Due to a few scheduling conflicts, we have now switched the Collaboration Matters webinar series on Social Collaboration from Mondays at 4pm UK (11am ET) to the same time on Tuesdays.

If you haven’t heard about the series (which we are delivering in association with our partners at Applicable) or just haven’t got around to registering yet, here are the details:

Collaboration Matters logo
Starting on Tuesday
7th December 2010, Collaboration Matters will be hosting weekly
sessions working through a succession of topics aimed at helping you
and your organisation through the buzzwords and hype to reveal the
facts behind Social Collaboration technology.  We’ll be focusing
in on the newly released Lotus Connections 3.0
as a prime example of the tools that can enable your users to share,
collaborate and innovate more effectively, whilst also discussing
some competitive and complimentary solutions
from IBM and
other vendors.

Whilst the series of webinars will slot together to start at a high
level, then to drill down in more detail as the weeks go on, we
understand that everyone lives busy lives and thus the webinars will be
available for download should you miss one or two.  However, the
aim is to provide interactive sessions with opportunities for Q&A,
so you should definitely aim to attend as many of the webinars as you
can.  All the sessions will be delivered by our very own Social
Collaboration specialist Stuart McIntyre, with guest appearances by
some well-known experts in the field.

These
sessions will be hosted by Collaboration Matters and our partners at Applicable,
providers of enterprise class Lotus Connections hosting and managed
services, and will be delivered via LotusLive Events.

So, please join us for our first session – registration is required:
