Topic: The Social Enterprise – or not. What’s really going on out there?

The media is filled with article after article about a new breed of so-called Social Enterprises. Organisations that have adopted social media platforms, internally and externally, as a new mode of operation in order to be agile, responsive and ultimately more competitive in a business environment that seems to be speeding up by the day.

For the March monthly meeting we will be hearing first-hand from a practitioner who has worked with many such organisations in different parts of the world, organisations who have hitched their future to this new way of working.

Simon Scullion is a social strategist with US-based Jive* consultancy Social Edge Consulting. Based in Spain, his work takes him daily to organisations across Europe and other locations, working with them to reshape their future using social platforms, creating both employee and customer communities. Simon will give us his insights into whether the media buzz is actually being reflected out there in the real world, and what typical obstacles he has had to face.

He will also give us an insight into the way Social Edge Consulting run a global organisation of 30+ people using an ecosystem consisting primarily of a social platform and a culture of ‘working out loud’.

In a first for the NSW KM Forum, Simon will be joining us via a video link from his home base in Spain. For NSW KM’ers, you will need to be in the meeting room to hear and interact with Simon.

Look forward to seeing you there!

* Jive is one of a number of social enterprise products. The presentation will not be platform specific.
