ideas, collaboration and know-how management to the next level.
