The Business Case for Collaboration
Speaker and dinner
To celebrate our 50th event, LIKE joins forces with the Online Conference for this special evening looking at proving the value of effective collaboration. The evening will be led by Online Keynote Speaker, Jacob Morgan, author of The Collaborative Organization.
Many in the LIKE community are involved in supporting collaboration within our organisations. We may 'know' that collaboration will improve the way we work and ultimately the bottom line, but how do you prove it when asking for investment in new systems and initiatives?
In this interactive session, we'll be learning from Jacob and from each other, as we explore the benefits of improving collaboration and the techniques we can use to prove its value.
The evening was kindly sponsored by TFPL.About Jacob
