Full Episode Details

The main aim of digital transformation is to anticipate customer needs and provide them with a great customer experience. Unfortunately, many companies are focussed on digital transformation, but they’ve forgotten why.

Jeremiah Owyang, Founding Partner of Kaleido Insights, insists that just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you should, and that rings true for digital transformation. He’s a great believer of self-care within the industry and explains the best way to advance our social media careers whilst understanding the pressures we face.

Social media is ever-changing, which means there’s an immense pressure to keep up and a high chance of failure. Fortunately, Jeremiah has mapped out the lifecycle of social, which could help you understand where to make changes within your business and connect with your audience effectively.
