How will your customer contact you today? In the store, via the phone, on your web site, read a tweet, friend you on Facebook? There is no way to know. In this presentation, e-commerce pioneer Terry Jones gives your audience the keys to unlock the mystery of how to deal with today's omni channel customer. While face-to-face contact isn't going away, companies that lack an effective online relationship strategy are being left behind. Jones vast online experience can educate your audience in all phases of the digital conversation from search to social media, using real-world examples in creating Travelocity, Kayak and helping dozens of other companies.


It’s a new world out there…A world where ‘the office’ is anywhere and communications is constant; where the pace of change is staggering and the ‘wired generation’ is entering the work force.  In the new world, how do you lead?  The basic principles of good leadership haven’t changed in hundreds of years; but, in this new world, how we APPLY them MUST change.  Today’s new worker has been raised in the digital age, has been multi-tasking since the age of 3 and has been online for most of their life.  How can companies most effectively communicate with, lead, and leverage this very different employee base?
Terry Jones has led both large corporations and small startup companies.  As a CEO, board member and consultant, his innovative leadership style has helped reshape an industry.  In this program, he offers concise and actionable insights into how leadership is changing in this technology-driven world.

You’ll come away from this book enriched, even if you just only dip into it in 10-minute snatches now and again.
