I am Ana Neves. I’m an experienced knowledge management consultant and owner of Knowman. Year after year, I have been carefully crafting and perfecting Social Now to keep it as valuable, relevant and surprising as when it was launched in 2012.
Social Now 2019’s main topic is Developing Digital Leadership. You can read why I chose this topic and register to attend Social Now 2019 to hear and debate why digital leadership is key, what does it mean to be a digital leader and how enterprise social tools can help.
Previously as a knowledge manager and more recently as a consultant I realised there are two types of events:
However, after hearing from attendees and clients of mine, I came to understand that:
All combined, it is hard for a participant to get a true sense of what enterprise social tools are about, how they support work, what are the pitfalls and clever tricks, or what sets tools apart from each other.
Tools are demonstrated live as narratives of work at Cablinc, a fictitious company very similar to your own. You will collect many ideas you can borrow and adapt.
Some organisations recount a typical day at work so that you hear about actual practices of improved communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing.
There is plenty of time to debate and network with all the clever people attending. Be careful: sun, wine and great food may be in close proximity.
You have to see it to believe it! That is why you will get to see exactly what enterprise social tools look like and how people use them at work.
The panel will consider the business, the IT and the user angles to ask questions and highlight key aspects to consider when choosing a tool or analysing more digital ways of working.
Speakers are not allowed to get into sales pitch mode. Participants can flag any vendors who start losing the plot. Tool vendors are here to inspire with better work processes, not to sell.
The pre-event masterclasses will provide practical tips and further insight into those topics which have been worrying you for a while.
