Social Intelligence in Social Media

At the University where I studied Economics and Sociology, we were taught that social intelligence is the ability of an individual to relate to social situations of daily life. Further, we were taught that social intelligence comprises the ability to understand other people and to react in such a way toward them that the desired […]

Social Media, Telling Stories and Sharing Experiences

Source: MyExtraLife Whenever you hear about social media, phrases like “shared experiences” are usually around the corner. And this is as real and as tangible as a bill board on Uhuru Highway, but more potent. Almost a fortnight ago, on a Sunday, I wrote a tweet saying that my girl goes to church for both […]

Customer care is where most companies get it wrong. Twitter and the various social networks […]

Financial Industry Blogging in Kenya

I wrote on why you need a Corporate Blog but for some reason I feel the need to reiterate the point once more but with a focus on the Banking sector. Finance has always been very close to my heart. Economics was my favourite course at the University, closely rivaled by sociology. I have read […]

Kenya Mainstream Media and Social Media Marriage

Tone of Channel

Mark Stephenson, the MD of Sandstorm Kenya – the World Renowned Luxury Bag Maker, sent me a DM on Tuesday the other week and it read “Tone of Channel – lets discuss.” So that Wednesday morning, I swung by his office and we had a long chat about Tone of Channel. Having been in Advertising […]
