Andrea T Edwards, CSP, The Digital Conversationalist, is a change agent, provocateur, passionate communicator and social leader. Andrea challenges organisations to think differently about integrity in the digital age. To think differently about the positive potential of social media. And she challenges business leaders to understand that, the tool of business transformation today, is the powerful voices of employees as social leaders. Because it is employees who are the champions and true influencers for businesses in the digital age. When organisations fully embrace this philosophy, social media becomes a catalyst for change. It engages and empowers individuals to serve the communities of their organisation, helps break down unnecessary siloes and hierarchies, while also empowering employees to gain control over careers and destinies. Social leadership unlocks everyone’s potential, because when you own your voice, you own your future. If you want to create rapid and powerful change in your business, change that will fundamentally shift the way you think and act, change that will attract the best talent, empower your employees and draw customers to you, then speak to Andrea about how a social leadership culture can lead your business to achieve incredible results.

The human impact of COVID-19, Burmese Workers Camp, Phuket Town

I spent a day visiting and sharing food at Burmese workers camps in Phuket Town, Thailand at the end of May 2020. It was a very humbling experience and it unveiled the deep economic impact COVID19 has had on communities like this. The virus did not impact this community, the economic fall-out has. It’s been devastating.
