Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Only for corporate communicators and only from Ragan Communications — the “SharePoint 2010 for Corporate Communicators Summit.”
Ragan Communications has teamed up with Discovery Communications to present the only SharePoint 2010 conference tailored specifically for corporate communication professionals. This is not a technical SharePoint conference, but an event tailored to the end user who works in internal communications, marketing, or administration.
“There are plenty of SharePoint conferences that teach you how to use this tool. Our conference teaches you how to use this tool strategically,” said Ragan Communications Chief Executive Officer Mark Ragan.
“SharePoint 2010 for Corporate Communicators Summit” will be held October 9-10 at Discovery Communications headquarters in Silver Spring, MD. Speakers include employees from Microsoft, SAS, Black & Veatch, and Ford Motor Company.
Corporate communicators will learn simple facts and "how tos" to create a robust, silo-blasting collaboration tool for employees. Specifically, attendees will learn how to:
-Use SharePoint to automate corporate communications processes and workflows.
-Create a Web-based dashboard to track and measure corporate communication.
-Create an Information Architecture policy—determine who controls information and where.
-Utilize the out-of-the-box SharePoint tools to decentralize content ownership and create a community of empowered site owners from across the business.
-Use SharePoint's social and mobile abilities to better engage corporate audiences.
-Report the ROI of SharePoint to your executives so you gain support.
-Train your employees to be SharePoint evangelists.
-What to do when your priorities don't match IT's priorities.
