Step up and lead business success through enterprise social

As a key driver of communications inside their organisations, the communications function is often charged with the task of introducing enterprise social to improve communications, engagement and collaboration among employees.

While the function is an obvious lead for enterprise social initiatives, communicators run the risk of short-changing themselves and the organisations they serve by harnessing these technologies solely through a narrow lens of communications. Instead, the new digital economy is challenging today’s communicators to step up and take on a wider mandate to facilitate hard business outcomes for their organisations through enterprise social.

Rita Zonius will share her experience to demonstrate what progressive communicators are doing to reinvent their roles and ensure their organisations make the most of enterprise social investments to drive bottom line business value.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Build personal confidence in making the most of enterprise social tools.
  • Influence leaders to be their authentic selves through enterprise social.
  • Identify use cases beyond communications, addressing business pain points and new ways to work.
  • Measure value and demonstrate return on investment through enterprise social.
