Today, Dov will be discussing the HOW of the social enterprise at the South by Southwest Interactive festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas at 11.30 AM (CT). This engagement is exciting for us on so many levels: LRN is making its debut at the SXSW Interactive Festival which attracts an estimated 20,000 attendees and the festival is renowned for unveiling new applications and websites, so the opportunity that we have to share a powerful ideabecomes even more meaningful. A book signing will follow the presentation.
Dov will be reading from HOW and elaborating on the fact that since we are in an era where everything that happens can now be forwarded, tweeted, and blogged about, our behavior- how we do what we do- matters more than ever and in ways it never has before. The increased democratization of organizations and participation of individuals in how companies are led, governed, and operated is welcome but only if we focus on HOW genuine, creative, loyal, innovative and valuable our social interactions are, not how many page views, followers and friends we can attract.
When we receive the video of Dov’s presentation from SXSW, we will be sure to share it with you so stay tuned. Meanwhile, here is a link to a visual narrative of Dov’s SXSW journey so far on Storify:http://storify.com/LRN/how-hit-south-by-southwest
In the last year, HOW has been showcased at platforms as varied as The Economist, the Clinton Global Initiative and now SXSW- testament to the reach and power of our idea that principled behavior is the surest path to success and significance in business and life.
