Geoff Ables Selected as Keynote Speaker and Session Leader at SharePoint Engage 2017 in Raleigh, NC

SharePoint Engage 2017 in Raleigh, NC will feature Geoff Ables as a keynote speaker and session leader. The event is scheduled for October 24-25, 2017.

SharePoint Engage Raleigh 2017 will be held at the Embassy Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/Brier Creek in Raleigh, NC on October 24-25, 2017. SharePoint Institute is hosting the conference. SharePoint Engage has been organized for SharePoint users to network, collaborate, and exchange with other SharePoint professionals, while gaining knowledge about SharePoint and its uses to increase business productivity. There are three learning tracks: SharePoint project management and business analysis, real-world SharePoint user application, and advanced topics and the future of SharePoint.

Geoff Ables, Managing Partner of C5 Insight, is delivering the Keynote Address, “Reimagining Productivity: Finding Digital Workplace Success in an Unlikely Place.” He will discuss how to prepare for the future of work, looking at how people, and not technology, will be a key factor in the next generation of working together. Everyone wants to be more efficient and effective in their daily work, and Ables will talk about the perfect storm that’s brewing and how impending changes will transform not only the way people work, but the very work itself.

Ables will also lead the session, “CPR for SharePoint: How to Improve SharePoint Adoption.” In this session he will provide an in-depth look into why collaboration tools such as SharePoint fail to meet expectation and what organizations can do to get struggling intranet projects back on track, forge new connections, become more productive, increase employee engagement, and build a lasting culture of collaboration. Attendees will learn:

  • 5 trends that are affecting collaboration today
  • The mistakes being made by many organizations and how to avoid them
  • 10 tips and practical ideas to apply that will get struggling projects back on track

Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle, Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process, and technology to transform a business into a workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at
