The Verizon Authors Series was designed to bring experts to small businesses. All this month we gave away featured author, Don Tapscott’s book “Macrowikinomics – Rebooting Business and the World.”
We will give away more of Don’s book the rest of this week and next.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 25th, at 2 p.m. ET Don will host a live (free) webinar presented by the Verizon Small Business Center and then be available for an hour on Twitter on Thursday, May 26th at 6 p.m. ET to answer questions and offer advice.
I urge all businesses to seize these two opportunities to get insights from Don Tapscott directly. Consider these as free consultations with a business expert; so, why not participate? During this webinar Don will offer tips for businesses to compete with well-entrenched competitors. He will address how small businesses can benefit and learn from the principles of Wikinomics – collaboration, openness, sharing interdependence and integrity.

Of course, feel free to post your questions in the comments section below and we’ll make sure Don answer it during the webinar or on Twitter.
