Social Media for Internal Communities

Social Media for Internal Communities

A couple of weeks ago, I opened a talk for the Isle of Man Social Media Club entitled Enabling Social Media for Internal Communities. The speaker was Mr Chris Gledhill from PDMS who gave a talk about an off-the-self collaboration package called Microsoft Sharepoint and presented a case study around his organisation’s use of the product.

Here are the slides from the presentation:

I hope you find them interesting.
