Profile: David Christopher

I'm passionate about social media in business. Why?

Because of the possibilities.

I have been working in the social media space now for the last four of my thirteen years at Oracle where I head up the EMEA Social Networking & Business Collaboration (SNBC) programme.

I am also the founder of StopThinkSocial.com

I have been on a great journey of social discovery which has made me realise that actually social media is about people and trust, where the cultural change in user adoption cannot be under-estimated or ignored.

My posts are all about the successes and mistakes made to create an open enterprise collaboration environment so you can learn from my experiences.

Enjoy!
