Vaughan Rivett from IBM New Zealand is presenting on the IBM Social Software Success Story. The session is in Auckland New Zealand, and there's about 80 people here for a 7.30am breakfast and presentation. Vaughan's struck an engaging tone for the session, lots of people are nodding in agreement and laughing at Vaughan's jokes ... it's a good atmosphere.

I hired the Social Biz Guy to come in and talk to my marketing team about how we could leverage social media to the next level for our business. Social media today is massive and plays a big part in any business and for CEO who now think its a time waster, they simply have their heads in the sand. Vaughan, talked to my team about areas of social media we had never thought about as well as teaching us how to go about implementing these types of forums. I would certainly recommend Vaughan. We thought we new alot about social media, clearly we didn't!!

I first met Vaughn when looking for a development partner for a project we were undertaking. I found him to be a highly knowlegable subject matter expert and he made an excellent introduction for us. Based on my dealings with Vaughn to date, I would not hesitate to recommend him as a trusted advisor and partner.

Vaughan's passion for Social Business and marketing is obvious from the moment you meet him. He has indepth knowledge of his field and talks in practical steps how to incorporate Social into your business - whether small or large.  I particularly appreciated Vaughan's holistic view which included driving culture change vs just clicks and tweets to ensure Social brings its value to business.
