TagItOn… Luis Suarez masterclass – ‘From Adoption to Adaptation, From Enablement into Engagement’

Social Connections VI bannerAs many of you will be aware by now, Social Connections VI takes place on 16th/17th June in the beautiful city of Prague in the Czech Republic. The team have just announced the agenda and speakers for the event, and have been highlighting a number of our sponsors over the past couple of weeks.  It is shaping up to be an ‘exceptional social experience’! 🙂

We know that many attendees, speakers and sponsors will be travelling from a distance to attend the event (we already have registrations from Russia, USA, the Gambia, Indonesia and Australia), and thus we want to deliver the most bang for their bucks (or perhaps Krug for their Koruna?)!

Luis SuarezTherefore, once again, Social Connections has an option for an additional day’s content at this event.  We call this ‘Tag It On‘ and this time we are thrilled to offer a true masterclass by one of the worldwide experts in Collaboration and Social Business, Luis Suarez!

Luis will be delivering a full-day workshop on Wednesday, 18th June at the same venue as Social Connections VI, the Hotel Ambassador in Prague.

“From Adoption to Adaptation, from Enablement into Engagement”

What if instead of “driving” adoption within your organisation, you could inspire and facilitate adaptation instead? What if you would have the means to re-define a new way of working with your fellow colleagues and peers through that very same adaptation to become a successful Socially Integrated Enterprise? What if that methodology, good practices, extensive expertise and know-how would all be at your fingertips, so you could apply it right away? What if you knew the nuts and bolts of getting your management and senior leadership teams all involved right from the start to help facilitate the final social business transformation you have always been looking for? Are you ready?

Come and join us on this one day masterclass to find out and learn how you can get the most out of your IBM Connections deployment to begin, or continue, that transformation journey into becoming a successful Social Business.

With a maximum capacity of 25, this session is going to be really focused, packed with value and offer tremendous opportunities to learn from both Luis and the other attendees’ experience.

Whether you are just getting started with your Social Business Adaptation Journey, or whether you are already a very well seasoned 2.0 knowledge worker, this workshop will provide you an opportunity to learn with other fellow practitioners through plenty of practical, hands-on advice, good practices, lots of hints and tips and, most importantly, all of the necessary knowledge resources available to date. It will help you as well to even break free from the email yoke: Outside of the Inbox

The early bird rate is just €349 (or €279 for non-profit and academic users) – this rate ends on 30th April so if you want to attend, now’s the time to register!

(If you’d prefer to pay by bank transfer or need a VAT invoice, please contact us directly.)

This is a real opportunity that is not to be missed.  Since Luis left IBM just a few short months ago, this is the first time he has been able to share the breadth of his experience and knowledge to a wider audience. Book this Tag It On workshop alongside your free attendance at Social Connections VI and get the very best value from your travel.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Social Connections
Although IBM Connections has been in the marketplace since 2007 it is still a relatively new product by IBM/Lotus standards. The larger LUGs (Lotus User Groups – such as UKLUG and ILUG) tend to focus on traditional Lotus technologies – Notes, Domino, a little Sametime and TDI with lots of the newer XPages thrown in the mix. The WUGs (WebSphere User Groups) tend to concentrate on core WebSphere technologies such as the Application Server, Portal and Process Server. In addition, these events can be very technical in nature. Therefore we feel there is a definite space for a Connections user group with a strong focus on social collaboration technology, aimed at both existing and prospective customers and partners, and at individuals with both business and technical perspectives. We meet twice annually, in late Spring/early Summer and again in late Autumn/Fall, and from 2015 onwards we will be splitting the events between the USA and Europe. In addition, through the use of these great social tools, we aim to keep a dynamic and lively online community going all-year round! The events will be social in nature, with a strong desire for real face-to-face networking and knowledge sharing as well as delivery of useful content.
