The highlight of the week for 4 Roads was exhibiting at simply-communicate SMiLE London. The Smile face-face event is the perfect place to hear stories, best practice and case studies of Social networks within the Enterprise.
There were some wonderful presentations which gave honest insights from large organisations, like the RFU, Coca-Cola and IBM. If you didn't get a chance to attend SMiLE, then I would encourage you to consider their next event which will be held on 25th September 2015. What made a pleasant surprise is rather than tedious and long-winded presentations and death by PowerPoint that we all dread, they use an interactive Q&A format which lends itself to a much more engaged audience. More details on the SMiLE event can be found here.
SMiLE presented 4 Roads with the ideal opportunity to publicly launch our most recent customer case study on We Are Social, the world’s leading agency specialising in social media. My previous blog goes into more detail on how we implemented Telligent Community to drive employee communication and you can also download the case study here.
Now, some of you may have noticed that at the end of my last blog I mentioned that we would have some exciting news to share. Well I’m pleased that I’m now in a position to elaborate.
In association with our partners Shilbrook Associates, 4 Roads has been asked to build an online community which is being called ‘simply-succeed’. This is a dedicated online environment designed to give you the best possible chance of creating and sustaining a successful social platform in your business. We’re delighted that the decision has been made to build this platform on Telligent Community and it's being officially launched in April.
The guys did a great of explaining that events like SMiLE are fantastic places to network but then for most of us, it’s back to the office and business as usual. What simply-succeed offers is that online space to further the agenda and replicate those expert tables so that they’re online 365 days a year.
If you go to the simply-succeed homepage, you will find more details on the interactive program which covers 3 main phases:
1. Prove: making the business case and developing your strategy
2. Plan: how to prepare the business, avoid common pitfalls and launch your platform
3. Drive: build adoption, embed behaviours and deliver measurable value.
What I think is particularly unique about simply-succeed is that this a dedicated forum where you will be able to interact with other like-minded professionals who are facing the same challenges that you are. What is also helpful is that as you build your own core team you can create your own company private group where you can collaborate with experts and build your strategy and plan your launch.
I will keep you up-to-date on the launch of simply-succeed, but in the meantime, if you want more details drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
