In a couple of weeks time we will have our very first series of Yammer on Tour events here in Australia.
A lot has changed since I started with Yammer this time, last year.
You may have seen the infographic floating round the web a month ago, Yammer ‘pretty much everything tripled‘ or our recent announcement Yammer raises $85 million in new venture funding. Thing are growing fast and it’s exciting to see Australia is also a part of that.
Just last week we welcomed Sarah Forsterling, our sixth Customer Success Manager to the local team.
It has been a pretty interesting last year for enterprise social networking in Australia. I’ve certainly noticed a shift in organisational mindset from ‘why do we want social?’ to ‘okay we get social, we need it, but how do we do it well inside the enterprise?’
If you are using Yammer in your organisation or thinking about it, you should definitely pencil in our March events (27th in Sydney and 29th in Melbourne). It’s an opportunity to hear from other customers how their company made the journey to an ESN – always much more fascinating to hear directly from organisations managing the challenge, rather than me telling you about it!
I also invite you to join our Yammer on Tour Australia external network where the community, including speakers and attendees, are hosting discussions in the lead-up to the events. Sarah Forsterling and I are community managing the network, do let me know if you need a hand.
See you at Yammer on Tour!
