Boyd Neil's Summary

I believe the social web is changing communications, marketing, reputation management, politics, journalism, democracy, personal relationships and ‘things’ irrevocably . . . and for the better. So after 30 years as a corporate communications professional I now handle primarily social media assignments.

For example, over the past five years, I have conducted social media audits, and created and implemented social media and digital strategies for organizations in the oil and gas, financial, insurance, nuclear, packaged goods and non-profit sectors. I have counselled a half-dozen clients on managing social media crises and reputation assaults, and spent half of 2013 on a six-month gig as head of H+K’s New York social and digital team, commuting weekly between Toronto and New York . . .while also teaching at Ryerson University and Seneca College.
