First #responsivecoffee in Saudi Arabia
We believe in network effects and many-to-many collaboration. Communities are what Yammer is built upon, the very nature of the product is an enabler of communities of practice. Whilst as a product we promote communities, there are also the offline elements that we believe are fundamental to driving true transformation. All over the world these community meetings are springing up.
In partnership with some key thought leaders in the region we held the first #responsivecoffee in Riyadh and then another in Jeddah the week after. There were influencers from Go-Telcom, Maaden, Microsoft, Mobily, National Commercial Bank and Waad Holdings. The conversations are focussed around change, organisational culture and how organisations can adapt to become more responsive.
You can see how I initiated this meet-up on LinkedIn and Matt Partovi provided some practical steps to get started in creating your own event.
