Relationship building through social media: How it works and why it is so important.

Social Media has taken over the function of coffee houses, beer cellars and bars. People meet while sitting at home in front of their computers, or in the Underground with their cell phones, immersed in a shiny – and unreal – world. Nothing wrong about it as long as we keep in mind the differences between these worlds and understand the pitfalls.

There is no doubt that the internet has opened a completely new possibility for connection between all of us, wherever we are in the world, which simply wasn’t possible before. We can now build real and deep relationships without having ever met in person. And to do that we need the same skills of relationship building as we do in “real life”. Otherwise we get lost in a flood of temporary “connections” which give us the illusion of togetherness but that actually can evaporate in a nanosecond.

Social media allows to create real connection in various levels and grades. Martin will talk about how to build meaningful relationships via social media. He is a true expert in doing this himself and we will hear why this is so important in our times, for our personal life and for our work life.
