About Garth Frizzell:

Garth Frizzell has extensive experience with social media. He’s used Google+ to build a brand, and pioneered Youtube’s interactive townhall meetings. He’s a popular Facebook storyteller, a LinkedIn CV junkie, a live-tweeter, and once built a blog to get elected.

Career: he is UNBC’s Research Partnership and Innovation Officer. Government: he is serving his second term as Prince George City Councillor. Private life: he is a husband and father.

Your social media advice to Garth might be to build silos for career, public and private life. Garth doesn’t. He’ll tell you the risks and rewards of his Wide Open approach.
