Screen shot 2013-10-07 at 5.06.47 PM.pngI was a newbie to JiveWorld last year, and I didn’t realize what I was in for. I was not only amazed by the wealth of knowledge that I retained from so many loyal Jive customers and industry thought leaders, but it was an extremely fun conference! I left JiveWorld12 totally re-energized about the product and about my role, and I was ready to share my newfound knowledge with others.


I can’t wait for JiveWorld13 and I’ve already marked a few sessions in my schedule in the JiveWorld13 Mobile App. You can earn the "Ready Badge" and be entered to win an iPad Mini through these easy preparations!)


Wednesday, October 23:


10:30a-11:30a: Open Leadership: Coaching Leaders and Communicators on their Evolving Roles, Rachel Happe, Principle & Co-Founder, The Community Roundtable


Rachel will be presenting The Community Roundtable’s Social Executive Research, which will include:

  • Why executive adoption matters
  • Why social approaches matter strategically to executives
  • How social approaches help executives personally
  • The executive adoption journey
  • A case study

If this doesn’t convince you, Rachel elaborates more on the research she’s revealing at JiveWorld13.


2:15p-3:15p: JIVETalks: Beyond Points and Badges - How Gamification Can Drive Business Objectives in Your Community, Tracy Maurer, Megan Truett, Laure Cetin


Tracy Maurer, Collaboration Systems Manager at UBM, commented on her panel’s preparations for this session:

“If you are thinking about implementing gamification in your Jive site, have your own stories, or just want to see what the hubbub is all about, I really recommend checking [out our panel].”


Thursday, October 24:


1p-2p: Open Leadership: Gaining Executive Engagement: Benjamin Taub, Nikki Bussard


Benjamin Taub, Director of Enterprise Collaboration at Akira Technologies, commented on why you should attend this panel:

“If you attend our talk, not only will you get to see witty, charming, erudite and humble me (and Nikki!) give a life changing and life affirming talk about why and how you can get leaders engaged in your community, you will also be attending JiveWorld13. JiveWorld is the only conference of its kind that offers practical advice and ideas from time-tested practitioners – AND teaches you how you can transform your organization to be more efficient, effective, fun and cool – at the same time.  And couldn’t we all use a little more cool in our work lives?"


2:15p-3:15p: Advanced Engagement: Growing Your Community Beyond Registered Users and Page Views: Chris Ewald, Allison Alviggi (Doherty)


Chris and Allison will touch on how to realize value by driving member engagement along core business processes. They'll give us more than a sneak peak on the strategies they deployed to achieve their corporate goals. FYI: McKesson increased their community engagement by nearly 200% in seven months! While Chris has been a Community Manager seven years, it's only his seventh month managing a Jive-based community. Check out the four big opportunities Chris is excited about during his first JiveWorld.
