Who and what is William Pearl? William comes from the Germanic name “Wilhelm” the Germanic elements ‘wil’ (will, desire). ‘Helm’ (helmet, protection). William is the name of many rulers and kings; a royal name in the UK for more than a thousand years. Williams is also my surname. My value interpretation of this part of the name is a “will” or “drive” to succeed and the passion to win with my stakeholders. Now Pearl. Pearl, a highly valued gemstone. A metaphor for something very rare, very fine, harmonious and very valuable. It has also been a symbol for wisdom. When I was at university, my nickname was “Shirl thePearl”. My value interpretation of this part of the name is: a harmonious partner delivering value to my stakeholders. In summary, I am driven to succeed with you, working as a flexible partner to deliver value. My mantra: simplify complexity, maximize potential, making it fun.
What about Social Media Pearls? Social Media Pearls is my social media blog and it is the social media arm of my consulting services. I believe that your social media strategy should be an integrated to your overall strategy and goals of your business. So many businesses open a Facebook page or Linkedin page and “wait”. For what? There is often a “Now what?” reaction when that magic engagement does not happen. That is where I can add value. I help businesses integrate their social media strategy and then operationalize it to add value. My goal is to simplifying your social media approach. I work with organizations to first start with a strategy, then integrate with their plans in order to pick the appropriate tactic and network. Followed by on-going coaching and execution.
