I was honored to be invited again this year by Darrel Cole of Parsons Brinckerhoff join his “Digital Influence” panel at the ACEC California annual conference 4/8/14.
One of the organizers asked us,
“How long have you two worked together?”
“We don’t; we met on Twitter.”
The look of surprise on her face was a testiment to the fact that relationships built on social media are, in fact, real.
Building relationships should be the goal on social media. When it isn’t, people often blame social media for their own failure.

I mention how I met Allen C. Buchanan, Principal, Lee and Associates. Complete commercial real estate location advice for owners and occupants of manufacturing, flex, and distribution buildings in Southern California.

You “hit the nail on the head” with this post Bridget! The true value of social media is in the valuable relationship and connections you develop – both on a personal and professional basis. Kudos for sharing the post!
Thank you, Bill. That means so much to me. I really appreciate you taking the time to read and comment, too.
It happened just like she said, folks! Thanks for the VERY kind shout out Bridget…I am grateful!
You’re very welcome. It’s a perfect case study.
