The Bellevue-based Executive Development Institute (EDI) organized a 2010 Leadership Together Educational Forum on the "Invasion of Social Media - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!" at The Seattle Times Auditorium on June 22.

Charlie Harger, KOMO Newsradio's technology and social media reporter and president of Bohado Media spoke to an audience of about 75 attendees. His presentation covered how to take advantage of social media to advance your professional brand, do business and expand your network. He also covered how to repair and change your current image in the virtual world.

EDI is a non-profit agency offering ethnically-tailored leadership programs focused on leveraging cultural and diverse attributes of participants to develop their full potential as global leaders.

National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP)-Seattle and Qwest Pacific Asian American Network cooperated with EDI to market the program. Prudential Insurance Company of America was the event's sponsor.
