Authenticity in social media: go to greater heights by going deeper

Authenticity is a common buzzword that is on the lips of every executive coach. Leaders, politicians, and individuals are all advised to ‘act’ more authentically.

But what exactly is ‘true’ authenticity? How do we know if we’re being authentic? It goes much deeper than the top tips you get when you Google “how to be authentic”: tell the truth; show a picture of your family; or speak as if you’re speaking to one person…

In this insightful session, Mette Johansson will drill down to the deep core of what it means to be authentic in social media as well as in real life: creating a niche that’s truly you.

Stu Lloyd

Chief Hothead, Hotheads Innovation Training

On my first school report from Waterfalls Kindergarten in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Mrs Greenwood wrote in neat blue pen: “Stuart loves Stories!”

I’ve made a living from storytelling for over 30 years … as a creative director in the advertising business (before selling my agency to DraftFCB), as an author (100,000+ books sold), as a journalist and travel writer and blogger, as a specialist military history tour guide in Southeast Asia, and as a storytelling coach and trainer for Fortune 500s and progressive individuals.

As Topdog at CATMATDOG, I use my background in psychology, and passion for the science of persuasion, to design and deliver strategic storytelling, digital content creation and communication skills workshops for companies such as Intel, Adobe, Pfizer, Citibank, Hootsuite, and Accor.

When not rocking a roomful of people somewhere around Asia/Pacific, I love getting lost in the mountains of Indochina on my motorbike. Or being at home with my 2 labradors and 3 cats. And burying my nose in real books made of paper.

How prescient Mrs Greenwood was, because The Telegraph, UK, once called me “The Perfect Storyteller” … which just goes to prove you can’t believe everything you read in the media.
