As Jive's director of events it's hard to believe that our third JiveWorld is almost upon us. Where did the summer go? Well, on my end, it went toward the million little details that ensure you have a great experience at JiveWorld. Let's just say, the Cosmopolitan is going to be smokin', and you won't be disappointed.

 

I just got a sneak peek at the final line-up and can honestly say that JiveWorld11 is shaping up to be the most inspirational, content rich, Social Business event of the year. Highlights include:

  • Keynote presentation by Maria Pinchevsky, SVP of Support, T-Mobile - "How Social Became Mission-Critical for T-Mobile"
  • Deep dive into gamification with expert Gabe Zichermann
  • Social Business thought-leadership on the The Decade Ahead panel with industry leaders
  • More networking than ever before through events like Old School Social Networking night, JiveWorld11 Run and Yoga Club, and a Dinner Networking Night at the Cosmo. 

 

Oh, and get this: we're going to have more than 50 sessions lead by Jive customers and product experts. Here's a snapshot but you can find the full agenda here.

Track:  The New Way to Marketing

Session: Avon’s Marketing Makeover: Tailoring the Global Message

Speaker:  Jeanne Morton, Avon Products, Inc.

 

Track:  So You Think You’re a Social Business Guru?

Session: Advanced Measurement: Measuring and Acting on Employee Community Data

Speaker:  Ted Hopton, UBM and Brice Jewell, Cerner

 

Track:  The New Way to Work

Session: The Next Phase of Social Business

Track:  Best Practices in Social Business

Session: Always Learning at Pearson - Getting Internal Communities off to the Right Start

Don't forget:  Summer pricing ends on August 31st - take advantage of the savings by registering this week.

See you in Vegas!

  Jive's Community Involvement group used our very own internal instance of Clearspace to poll (pictured at right) all Jivers on which community activity there were interested in sponsoring for Q4. The winner was Portland Impact's Adopt a Virtual Family program. We received a family profile and shopped for them. Then, rather than giving these items directly to a family, items are brought to a holiday store where low income families can do free holiday shopping. Thanks to all the Jive employees for their generosity and thanks to Jive for helping with the larger gift items! Check out our stack of gifts below:

Last night we hosted our first Call of Duty 4 Tournament here at Jive headquarters.  Turn out was great and the Jivers really showed their gaming expertise.

 

We started with nine Jive teams at 6:00 PM and by 7:30 PM we were down to our winners:  Chase Caster, Software Support Engineer and David Smith, RTC Engineer. Congratulations to you both. You are truly scholars and frag masters.

 

Then, professional gamers, Kristin Reilly and Oscar "Technoboy" Rivera, stepped up to play our Jive champions.  To our own surprise, Chase and David showed us what they were made of and beat the professionals 2-1 in a best of three!
