Ron Mader's Workshops and Presentations

slideshare: upgrade your world (16,000+ views), storytelling now (30,000+ views), we suck at collaboration (88,000+ views)

So you'd like to integrate the social web with the natural world? Let me know if I can help.

My name is Ron Mader and I thrive on collaboration. Happy to do as much as I can without charge. If there's something more complicated-innovative (tk), then there's a small charge. First thing you should know is that any formal workshop or presentation inviting you to be an editor on this wiki. We can weave the web and figure out the proper strategies. It's no so expensive, rather simple, frugal and fun. Viva lo bueno, barato y bonito!

Yes, the workshop can be imparted on both sides of the screen or in person with face-to-face interaction.

Learn using a hands-on approach to communication and collaboration. Required is curiosity and the wanting to learn. The goal is continued development and maturation of personal storytelling and story listening abilities over time. Our tools are the ever-expanding universe of the social web: Facebook, Flickr, Google, LinkedIn, Slideshare, Twitter, wikis and YouTube. We'll share insider's tips and create an effective strategy in using these tools.

Tip: Engage your senses and upgrade your world.

To begin the collaborative process, a few questions:

What are the intended outcomes?
How many people will be participating?
What would participants like to learn?
In terms of face-to-face instruction, what works best in terms of where and when to hold the training?
What social web tools are you already using?

Experiential learning

South Africa Proposal
Martin, let's find a way to challenge our mutual readers - on our websites, Twitter and Facebook. Are they interested in social web workshops which we could co-create? Honestly, if we could collaborate, I'd love to offer communication coaching strategies for tourism pros in South Africa and tourism pros who are interested in South Africa. From my perspective across the Atlantic, too much is taken for granted by locals and too little is known by potential visitors. Consider this fertile ground for a road trip of the imagination.
What if we considered some creative ways of promoting engagement. You already have the experience of holding a photo safari. If we could weave together those types of social bridging exercises, I think we would have the proverbial win-win-win.
