Video Interview: Ben Edwards, Social Media Practice Leader at IBM

Ben Edwards is an evangelist that I respect. He’s at IBM (a PodTech client) and been involved from the early days in helping to progress communications forward.

We talked about what it was like to help a culture open up using communication tools to reach customers. When I was building out my Social Media programs at my recent corporate employer, I often use IBM as a model for a large company that is progressive with communication.

Last week, I had the opportunity and privilege to speak with Ben on a panel on Business Bloggging. I was able to get a few minutes away and interview him regarding IBM’s social media strategies. They’ve deployed blogs, wikis, forums, events, and even have a few islands in SecondLife.

I’m starting to take my video camera with me to different tech events to interview folks, although IBM is a client of PodTech, this video was not paid for by IBM.
