What should you expect at Social Connections 8?
Wed, Mar 4th 2015 5:40a   Stuart McIntyre
Every Social Connections event has been different – after all, we’ve hosted every one in a new country so far!  So the culture, the language and the surroundings definitely influence the kind of atmosphere and interactions that take place.  That’s the joy of being a truly international user group! However, there are certainly common themes… A gathering of like-minded and passionate advocates of Social Business technologies, collaborative approaches and the use of IBM

Why should you attend Social Connections 8?

In the few days since we announced our fantastic agenda for Social Connections 8 in Boston, the number of registered attendees has almost doubled! For this event, we have asked each attendee why they have registered.  Here are some of the recent answers that have been given: Newbies I’m a new user and would like to know more about Connections. This will be my first one. Very excited to attend after seeing the great value presented at the previous 7. I’ve never attended previou

We are so super excited! Today we are unveiling the Social Connections 8 Agenda for our event in Boston. As you know from our previous announcements, we have keynote presentations by Suzanne Livingston and Ed Brill. We couldn’t be more excited by these well-known IBM big-hitters (and hugely respected supporters of the community) headlining our conference content. That said, we have been absolutely blown away by the response to our call for abstracts, and can now formally declare that we

Social Connections 8 is approaching fast! In fact it feels as though the pace is picking up with every day that passes! With this being the first Social Connections event that has been run in the USA, the team is working hard to pull together the very best experience that it can. What does that mean?  Well we’ve been busy on: The abstract submission process. We’ve been delighted to have received a great number of abstracts submitted for this event than any we’ve run before.

It is just 10 days until the Social Connections 8 call for abstracts slides ever so tightly shut. Yes, you have just ten short days in which to submit your great ideas for sessions at the upcoming IBM Social Business user group, which takes place in Boston on 16th and 17th April.  We’re looking to select 20-30 really tip-top sessions to fill out our provisional event schedule – we’ve had some really super abstracts submitted so far but we’d really love more!

Hi guys, Hope everyone who went to ConnectED got back safe, and everyone else, i hope you are safe anyways! Now that ConnectED is over, it’s time to focus on Boston and Social Connections 8. The team is still super psyched to get this show over to the US for the first time, and we wanna see you there!

Are you in the final prepping stages for your trip to Florida? I can somehow relate to that if that is the case. There is a heavy snowfall over Stockholm and I must admit that Orlando sounds a lot more inviting, however, I would like to see the forecast pick up there as well! From this… to this… (yes!) Anyways, what I was getting at is that we are going to Orlando, at least a few of the Social Connections team. Maria, Jan, Doug and (Lars) from the #soccnx team will be on hand in O

IBM Connections feedback – What did you like/want/hate?
Wed, Jan 14th 2015 8:10a   Jan Valdman
During our last Social Connections event in Stockholm we introduced a new activity: all attendees were asked express their opinion regarding various features of IBM Connections. The goal was simple – to aggregate independent feedback on the product by a defined group of people (we considered Social Connections VII attendees to be a well-defined group of experts and keen users). The setup was also simple: there was a wall with well-known icons and a large number of post-it notes! The id

It’s been a while since we closed Social Connections VII in Stockholm, but it’s finally time to do a wrap-up and an official send off, over the Atlantic ocean and to Boston, MA. First of all, our team.  Stuart, Brian, Martin, Jan, Wannes, Maria.

And here we are already, in the beginning of November, only one week away from Social Connections VII! Exciting times…exciting indeed!

Although you can see who our sponsors are via their own sponsors page on our site, we wanted to highlight each of our valued sponsors and tell you a bit about each. Why? Because Social Connections simply wouldn’t go on without sponsors. We are grateful for them as they make the whole thing possible, from the venue to the sessions to the gala reception and more!

The event’s gala reception takes place on the evening of Thursday 13th November, between 7:30pm and 10:30pm. The team know that we have a lot of live up to when it comes to our gala receptions – a castle in Wales, the historic Guinness factory in Dublin, overlooking the lake in Zürich, and then that majestic view (and fireworks) in Prague! However, after much searching, we think we have found one of the very best venues in Stockholm for this event’s evening gathering… We
