Last week, I was honoured to be invited to speak at the Sydney meeting of the Knowledge Management Roundtable(#KMRT). This group of big business and government bodies meet regularly to swap best-practice and develop new knowledge management solutions in this high-tech fast-forward world we live in.

The presentation I gave was titled The Social Web for Business, with a particular focus on Twitter. I’ve now created a Slideshare-friendly version and updated some of the slides for brevity, so that the rest of you can have a butchers’.

If you’re already all over Twitter, you may find some of this rather basic. If, on the other hand, you want some good arguments to take to the boss or just don’t ‘get’ what it’s all about, this could be a good starting point.

In two weeks time, I’ll be speaking on The Social Web for Small Business at The Sydney Small Business Expo, presented by The Brew. We are major sponsors of the events that aim to provide inspiration coupled with practical advice aimed at small business owners. The plan is for those that attend to have some concrete steps they can realistically take on leaving the expo, not a lot of big business case studies that don’t apply when you have an SME budget.

Dates are:

  • Tuesday 15th September - Cronulla Sutherland Leagues Club, Captain Cook Drive, Cronulla 2230
  • Wednesday 16th September - Liverpool Catholic Club, Hoxton Park Road, Liverpool West, 2170
  • Thursday 17th September - Dougherty Community Centre, 7 Victor Street, Chatswood, 2067

If you’re looking for advice more specifically aimed at small business, instead of major global brands as in the above presentation, come along!
