Social Business Seminars
Event Dates and Venues:
30th May, Dublin (Marker Hotel)
A fundamental shift is taking place in how organisations work both internally with their employees and externally with partners and customers. Social tools readily available to the general public are becoming a prerequisite within the organisation. Today’s workforce expects to be able to collaborate with their colleagues as easily as they do with friends in their social life. However, there must be some control and a policy regarding what tools are used and how they are used, otherwise time and effort will be wasted in trying to manage them and you will lose the phenomenal productivity improvements they are capable of.
This event will explore how Social Business tools are changing the way employees, suppliers and customers communicate and interact with each other. The event will show how these tools work and feature a range of customer success stories, demonstrating how Social Business has brought tangible value to multiple organisations. You will also have the opportunity to engage with our industry experts during both the panel session and in the networking breaks, as well as seeing demos from our subject matter experts.

Public sector organisations are under huge pressures to do more with less and reduce cost all within tight timescales. Throughout 2013, IBM and GovInsight will be promoting a number of FREE regional seminars, morning briefings and online webinars which help convey the value of 'Social Business Tools' within Public Sector.
The ability to find information and subject matter experts, understand corporate policy, share documents and manage projects, not just by sending emails around, but by use of genuine social tools, which are now an essential part of the modern workplace in Public Sector. Social platforms created for the workplace specifically help to break down silos, encourage information sharing across the organisation and ensures that information remains safe and that employees remain compliant with management guidance.
Furthermore, Social Business Tools also allow the citizen and other external users / agencies to communicate directly with the organisation, without fear that comments or information will be in the public domain, allowing public sector organisations to inform their customers and solve problems quickly and efficiently, improving customer satisfaction.
