The 2011 SORCE User Conference took place on 31 March and 1 April at the Madjeski Hotel in Reading, and we are pleased to say it was a very successful and well attended conference.
Our keynote speaker Euan Semple delivered an excellent speech. His thoughts and ideas on social media and how it can help to create an internal community were both thought provoking and inspiring.
As always, the conference provided an excellent opportunity to meet many of our customers and discuss their existing and future intranet requirements. The event also enabled our customers to network with like minded individuals, helping them gain ideas and inspiration for their intranets. The Application Showcase workshop proved to be particularly popular, as it gave delegates an insight into the applications that some of our clients have created which have enabled them to achieve their business objectives.
The SORCE awards are now a conference tradition, and this year’ winners were as follows:-
Best Communications Intranet – Thomas Cook
Best Strategic Vision – HCA Healthcare
Best overall use of SORCE – Oasis Healthcare
Intranet hero’s – Sally Roberts – Macfarlanes Solicitors and Teri-Ann Grange – East & N Hertfordshire NHS Trust.
Best Branding – Medical Research Council (MRCT)
Congratulations to all of them!
John Nicklin, Managing Director at SORCE said “Our customers are from a variety of industries but they all come to the conference with the same idea in mind, to maximise the impact of their intranet and engage their users. Our aim is that by giving our customers the opportunity to view other intranets they will come away with exciting new ideas that they can take away and implement themselves.”
