Reimagining Collaboration: Slack, Microsoft Teams, Zoom and the Post-COVID World of Work
Phil Simon (DC 1994), Award-winning author, speaker, and advisor 

Tuesday, June 15,
2 p.m. ET, Online               

Every day, hundreds of millions of people use these über-popular collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom, and Google Workspace—but only to a limited extent. That is, as replacements to email and Skype. Put differently, more than a year into the pandemic, most people are still merely scratching the surface of what these powerful collaboration hubs can do. Rare is the company that has realized even one-quarter of their benefits.

Blame ignorance, not malice. Organizations, executives, and rank-and-file employees have lacked a holistic framework to fully understand the remarkable power of these new collaboration hubs, much less unleash them.

Drawing on lessons from his most recent book Reimagining Collaboration, he’ll demonstrate in this webinar how to:

  • Unleash the power of collaboration hubs such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Zoom
  • Learn how to think more holistically about collaboration via hubs and spokes
  • Use these hubs to eliminate email for internal communications and make your organization more transparent
  • Create a powerful knowledge repository for your organization

You are required to register for this event. The confirmation email will have a Zoom link.

Register by Monday, June 14
