Colonel Chris Hadfield became a worldwide sensation as the first Canadian astronaut to command the International Space Station, harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions. Hadfield’s multiple daily tweets and photos from space made people see the world differently. His accessibility, whether answering questions via Twitter or collaborating with The Barenaked Ladies on a song sung by nearly a million people simultaneously, endeared him to all, while he orbited Earth.
Ryan Holmes is a thought leader and serial entrepreneur who has redefined the face of social media after he founded Invoke Media, the local tech company that developed HootSuite in 2009. Holmes has grown HootSuite from a lean Vancouver startup to a global leader in social media with seven million users, bringing Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks out of the dorm room and into the board room.
