Social Media and HR: Tweets from Impact 99

Social Media and HR: Tweets from Impact 99

On October 6, I attended Impact99, a one day experiential conference for Business and HR professionals who are ready to integrate social media and HR.  By the way, if you’re not ready, in my opinion, you better get there fast!

The following are some insights that I tweeted throughout the day. Stay tuned for blogs inspired by the great business leaders who shared what they do…
