Social Business Session #3

Purpose

To provide a regular forum where we can share ideas, experiences and models for helping organisations become more social. And, in doing so, create new connections that lead to community.

**Really important**

This is not a social media marketing event. We will not be talking about Facebook, Twitter etc. This is about organisational culture, structure, and internal technologies and approaches.

Participants

We welcome people from a diverse range of backgrounds: academics, consultants, researchers, do-ers.

Principles

  1. Open, because we each have a piece of the answer
  2. Diversity FTW
  3. You create the value
  4. No spam

Goals

Learning, connecting, making change happen.

Plan

- Coffee and chatting

- A few punchy lil' presentations to stimulate discussion

- Group discussions

- Ends at 12 pm

Probable presenters

- Mark Sears, Them Big Oak Trees on 'why social business should be at the heart of your brand's purpose'

- Rob Warwick, on 'complexity and social movements'

- Dan McQuillan, Goldsmiths, on activism and the social organisation

Organisers

The group was conceived and is organised by Will McInnes from NixonMcInnes.

We are looking for interesting presentations, free central London venues and other support: get involved :)

    excellent talks and great conversation. Liked the science themes that emerged. Could do with a bigger audience!

    Interesting and thought provoking. Will lead it very well. Will is right, more diversity will push the attendees

    Sorry, can't make it after all next week. Must give priority to a business meeting. But have you approached Google as a venue?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
