#SWCONF is nearly here...

I'm sooooooo excited....

Why?

The Social Workplace Conference (#SWCONF) in London is just over a week away!

This is a great looking conference with some fantastic speakers which I have admired for many years. I am truly honored to be the opening keynote at this conference, which has made me work even harder to ensure i bring great content. And I promise NO death by powerpoint!

But what do I choose to talk about? :

  • The Oracle journey of Social discovery?
  • Why being social in the enterprise is no longer just a nice to have but a critical component of how we need do business?
  • How to gain senior management buy-in to create The Social Enterprise?
  • Is Social Media really ther right term we should be using?
  • How to develop Social Readiness and mature your Social Business Infrastructure?
  • How traditional and social communications can and need to co-exist?
  • The death of email is coming...

All the above I will cover but there is one topic that I am so passionate about which I have been working on for the last 3 years that I have to talk about - OPEN COLLABORATION.

OPEN COLLABORATION for me is at the heart of The Social Enterprise and it is what's going to change behaviours in the workplace.

If you don't know about this conference then check out the details over at #SWCONF and if that doesn't whet your appetite then check out my interview with Vic Okezie - Social Media behind the Firewall

If you haven't got your tickets yet for the conference and are thinking of going, then hurry there is currently a 20% discount if you quote the code TWITTER20.

Hope to see you there...
