I am writing on behalf of a friend that works in Corporate Comm. for a Global Pharma business.  His leadership is asking him to rapidly spin-up and become the internal point person (in the US operations) for all things relating to Social Media.  He is looking to hire an external consultant/facilitator to bring into the US leadership group (NE US) to begin to make sense of opportunities, challenges, pilots ...
 
If anyone has recommendations or testimonials, or even pointers, these are appreciated.
 
Thanks,
 
Howard

My suggestion is he get on Twitter and then see who is talking about soc media and who people are "retweeting" on the topic. Tons of people on Twitter claim "social media" expertise, but you can find the ones that really have it by seeing who is getting followed/replied to/ retweeted. Clay Shirky [@cshirky] is a good place to start.

Lot of Gartner-types on Twitter are claiming social media expertise, but I think the independents like Clay are smarter at this point in the process.

Socialtext is a wiki-based knowledge sharing/learning app that has the best soc media built in -- twitter-like app, IM, blogging, wiki, social network, social dashboard, etc. Would be worth doing a small pilot with Socialtext just for the learning experience on how all of that soc media works together.
