“The Power of Collaboration: Transform your Organization with Social Media " with Tony Bingham
Program Description:Today, the majority of learning within organizations is informal and often occurs simply by asking people how to do things. Social media provide an exciting and cost-efficient way to facilitate and capture this informal learning.

Indeed, understanding how to implement and leverage today's collaborative learning technologies is a vital strategic advantage for businesses of all sizes and disciplines.
In this thought-provoking session, Tony Bingham, President and CEO of the Association for Talent Development, will illustrate how several diverse organizations are using social media to develop their talent, support informal learning, and build community.
