From the comfort of your own office, on Thursday, September 16, 2010 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM US ET
By Rani Salehi
Program Director, WW Leader Web, Social Media and Digital Strategy
How do customers experience your brand?
We invite you to think about your business network in an entirely new light. Your website? How is this differentiated from others in your same marketplace. Your employees — are they informed, engaged and responsive? Your channel partners — are they collaborating effectively? Are they well connected to the pulse of your business?
Web 1.0. Web 2.0. What's next?
It’s time to enable new ways of working with the right capabilities and skills. Create the right forums to connect your customers and employees in more valuable ways. Use real time information to shape the conversation. And infuse intelligence into interactions among people. It's time to create exceptional experiences that in turn produce value.
Don't miss this thought provoking program.
On Thursday, September 16, live from the IAC Building in New York City, Alistair Rennie, General Manager IBM Collaboration and Portals, will discuss this social transformation under way and how it will change — and reinvent — how organizations relate to their customers, partners, employees and citizens through more compelling experiences. Through dialogue with several thought leaders, he will explore the importance of collaborative technology in productivity, loyalty and customer experiences.
This event will be streamed live to the web on Thursday, September 16, 2010 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM US ET. You can begin registering on September 10th at www.
