Yesterday, lots of folks here at Dell were thrilled to welcome Charlene Li to Dell headquarters yesterday to spend some time with her as she took part in the #CMOsocial event that Dell hosted with Forbes CMO Network.
While she was here, Charlene shared a few words with some of Dell’s employees who were certified as part of our Social Media and Communities University (we call it SMaC-U for short). Was pumped to see Charlene’s tweet that meeting some of the now nearly 7,000 certified employees was a highlight of her day here:
It’s fitting, because I know a lot of the concepts that she wrote about in Open Leadership were a big influence to the development of the education framework that our education team launched a little over two years ago.
I can also say that Charlene was one who really inspired a small team of Dell folks to forge ahead when we were getting our social media efforts off the ground several years ago. That’s one of the reasons I jumped at the chance to take a few minutes to interview her while she was here:
Happy recent 8th blogging birthday to you Charlene, and thanks for the lessons and continued inspiration along the way!
