Linda Cheung, co-founder of CubeSocial and a board member of Enterprise M3 LEP, said:
“The business environment has changed significantly over the last two decades with developments in technology. The emergence of the internet and social media has brought great opportunities and challenges for businesses. Social media is constantly evolving. What worked as little as six months ago may not be effective now.”
Linda added: “Social networks now exceed 2.5 billion users. Over 70% of internet users use social media. These figures are expected to grow. Yet less than 10% of CEOs are endorsed for social media on LinkedIn. If there’s a communication channel where customers and competitors, employees and investors, partners and stakeholders are spending their time, shouldn’t more leaders have the critical skill to explore this channel?”
Linda Cheung is a recognised thought leader on social media and co-founder of Connectegrity, the award-winning team behind social media startup CubeSocial.
