Suffice to say that of all the Lotuspheres I’ve attended […]
[ Ah, that took rather longer than I’d expected! Real life getting in the way again 😉 ] So, post 1 covered the stats and the take-aways from Lotusphere 2011. This post is discussing the main topic of this year’s event – Social Business. I know you’ll all have missed that, ‘cos it wasn’t mentioned […]
