HLO's frontliner focus

Unless you are telling people a story they are interested in, you are just talking crap consistently, delegates at the helloworld frontliners conference in Auckland were told over the weekend.
Cassie Roma was one of the keynote speakers at the conference and she addressed, among other things, the connected culture of today, the desire of many younger people to be ‘you tubers’ and the ‘rebirth of the guru’.
But most of all she stressed the importance of being kind. ‘In a world where you can be anything, be kind.’
The two day conference took place at SKYCITY Convention Centre and included award presentations, functions, supplier-agent meetings, company updates and plenty of networking.
