Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to discuss online feedback with host Craig Price. We all want feedback but are we prepared for what awaits us online? The avalanche of inane comments and spam sometimes makes us wonder if its all worth it! Or worse…nothing at all. We want our tweets retweeted, our facebook posts liked and our blogs commented on.

Wally and Craig will both be presenting at this year’s IPMA-HR Eastern Region conference June 25th-27th.
