The Evolution of Work in Disruptive Times
It's truly fascinating given the ways in which COVID-19 has already accelerated and "upstaged" the present age of disruption. Almost overnight, a huge segment of our economy needed to abruptly shift to virtual work. It's truly fascinating given the ways in which COVID-19 has already accelerated and "upstaged" the present age of disruption. Almost overnight, a huge segment of our economy needed to abruptly shift to virtual work. he situation has progressed into waves of lay-offs, furloughs, amended business operations, losses of revenue, and an overall "battening of the hatches" to ride out the storm. Yet, at a certain point, no matter how much we say there are certain segments or our organizations and work we will simply "stop doing", the reality is as we adapt to what will likely be a long road to the newest version of "normalcy" work will need to be completed and we will need to become more resourceful, innovative, and creative in how we will get out work done through flexible, agile, and cost-effective means.

Using Facebook and Twitter Effectively: How to Monetize and Measure Its Effectiveness
The feeds of Facebook’s 234 million U.S. subscribers are constantly being viewed for updates and news. At the same time, Twitter’s 68 million U.S. followers practice the art of communicating in 280 characters. Most Catholic publishers have a presence in both of these media, but what are the benefits of all this activity? How do you measure what a “like” or a retweet means to your business? How do these media impact your sales? Or do they? In this session, we will examine how to use both media effectively, how to best measure the results, and how and where monetization makes sense.
