If like me you are getting to grips with the latest trends in social media with the likes of twitter, facebook, linkedin, friendfeed etc, then you are probably familiar with the regularity of the updates and in the case of the micro blogging of twitter then you like me are probably wondering how on earth some people manage to send so many tweets every day as well as holding down a full time job. There is a whole industry grown up off the back of this new phenomenon, with applications galore to provide access whilst on the go (from your mobile) and to automate much of this. My thought here, is that with the increased use of automation – does this take away the personal touch and some of the very purpose of social media – being personal contact? I am comfortable with a degree of automation, but how much is too much – for example if everyone is just "sending" who is reading and responding?

I am a highly experienced, energetic, persistent and innovative senior sales professional/sales leader and coach with more than 30 years, of successful sales and leadership experience. I have been successfully developing and managing sales teams and winning new business with and through partner channels in this time. My default approach is one of clarity, support, openness and flexibility. I am by nature inquisitive and enquiring and wholeheartedly embrace technology that enhances our experiences. Fun is an incredibly important element of work/life for me, so whilst I am deadly serious about the business of business, I do like to work in an environment that is fun to be in. I am very much a people person and fundamentally believe that it is the people in an organisation that make it a success or otherwise. I thrive in teams - creating, developing and galvanising individuals into coordinated teams is my forte, and I love a fast-paced dynamic environment too, where great people challenge and ultimately deliver high-quality results for demanding customers. I am a passionate advocate for the customer, and hold a firm belief that in the customer economy, World-Class performance is "table stakes" if you wish to retain (and grow) the customer base. If we do get it wrong, we say so quickly and act to rectify it swiftly. I consider myself to be a catalyst – connecting and coordinating people and opportunities. I am a motivator and inspire people to be the best that they can be through coaching and mentoring. One of my favourite "quotes" is Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, with a beer in one hand, shouting "Whoo, what a ride!!" Views here are 100% my own. https://grahambunting.com/findme/ View all posts by Graham Bunting
