My Saturday Choice

People tell me I am a great connector of people; a reputation I am proud to have.  I choose to connect great people whenever possible and it gives me a huge buzz when I hear about the results they create together.  For the next few Saturdays I am going to choose someone amazing I know and recommend that you find out more about them and then make a choice to connect with them on Twitter.  It’s a choice you will be glad you made!

This Saturday, I wanted to tell you about Matt Hodkinson.  I first met Matt at a networking meeting and he made an impression straight away; he works in Social Media and yet I found I understood what he was talking about!  He didn’t blind me with technical jargon and even more impressive – he backed up what he said with real examples and results.

I quickly discovered that Matt is different in his approach; he is a listener not a broadcaster and he applies this to his social media world.  He is a joy to work with and I have learned so much from him.  He makes me feel confident on-line and it is thanks to him this blog was started.

Matt, you are my Saturday Choice – thank you for bringing clarity and calm to the noisy world of social media for me.

Have a stunning Saturday

Choose to recommend

Today, choose to recommend someone that matters to you. Give some time in your day to talking about them and what makes them outstanding at what they do.  It is easy, when times are hard, to focus on our own needs and wants; by choosing to focus on someone else and taking the time to recommend them, we can have a positive focus to our day.

I choose not to carry business cards; I am easy to find on-line and would rather take someone else’s card and follow up with my details.  Instead, I carry a card file with the cards of the people I value.  The people I choose to recommend.  Nothing gives me more of a buzz than the opportunity to talk about them and create opportunities for them.

Yesterday, I added a new card to my file – the card of a man who is passionate about our environment and makes stunning eco furniture.  His name is Tristan Titeux and he is changing the world’s attitude to recycling, one table at a time!  Today, I choose to recommend him – and I recommend you connect with him on Twitter.

Who will you choose to recommend today?

Have a great one,

Dinah 🙂
