Stewart Mader and Thomas Vander Wal Invited to Speak at Enterprise 2.0 Conference

The BrainYard - Where collaborative minds congregate.
Back in July we opened our Call for Papers for the inaugural Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. We received an astounding 450 submissions from people willing to share their thoughts, strategies and experiences around Enterprise 2.0.The Call for Papers went to a public vote which 929 people completed. Yes, that's an impressive response but what's more impressive is that 929 people managed to get through the very painful 16-page survey! So thank you to everyone who submitted sessions and weighed in during this process. We have a much better system planned for Boston 2010 that will be able to accommodate this volume of participation. Stay tuned.Over the next few days we'll announce the winning sessions here on the blog, in no particular order. So on behalf of the 929 people above, our advisory board and TechWeb Team I'd like to first invite Stewart Mader (@slmader) and Thomas Vander Wal (@vanderwal) to present at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Francisco. Their session:

The One Year Club: Five Things Companies Learn After a Year of Enterprise 2.0 AdoptionAt the outset, organizations are often eager and excited about the benefits they anticipate from cultivating adoption and use of social and collaborative tools. But talk to those same organizations six months or one year after they''ve started, and you''ll hear a different story. Some organizations have experienced measurable success, others are struggling with a range of adoption and use issues, but all will tell you to watch out for several factors they didn''t anticipate. We''ll discuss these factors, and show you how to plan for each as you start, restart, or continue your adoption efforts.Stewart Mader, Founder, Future ChangesThomas Vander Wal, Principal & Senior Consultant, InfoCloud Solutions
Congratulations Stewart and Thomas!
