The Unique Format of Social Now

and why it may actually lead to positive results for your organisation

Social Now is a conference with a very unique format.

This conference uses a case study – Cablinc – to anchor most presentations, focusing the conversation on tangible, workable solutions.

Cablinc: Social Now’s use case

Cablinc is a fictitious company facing very real and common challenges. It is the use case which underpins most talks at Social Now.

Tools in action at Cablinc (no canned demos)

Real-world, day-in-the-life narratives of smooth collaboration, communication and knowledge sharing

Lessons learned from peers who have boosted adoption of their digital platforms

Rich conversations with participants from around the world

An Intranet Expo to learn from an be inspired by other organisations’ intranets.

They may not be perfect, the most beautiful nor the most advanced – but they are real!
Discussing them may just give you the insights required to create or improve your organisation’s intranet.

What previous participants say about the event

“Social Now was a great opportunity to learn new stuff and get some cool insights about how to create more digitally integrated workplaces that help companies face the new challenges created by the new models of work.”

“with the vendors not in sales mode, I think it allows attendees to lower their guards a bit and they are more likely to share what’s working and not working for them.”

John Schultz, Senior User Experience Designer at Mayo Clinic 🇺🇸

“It’s a really nice event where we get together to talk about important things and move our own projects forward in the process of networking and meeting other likeminds.”

Chantal Dunn, Amadeus 🇫🇷

“a very inspiring experience at which we met great professionals, learnt from other projects and shared ideas and points of view”

Anna Garcia Sagué, Director of Communication at Sorigué 🇪🇸

“Social Now took the discussion about Enterprise Social Network from being descriptive and hypothetical to being alive and real.”
