Dachis Group London Launches Social Business Fundamentals

by Mike Thompson 04 May 2012 Enterprise 2.0, Events, The Connected Company

Dachis Group London is launching a new series of monthly events called “Social Business Fundamentals”. The aim of the events is to arm practitioners with the latest insights into the challenges that organisations face on their journey to becoming Social Businesses.

Each event will tackle a core topic, challenge or idea related to this developing field of practice. We’ll share insights, both good and bad, directly from our clients as well as stimulating conversations that help you take forward your own initiatives. There’ll be drinks and networking before and after. We’re aiming for a wholesome mix of theory and practice along with plenty of quality conversation.

Social Business Fundamentals #1: The Social Intranet

Although the term was coined in 2009, we’ve been helping our clients create and introduce them since 2005. The social intranet started as a name for an internal website that anyone could edit, grew to include people profiles and networks and has expanded to mean a digital workspace that facilitates knowledge sharing by allowing people to “work out loud”.

During this session we will cover what a social intranet actually is, the potential benefits for your organisation, and thoughts on where this technology can go in the future. We will also be joined by Andrew Woolfson, Director of Knowledge Management at RPC (the client-centred modern city legal services business) , who will share some of his firm’s experiences of implementing and introducing a social intranet. He’ll talk about the challenges they have faced – particularly the work that went in to winning over partners and other key stakeholders – and the benefits that the firm is starting to see as a result of their award-winning implementation.

The event will take place on 24th May 2012 at 6pm, with drinks beforehand starting at 5.15pm. To reserve your space follow the button to the Eventbrite event page.
