Tom Peters is indefatigable.
Peters, the business consultant who wrote his first book, “In Search of Excellence,” with Robert Waterman in 1982 is now out with his 14th book, “The Little Big Things: 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence”.
Peters was in Washington, D.C. tonight to discuss the book and his views on social media with a group of business people gathered at the perfectly named Baked & Wired bakery for “Sweets and Tweets”, a social media tweet up hosted by Debbie Weil, a Washington-based corporate social media consultant.
I captured snippets of Peters’s remarks which I will edit over the next few days, but for now, I wanted to share with you a short conversation I had with him and Weil as the evening was coming to a close. Their approach to use social media to make real and lasting connections with others really resonates with me.
If you’re in D.C. with any regularity, you should look up Weil and attend her next “Sweets and Tweets” program — you will learn a lot and meet some very interesting people like Tom Peters, whose book I’m looking forward to reading very soon.
Oh, and as an added bonus, you’ll get some amazing cupcakes.
