The what, why and how of social collaboration and sharing for the enterprise 

Social networking has transformed the political landscape of nations through their ability to engage people in immediate, inclusive and holistic ways. Awed by the potential and in some cases shaken by the perceived threat of productivity impacts, businesses and governments responded with widely divergent policies ranging from banning social media in the workplace to engraining it into their daily activities. Despite this, only 5% of companies have any form of social networking strategy and most of these are for brand management. Most, however have high expectations of social collaboration and sharing. While proven practices and implementation frameworks are still evolving, there is a growing body of knowledge building on the hit and miss experiences of early adopters.

As one of those early adopters, Henry Jaffe has been applying enterprise social collaboration and sharing technologies and methods with his clients in the public and private sector since 2006. Henry will share his experiences and provide insights into how organizations can navigate the labyrinth of vendors, technologies and approaches for integrating social collaboration and sharing to improve business performance in the energy sector.

Henry is Managing Director of ClimbIT Inc and Co-Founder of CodeExcellence. He brings 30+ years of global experience in the deployment of enabling technology solutions into Global 1000 organizations in over 40 countries. Henry has served as VP Global Professional Services for Alcatel, AVP of Asia-Pacific for Newbridge Networks and Director Product Management for Mitel Semiconductor. He has played a founding role in PMC Sierra, Switchview and Digital Fairway, successful start-ups in the services management and semiconductor sector.
