On 27 May, 20 people came together online for the Social Now Reunion. It was also an opportunity for Knowman to announce the dates for the 9th edition of Social Now – 19 & 20 May 2022. Once again in Lisbon, Portugal.
Ana Neves, founder and managing director of Knowman, described the Reunion as the coffee break of Social Now without the actual conference or the coffee.
As in any coffee break, there was no agenda or presentations: it was up to the participants to start, guide, join and leave the different conversations on the use of enterprise social platforms for communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing. And participants certainly did, grabbing the opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet peers from around the world, talk about work and the challenges of the last year.
Hubbub was a great platform to enable and promote serendipitous conversations, giving participants total freedom to move around different rooms, speaking in different clusters without losing the sense of the buzz happening around them.
“There is a tremendous pressure for organisations to adapt in order to sustain (or even increase) performance in a context which is now totally different from what they were used to”, said Ana in her closing words. “It’s up to all of us to show the way that can be achieved, with better leadership, proper digital skills, a more mature use of the available platforms, and a genuine desire to embrace change. I hope you can all take value, inspiration and strength from today and I’d love hear how it all influences your thinking and doing.”
She then went on to announce the dates for Social Now 2022 – 19 & 20 May, in Lisbon, Portugal.
It will be great to come together for the 9th edition of this conference, with its unique format, great speakers and amazing conversations.
“Just make sure you add these dates to your calendar and this conference to your training and travelling budgets”, she said.
To help with both, Knowman has opened pre-registrations for Social Now 2022. Pre-registration gives a 15% discount to be used for the actual registration.
