Studying the impact of innovation on business and society

This is Your Time to Make a Difference: Engage or Die

We live in amazing times. Perhaps what makes it so special is that the present is rewriting the future for so many things held sacred over the years. So many industries, processes, politics, beliefs and myths clouded or seized our responsibility and capacity to force innovation and ultimately the change that is needed and long overdue. At the root of this however, is what fuels evolution and revolution…


You helped define social media.

You helped democratize the ability to create and share information.

You equalized influence.

You are defining the future of how we connect and communicate with one another.

This is why once invincible organizations and industries are seeking your help to earn relevance today and in the future.

I wrote Engage to help you seize this moment – to help you find the answers not only for yourself but for those around you.

My good friend Andrew Landini of Landini Media helped me create a trailer for Engage to visually capture the importance of the role you play in shaping the new horizon for media, business, and society.  Besides, why should Hollywood have all the fun with trailers?

This is your time to make a difference…

    Hi Brian–thanks for the daily motivational message! While your book hits on the sense of urgency, it's important for businesses to think of engagement within a strategic framework and not go running out of the gate aimlessly. I run into the same problems with clients– they feel that they need to participate but haven't assessed if it makes sense for their business model.

    My only critique of your flashy trailor is that it needed a dramatic cut-away to men in suits sitting in a boardroom, hitting their fists on the table, and someone demanding to know “what is this Twitter, anyway?” And maybe a few explosions… 😉

    Your video ENGAGED me! I'm in! 😉

  3. I've already read the book, and I will read it again: not because I didn't understand, but because it opened me doors, helped me find answers to deep questions, and draw me the lines of what is engagement in our century.
    For anything.

  4. Okay, Brian, I read your book and agree that it’s powerful. But don’t you think that trailer is a little over the top? How about some music that is a little less apocalyptic like, I don’t know, The Cranberries?

    Well done Brian. the best trailer to a book so far! A suggestion why don't you adapt it to a small film / video about the book, some of its key ideas about engagement, with some of your info graphics, quotes and statistics underlying. It is something I keep on looking for presentations and as motivational content for companies and it worth and the idea and the narrative is underlying. Also I think it will become a hit. I will be waiting! all best from Sweden Brian.
