We want to share this value with you and for free! 

 While one thousand of you have had the opportunity to listen and interact personally with our speakers, we hope that many others will have the chance to see what they missed and to join this common journey. Starting from today we are posting all of the videos for the sessions of the Social Business Forum 2012, together with some notes about why you cannot miss them. Both the videos and the presentations (where available and shared by the speakers) will be also linked from the agenda. Here we go with the first bunch:

  • A dialogue on Social Business Manifesto where Emanuele Scotti and Rosario Sica (co-founders of OpenKnowledge) picked up some of the theses of the Social Business Manifesto to critically examine both the huge potential and the tricky resistances companies meet everyday when trying to adopt social media as a business accelerator. Each of these theses is a major opportunity to make your organization more adapt to compete in a new, consumer-controlled, community-empowered market.
  • In From Stress to Success – Pragmatic pathways for Social Business, John Hagel (Co-Chairman Center for the Edge at Deloitte Touche) by many considered one of the most relevant business thinkers of our times, leveraged the research conducted for the Shift Index to help us frame Social Business into the broader economical forces impacting our companies:
  • In Enterprise gamification to drive engagement, Constellation Research’s CEO Ray Wang gave one of the most vibrant and appreciated speeches of the entire conference providing pragmatical suggestions on how to embed gamification into everything a company does for building motivation, engagement, participation:
  • With Embracing social. Why Europe’s ahead of the curve, Tibco President for Social Computing Ram Menon shared the vision of one of the global leaders in Enterprise Application Integration now helping client companies to adopt collaboration as the social glue to connect people, processes and applications:

We were lucky enough to have one of the most visible pioneers in social media for support. Mixing customer experience, passion,  marketing, in @YourService. The business world has flipped and small business can capitalize, Frank Eliason (SVP of Social Media at Citibank) talked about the formula to build a more customer oriented organization
  • Applying people participation, by involving employees, customers and partners, requires way more than some social layer on top of traditional organizations. With its Engage or lose! Socialize, mobilize, conversify: engage your employees to improve business performance, Oracle’s Senior Director and WebCenter evangelist Christian Finn provided very concrete steps and first-hand examples on how to socialize content repositories, processes and the intranet without forgetting a careful focus on business value
  • Interested to learn how to distinguish yourself from all of your customers and thrive even in this though economic climate? The amazing talk Stephen Denning gave, titled Transforming the workplace with radical management, provides the answer by covering the major management shift organizations are facing to become agile and delight their customers together with the perils towards becoming more open and social. Believe me. Don’t miss this one!
  • May the future organizations be built in a totally new way by giving priority seats to the very persons composing it, first of all customers and employees ? Esteban Koslky, principal Thinkjar gives some direction on how this social, collaborative and connect enterprise could work:
