Longtime readers will recall that, when it comes to choosing
conference session topics to cover, I'm always a sucker for a good social
angle. Well, we invited NewsGator to participate in SharePoint Leadership Forum 2013 to cover the social space, trusting implicitly that whoever they
sent as a speaker would crush it with regard to our theme of sustainable
adoption within the context of social.
Why did we feel this way? Because quite simply, NewsGator is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end when it comes
to enterprise social software for SharePoint.
SPLF attendees are fortunate indeed in that Shawn Beeson, a
Solutions Engineer at NewsGator, will be taking to the stage next week in both Washington,
D.C. and Atlanta, Georgia to explore Enterprise
Social: A Human-centric Approach. With
expertise in enterprise social design and implementation, and all facets of
SharePoint (gained, in part, during his time at Microsoft), with a strong
emphasis on architecting and delivering highly customized, human-centric
solutions built on the SharePoint platform.
Here, in his own words, is Shawn's session abstract:
There are several important points to consider when
designing and implementing effective collaboration strategies. In this session,
we will cover the value of enterprise social in creating a highly efficient,
collaborative environment that will drive adoption and sustainability for your
organization. Join Shawn Beeson, Solutions Engineer of NewsGator, as he
discusses how to minimize the barriers to entry for your users, and provides
insight into techniques and tools to enable your users to collaborate and become
more productive in a more natural and human-centric way.
