This is a great video for a marketing, communications or social media class. The points made by the speaker are clear and consice, and hard to argue. Personally, I like video because it gives my students someone else's perspective than my own. The examples are great - and great teaching moments.
Viewers will need a good internet access to view the streaming video.
