Dave Kerpen - InstagramYou Can’t Fake Authenticity

While technology and the way we communicate evolves at a rapid pace, there are some things that stay the same. Mainly, the importance of people skills. This is true for both people and businesses alike. Even the most well thought-out and perfectly executed social plan can fall flat if it loses sight of the essential humanity of its audience.

Dave has authored several best-selling books on the art of social. This body of work has now culminated in a book that addresses the very foundation of social, both online and off: people.

Dave is here to bring us back to basics and get your social off the screen and into the heart of your customers.
