For UK based change agents, enterprise 2.0 and Future of Work types, our second combined meetup is at Yammer HQ on Wednesday 4th June starting at 18:00 with free pizza/beer/wine.  Our friend Neville Hobson will be our main speaker this time.  Would love to see some of you there!
Purpose To provide a regular forum where we can share ideas, experiences and models for helping organisations become more social.  And, in doing so, create new connections that lead to community.  This will be the second meetup supported by Kongress Media and Agile Elephant that incorporates #e20s and London Wiki Wednesdays.  At the meeting we hope to get group consensus on a shorter, snappier name for the meetup.   **Really important** This is...

+David Terrar Sure thing! I will be looking forward to that opportunity, David. In its due time, for certain. For now, I shall just be watching and observing from afar while I will be on the road. Hoping the connectivity will hold to help me tune in accordingly to the streams :)

As you know, we have the Enterprise 2.0 Summit London happening on 9 September (with a pre-conference workshop day on the 8th).  Our one day agenda has good content, but not enough space for the serious networking  that a social business/enterprise 2.0 group would like.  From the discussions we've had with various practitioners and people here, we've decided to add an Agile Elephant Unconference day on 10 September.  The venue will either be the same (British Academy) or nearby (Hub Westminster).  It will be aimed at practitioners and change agents who want to share experience and talk "what next?".  We are in discussions with sponsors to fund the venue and food so we can make it free for attendees (with space for the people around Europe we'd love to have involved) - we just want to break even and make it happen.  We just announced this at our meetup last night, and I'll publish a little more detail next week.  

Very interested in ideas, suggestions, introductions to potential sponsors etc.  Thanks!

Quick update on the Enterprise 2.0 Summit London Nov 26 (workshop on 25) & Agile Elephant Unconference Nov 27 (18 days to go - eek!).

Metro Bank HQ London will be the venue for the Unconference - a cool partner to have, first new retail bank in UK for 100 years, disrupting retail banking by focus on customers, breaking down the silly banking rules.  

+Dion Hinchcliffe Added as afternoon keynote speaker to the 26 conference day - adds to an already stellar line up, so big thanks and we're delighted he's coming!

All those months ago we talked about adding an Unconference the day after the Enterprise 2.0 Summit London.  Originally it was going to be hosted by Google, but they dropped out when we moved the conference to November. We just agreed a new venue this week with a really cool UK brand as our host.  I'm hoping their marketing will sign off the announcement today, but it will definitely be happening in Central London, all day, November 27 - full details later today (I hope!).

Here are my keynote slides from the IOM Summit in Koln today.  I wanted to get across 3 things:

1. I want to make you step back and look at things that we already know that are connected to the digital workplace and digital disruption and look at them with fresh eyes, and think about them differently - the Digital Enterprise Wave 
2. I want to highlight a key issue around the organisation structure topic where many people here may disagree, but give you our Agile Elephant viewpoint - which is different - it's not about the org structure, many structures will work (including traditional hierarchy), it's about change of mind-set and culture.  
3. Lastly present recommendations and a practical approach that companies can apply to help change their business for the better!

Interested in any feedback. :)

Good point +Leon Benjamin - too many CXOs stuck saying the right kind of words but still not understanding the World and marketing has changed significantly

Here is a quick update on the Enterprise 2.0 Summit London that we are co-producing with our friends at Kongress Media.  About 2 weeks ago we decided to move the date of the London Summit by two months to give us more time to get the sponsors on board, get the agenda sorted, and then still be able to market the event to the target corporate audience (without summer holidays getting in the way).  

Obviously the confirmed speakers got to hear about this change first, and then we confirmed the new date at our last (very successful) #e20s  London Meetup.  The venue is still the same (The British Academy, Carlton House Terrace) but the new date is November 26 for the conference, with a masterclass workshop the day before at the same venue and an unconference the day after.  We had just agreed a cool venue for the unconference, and I'm just trying to confirm the same venue for the new date.   More on that shortly, and we also expect to publish the programme/brochure before the end of this week.  

Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions.  Thanks!

If you Google Terry there should be mention of his session work on his wikipedia and/or his personal website.
I don't know appearances are on record with the union and/or Terry's record company at the time and what isn't.  Wouldn't want to get anyone in trouble :).

As well as the conference, we are starting a series of regular, monthly meetups.  I am still the organiser for London Wiki Wednesdays, although that hasn't run for years.  We thought we'd broaden that out and combine it with Agile Elephant thinking.  Then an existing Meetup started back in 2012 by Will McInnes became available.  Will went off to New York and nobody picked up the ball.  The Meetup.com list became available to take on as organiser.  At the same time, Bjoern asked us to start a #e20s  Meetup.  So we combined all those overlapping ideas in to one.  The first Combined Social Business Session  London will be hosted by Yammer, sponsored by Kongress Media and will be on 7 May (and first Wednesdays from then on).  If any of you guys are in the London vicinity next month, (or any first Wednesday) we'd love to see you:
When we formed Agile Elephant, we had always wanted to start a regular series of monthly meetups around "what works?, what doesn't?, what next?" in the social business space. There are plenty of me...
