Alli Soule
Social Media Employee Engagement & Education Specialist

My main goal in life (at SAS) is to make sure employees feel relaxed and self-assured when using social media in their jobs. What’s that look like? A lot of LinkedIn profile audits. An internal blog series called #TipOfTheWeek on topics like time hacks using Buffer. Explaining personal versus professional social media use (and all the gray in between).

So, what are the things you'll see me post about? Employees, most likely, along with references to my favorite things like Scotland, my beloved Demon Deacons, and a certain dog genius named Oscar.
