With all the buzz about being open and transparent these days, do you ever wonder how much is too much information?
When is what you’re sharing online valuable to your business, and when is it risky to your personal life?

This episode of Wedge15TV will surprise you, and leave you thinking.

Today’s treat is an interview with Don Tapscott, CEO of The Tapscott Group think tank and a dear friend.

As one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impact of technology, Don advises business and government leaders around the world.

Most recently, Don is the co-author of Radical Openness Four Unexpected Principles for Success.
He is among the leaders that I follow and whose books have inspired and challenged how I do business.

And although we don’t always agree on the value of being open, we sure do share a passion for the power of the NetGeneration and our digital economy. Don’s thoughts are provocative and his ideas worth contemplating.

That is what today’s interview is all about.

And we want to hear from you.

    Great interview Gloria! I met Don last weekend at the UWI Gala! Small world:) We were at the same table…didn’t get to speak to him much so it was great to hear more of his thoughts on here. Opening up and having difficult conversations IS my business…hahahah So sharing that part of me as it relates to my brand is what I use to decide what to share vs. what not to share. Thanks for this!:)

      Here here sister. I share the same sentiment, and one of the things I’m most passionate about imparting on this next generation of entrepreneurs is being authentic, open and transparent about what you stand for, who you are and the difference your business makes. It’s certainly got its challenges when we look to the way people mistreat one another online, but it’s a changing world, and I truly believe that without sharing who you are as part of your brand, you’re missing the boat. It’ll take another few years to be very obvious, but I share this episode to provide food for thought about it :) Thanks for your comments.
