This masterclass, led by experienced consultant and editor Dion Lindsay, will enable delegates to understand how new technologies and new business models both enable and require novel ways of supporting work within organisations; delegates will come away understanding both why and how social media can be used within organisations, as well as how to establish good governance and promote long (and short) term profitability and sustainability. This masterclass is geared towards individuals looking to better understand why they need social media and intranets and how they can implement collaborative systems in the most efficient way possible, and will be open to heads of communications, KM, IT, HR, Marketing, and all leaders looking to effectively harness the potential that technology offers for collaboration.
