This is what business used to look like: a customer would come to you, they’d buy from you and you’d hope one day they’d return. You’d sell, sell, sell, giving not much extra beside the occasional fridge magnet or calendar. The future of business won’t be like that. The future of business is all about creating shared experiences according to Brian Solis, one of the most prominent thought leaders in new media.

Peter Guber Reviews Brian Solis’ Latest Book, What’s the Future of Business

Originally published on Amazon as an “Expert Review” by Peter Guber

While everyone’s talking about social media, professional motivation, or the need for change in business, people who are actually looking for answers to bring about change are left to draw upon the classic treatises of Peter Drucker, Dale Carnegie, Geoffrey Moore, Tom Peters, et al.

There’s an old saw, “technology changes, people don’t.” The tsunami of social, mobile, real-time, technology is disrupting everything; this means that for success one must make the change of how one influences. What changes is how people influence, are influenced, along with how, when and where they make decisions.
