16 Feb Social Intranet Summit Vancouver
2010 marked the inaugural run of the Social Intranet Summit Vancouver. Intranet thought leaders and practitioners gathered in the visually stunning Vancouver Convention Center to illustrate trends, share ideas and discuss what’s working in the rapidly evolving world of social intranets and digital workplaces.
Dion Hinchcliffe kicked off the event with “10 strategies for getting the most out of your social intranet.” I followed with an overview of IBF’s Digital Workplace Maturity Model. The rest of the day was a rapid fire procession of 20 to 30 minute presentations by the who’s who, and most importantly, “who’s doing” in the social intranet space. The compressed timeframe kept us moving. The high quality content and dynamic presentations kept us in engaged. So what were the takeaways? In pure social style, let’s hear from the participants.
