An interesting article from the UK

SIG Chair – Danny Davis

PLUS, we have secured a fantastic sponsorship deal from world leading social business platform Jive Software that will enable us to participate in these online discussions, and allow us to cooperatively develop the Innovations we want to experience at the 2014 conference.

Together, we will uncover hidden issues and opportunity in our market, collaborate to develop the best and most valuable PCO Conference for 2014 – and in the process gain first hand experience in building the kind of community engagement that will play a central role within the future of events.  This is a great opportunity to engage more closely with the PCO leadership community.

What role will you and your company be playing as these, and other innovations play out?

You are invited to participate and help drive the direction of this group together with your colleagues, SIG community facilitator  “The Innovation Coach – Danny Davis” and a series of thought provoking special guests who will participate through the year.
