Flowtown has published a cool illustration of the History of Marketing.
Social profile research and discovery company Flowtown has published some findings about :
- how employees use social media
- which companies have the most “social” employees.
Each company’s ranking is determined by its employees’ overall social media activity, including the average number of connections across various networks.
Some great publicity ART.

The Next Level
What Insiders Know About Executive Success
By Scott Eblin, www.eblingroup.com
Much as Good to Great described what separates top companies from the rest, The Next Level: What Insiders Know About Executive Success shows executives what separates leadership success from failure at the next level.
Every day, high performers are tapped to be executives and then left alone to figure out how to succeed in their new role. When this happens, most executives rely on strengths that served them well earlier in their careers.
As executive coach Scott Eblin explains, this is why 40 percent of them fail. Moving successfully to the executive level requires knowing which behaviors and beliefs to let go, as well as which new ones to pick up. Like having a personal executive coach, this confidence-building book outlines a program for success based on frank advice from accomplished senior executives on what to do and to avoid.
Pick Up / What To Do
Let Go Of / Avoid
