Anyone who has attended our conferences knows that we create highly interactive and participatory events. One of the features we always run is ‘participant roundtables’ in which all attendees select topics of particular interest and share perspectives with their peers, who at our events are usually senior, highly experienced people.
At Enterprise 2.0 Executive Forum on 24 February we are planning a new feature in addition to the participant roundtables, that I think will be one of the most valuable aspects of the event for attendees.
In what we are billing ‘mini-workshops’, we have gathered the absolute cream of the experts and consultants in the Enterprise 2.0 space in Australia, who will each run a series of 20 minute small-group workshops. The workshop leaders will share their expertise in interactive sessions that will give deep practical insights and take-aways to the participants. Participants will be able to select four workshops to attend in the session after lunch. This intense participatory format will be a fantastic complement to the rest of the content on the day. See here for our complete list of speakers.
The people running the workshops are truly the best people in the field in Australia (and beyond!). They have immense experience and deep insights to share; we are very fortunate to have them involved. The workshop leaders (who you can see are very much online participants!) are:
