The Dachis Group Social Business Summit will bring together practitioners, thought leaders, and industry experts across three different continents for an incredible event focusing on social business design.

We believe that emerging technologies are inherently changing the way we live and work. We also know that companies are struggling to find the best ways to integrate them into existing and future company strategy and innovate.  We want to hear your questions, pain points and ideas. In exchange, we’ll help prepare you to embrace social technologies, processes, and cultural change to improve your business. Our summit this March will bring together inspirational thought leadership and tactical advice to both inspire and empower you to move forward with your social strategy.

The Summit will cover topics including:

  • Scaling for social business
  • Organizing for social business
  • Crisis management in a networked world
  • Real-time communications
  • Using social to compete in the marketplace
  • Integrating social as part of your strategy
  • Business model disruption
  • Customer engagement
  • Social user experience
  • Getting value out of your technology

The events are invitation only, and seating will be offered on a limited basis. To be considered for the invitation list, please send us:
