The New Way Tour is an eight-city seminar series designed to showcase the latest trends and best practices in Social Business.

Both tracks will address real-world best practices for leveraging Social Business inside and outside organization to help with:

  • Sales Enablement;

  • Make critical improvements to the way they market to and support customers;
  • Drive powerful social networks that can align teams with corporate strategy;
  • Drive co-innovation from customers, partners, as well as colleagues and team members; and
