With JiveWorld less than a month away, I'm excited to preview the many awesome track sessions and networking opportunities we are offering related to External Communities and Jive-x deployments.  I'll be there and looking forward to meeting and catching up with many of you.  Please don't hesitate to reach out ahead of time if you have any questions, want assistance figuring out which sessions to attend, or want to coordinate some time to meet up.  (And as always, for attendees, you'll have access to the content and recordings after for anything you miss live.)


External Community Engagement Track (both days Tues & Weds, 15-16 March)

Hear from a wide range of Jive external customers regarding their Jive-x deployments, best practices, and industry trends. For individual session details, schedule and speaker info see: External Community Engagement | JiveWorld Track
