UK Connections User Group Keynote – what should I say?

I was honoured to be asked to present at the first UK Connections User Group. I know first hand that there is a fantastic and passionate community around IBM Connections and am very happy to be supporting this event. I would encourage any Connections customers, or people thinking about Connections to attend. The Salvation Army have been generous enough to allow us to use their fantastic location in central London, and many thanks to Stuart McIntyre, Sharon Bellamy and Simon Vaughan who have been the driving force behind putting this together.

However, what would a Connections user group want from a keynote? I’d like to do something different from a usual social software presentation. You already see the value of social tools, you know the product, so what would you like me to cover in my 45 minutes?

    Hi Jon,

    what’s on the agenda for this first UK Connections user group? Since it has been scheduled to take place on July the 4th (2 weeks from now); it would be great to have a look at the agenda before registering and making all the arrangements to get there (flight, hotel,…).

    Hi Wim – this is a community group and is not run by IBM. I know the organising team is working flat out to finalise the agenda and I know it is going to be full of quality content (and the opportunity to meet all the other Connections users itself makes it worthwhile to attend) but they do have a day job as well – it is a huge effort organising something like this especially the first one – I am sure they will fill in the agenda as soon as they have it confirmed! http://socialconnections.info/events/sc.nsf/agendas.xsp

  3. Wim, we are hoping to have the agenda finalised by next Wednesday. I can commit that we will have a great selection of IBMers (such as Jon), partners and customers speaking at the event, as well as real opportunities for networking and knowledge sharing.

    I’m sorry for the wait, but I promise it will be a valuable day. Actually lets turn this on its head… What presentations would you want to see in order to convince you to be there?
