April’s book of the month: Tweet Your Way to Success by Samantha Kelly

We’ve polished off our Easter eggs and now it’s time to get some work done, that includes spring cleaning; so why not spring clean your social media?

This month’s read I cannot recommend highly enough; this book really helped me get into the swing of things on Twitter and has enabled me to make a positive contribution especially in places like HR Hour and Future Leaders. Samantha is incredibly talented and has a natural flair for making Twitter an engaging space full of development opportunity. In this book she shares her tips to help you get what you want out of Twitter and truly make an impact, no matter how big or small your aspirations may be.

With a positive profile being a desirable HR quality, now is the perfect time to get started and whilst the book may focus upon people starting their own businesses, this may certainly help those starting their own business but it can also benefit those who want to start a blog, take that next career step, or simply have a social media presence; this book has something for everyone.

It’s important to remember that investing in your personal profile is investing in yourself, so I hope you enjoy this month’s read and hope it helps you to develop yourselves further.
