Age of Conversation 3 Brings Together ~300 Authors To Benefit Make-A-Wish - #AOC3For those of you intrigued about what the tools of social media enable - conversation - then look no further than Age of Conversation 3, the third crowd-sourced book in the series that I am honored to be a part of.
Perhaps you've been following our saga. The first Age of Conversation book was published in 2007, the work of 103 authors from around the world. Here is a link to my chapter, titled The Age of Conversation: The Conversation Age Enabled.
237 authors participated in the second Age of Conversation - They Just Don't Get It!
And, now, Age of Conversation 3: It's Time To Get Busy! with ~300 authors.
Our co-editors, Gavin Heaton and Drew McLellan, have done it again: brought together contributing authors from around the world to provide perspective on this age of conversation, where technology tools enable relationship building and idea exchange.
As with the previous Age of Conversation books, all proceeds from the sale of AOC3 will go to charity. This year, it is the Make a Wish Foundation. Pretty exciting!
Age of Conversation 3 is divided into the following topics:
- At the coalface
- Conversational branding
- Getting to work
- Corporate conversations
- In the boardroom
- Pitching social media
- Innovation and execution
- Identities, friends and trusted strangers
My chapter appears in Innovation and Execution.

Marvelously, two of the authors from Age of Conversation 2 — Gretel Going & Kate Fleming -- offered to help publish version 3 via their newly started publishing company called Channel V Books.
As Drew' explains: "They work with business thought leaders who need to publish books in order to promote themselves and their businesses, solidify their credibility and attract new opportunities—but don’t have the time (or desire) to learn and manage the intricacies of the publishing business in the process. Channel V Books bridges the gap between self-publishing and traditional publishing by offering the best of both worlds: the highest production quality, distribution channels, visibility, creative flexibility, ease and, most importantly, profitability. To learn more about Channel V Books, visit their website, or contact email@example.com.
Thank you, Gretel and Kate, Drew and Gavin, and all of my fellow co-authors!
