DevLearn 2012

Good morning!  If you had to suffer through Sandy’s “Frankenstorm” wrath, I hope you arrived safely and relatively uneventfully.  If, regrettably, you had to turn back and miss out on this year’s conference (reputedly the largest DevLearn conference to date!), then I hope you arrive safely at your home destination.

If you’re one of my many readers, new friends and colleagues who can’t make it to the conference this year, then you may be pleased to know that you can actually follow some of the highlights via the Twitter #DevLearn hashtag.  For my part, I’ll also be posting summaries of keynotes and sessions I attend.  I plan on also posting audio and/or video where possible.  (Should be able to at least get audio.)  So, check back here regularly during the week for highlights and updates.  You can also sign up for my newsletter and I’ll notify you when new updates are posted.

Drop By Session 210 – Seven Stages For Launching An Enterprise Social Network

And, if you’re actually in attendance here at DevLearn, then you’ll want to drop by my session today, October 31, 2012 at 1:15 p.m. – It’s Session #210- The Seven Stages For Launching An Enterprise Social Network.  That’s where I’ll be walking attendees through a case study of the social enterprise network we implemented over at Kareo.  It’s working wonderfully… but, even I have to admit, it was touch and go in the beginning.  So, I’ll definitely be lifting the veil on what some of those barriers were to adoption and how we were able to navigate them.  The idea is for you to ping me with questions and also learn about the hurdles we made so you can be on the lookout for them when you tap social media for implementation as a closed network social network for your organization or for one of your clients.   (Hint:  Suffice to say, “build it and they will come” is definitely not an implementation methodology.)  😉

Professionals Connect!

Finally, if you attend one of my sessions or if we at least have the wonderful opportunity to connect here and shake hands, I’d love to extend the opportunity to stay in touch long after this week.  So, let’s connect!  You can find out more on the About page above or you can also hit me up on LinkedIn.
