The Art of Curation Class at pariSoma: Teaching a Passion

Can you teach how to be authentic and engage online? I absolutely believe it especially when we talk about curation. We are all natural curators. We have all a passion, a message, a topic we love to focus on or to talk about with others.
This Monday, at pariSoma in San Francisco, it was “the art of curation” for me. I was introducing my series by presenting what a curator is to me, and exploring why curation is important for an individual or a brand in the digital age of information overload.
