Your group will learn how the U.S. Military, the U.S. Dept of State and other conservative organizations with a history of strict management oversight have all found smart ways to adapt to shift their mindsets from a “need to know” to a “need to share” modus operandi. 

Your group will learn:

  • Why the surge of troops to Iraq and Anna Nicole Smith’s death were the perfect storm for social media adoption.
  • A measured, approach to opening up even the most conservative, political organizations.
  • How one of the world’s most hated companies uses openness to increase productivity and manage popular perception.
  • The value of openness to the organization, and how to measure it.


Social media has profoundly accelerated the pace of global information exchange. To compete in this fast-paced environment, smart organizations are equipping their everyone on their ranks with the tools, decision-making authority and training they need to use social media to support their objectives. 


Eric Schwartzman has help the U.S. Dept of State, U.S. Embassy to Rome, U.S. Embassy to Athens, United States Marine Corps, U.S. Pacific Command, NORAD Northcomm, Edison International and many others to harness the power of embracing a culture of openness.

"While it is easy to discern through Eric's presentations that he is indeed an expert in this field, what is resoundingly refershing is that he is also an exceptional public speaker. He is entertaining yet effective in "leading us to water," however, as the true professional he is, the ultimate conclusions are left to us to determine."
