This post is the outcome of a chat that I had with John Popham where we met to talk about what the Sociable Organisation idea is, where it came from, what difference it is making and where it may lead.
Many thanks to John for taking the time to meet and producing the podcast.
This is the first in what may be a series of podcasts in which I talk to people whose work I particularly admire about some aspect of what they are doing.
In this podcast, I met up with Phil Jewitt, Senior Communications Manager, with Leeds City Council, to get some insights into the Sociable Organisation project which he is leading. This is a project which is using social media to drive collaboration and co-creation, both within the city council, and across the city involving partners.
There are some lovely stories in here which illustrate the point I make continually that telling stories usually has more impact that quoting statistics and writing reports.
Please let me have any comments below.
