Some of the sessions include:
* Opening Keynote: Collaborate with Confidence – Nick Goudy, Chief Operating Officer, AvePoint EMEA – Collaboration across borders is fundamental to business success. The ability
to work closely with customers to create strong advocates and direct future vision has led to some of the most groundbreaking innovations in our market.

Learn how to smash barriers to productivity and unlock the next wave of innovation from your most important asset – your employees.
* Unlocking the Value of Social – Carole Dohan, Marketing Manager, Unified Communications, Microsoft – In a world where the pace of innovation will continue to accelerate, it’s more important than ever for companies to be more nimble and agile.

Is your company ready to unlock the value of social?
* BYOD/Governance in the Field – Jonathan Orroi, Microsoft SharePoint Consultant, HP – Bring your own device is a hot topic in today’s age of consumerisation. IT is currently reacting but needs to deal with security and manageability concerns. This session will show you how to address concerns and how SharePoint can be part of the solution.
Boost Enterprise Collaboration with Social & Search – Arnold De Ploey, Managing Consultant EIM & UC, Devoteam – Enterprise collaboration comes in different flavours, many of them involving today’s hypes: social, mobility, search & big data, and cloud.
