Michael Hyatt Speaking at the 2013 CEO Summit

Properly leveraging the power of social media is a hot topic among today’s CEOs and business owners. At this year’s Convene CEO Summit, keynote speaker Michael Hyatt, former Chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, will be providing some powerful insights on how to build a successful social media platform. On his blog, Michael gives this illustration to emphasize the importance of moving forward with your platform:

A young man once asked a wise old woman, "When is the best time to plant an oak tree?" She answered: “Twenty years ago.” He then asked, “When is the second best time?” She answered, "Today.”

So it is with a platform.

It would have been great if you had started five or ten years ago. But if you haven’t, 2013 is the best time ever to launch yours or take it to the next level.

Michael is the author of eight books, the most recent is Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, which is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller. His blog, MichaelHyatt.com, is ranked by Google in the top one-half percent of all blogs, receiving more than 300,000 unique visitors a month.
