Working Social Summit Recap

Aware had the opportunity to partner with Microsoft as this year’s Working Social Tour made its way through Minneapolis last week.

We invited our network to spend a day at The Guthrie Theater with like-minded professionals who were interested in discovering new ways to strengthen employee engagement and organizational collaboration.

Yammer’s Co-Founder, Adam Pisoni, and Altimeter Group Founder, Charlene Li, shared their visions for the future of a socially engaged workplace and their throughts on how Yammer is fulfilling this vision. A customer panel discussion with Randy Schwarz, Consultant for Mayo Clinic’s Center for Social Media, and Erin Grotts, Communications and External Relations Director at ConAgra Foods, showcased first-hand accounts of their success integrating Yammer and addressed questions from the audience. Yammer team members hosted several breakout sessions focusing on improving business processes with social tools and how to drive network success on Yammer. During the cocktail hour Aware invited attendees to demo recent Yammer integrations in Sitecore and discuss the impact Yammer has had within our organization.

Just in case you missed this great event, we captured a few of our favorite moments below:
