Find Leadership Summit Speakers on Twitter, Facebook, and Blogs #tls09

Written by Paul Steinbrueck

Willow Creek Leadership SummitToday OurChurch.Com’s senior staff will spend their second day attending the 2009 Willow Creek Leadership Summit. Since we’ve been talking a lot lately about the growing influence of blogs and social media sites as tools for sharing and discussing ideas, I thought it’d be interesting to see see how many of the Summit speakers are blogging and using Facebook and Twitter.

Plus I’m sure a lot of Summit participants would like to connect and communicate with the Summit speakers online after the Summit.

Last night I did some research and put together a table of all the speakers and links to their blogs, Twitter, Twitter and Facebook profiles.

Note this is only personal profiles and blogs and does not include those for their organizations.  It’s also likely I missed some and this table is incomplete.

2009 Leadership Summit Speakers Online Profiles

Speaker Twitter Facebook Blog
Bill Hybels no no no
Gary Hamel no no yes
Tim Keller no no yes, but no posts since Nov
Jessica Jackley no yes no
Harvey Carey no profile, page no
Dave Gibbons yes yes yes
Andrew Rugasira no yes no
Wess Stafford yes yes no
David Gergen no no sort of
Chip Heath no no no
Dan Heath no no
Bono no no no
Tony Blair no no no

As you can see, only 1 of the 13 speakers is using Twitter, 5 of 13 are on Facebook, and 4 of 13 are actively blogging.

If I’ve missed any, please post a comment and let me know, and so I can update the table. Thanks!
