"The past 17 years working in the social digital space has given me certain insights. The one that is clear to me of the need for the local agenda to rise up. The fragmentation of conversation online has risked the core of local. Local remains critical for us all. For our well-being as working parents, for the employment of our children, for the desire for local suppliers, and to build a trusted, business set of friends that we can talk to, meet and build our skills and supply chain of referrals and clients."
