We have an incredible line up of Yammer customer speakers that have a variety of experiences and types of organizations from across the world. They’ll share best practices, lessons learned and provide practical guidance that you’ll be able to take and use at your organization. You’ll also hear directly from Microsoft , including the product teams who build Yammer and learn more about the future of products like Microsoft Viva. You might see new faces and familiar brands that have great stories to share. Take a closer look at all the presenters here.
Nominate your colleagues for the Community Champion Award
The Yammer Community Champion Award is an opportunity to recognize passionate community managers around the world who are committed to employee engagement, knowledge sharing, and collaboration in their Yammer networks and communities.
As part of our first Yammer Community Festival, we will announce regional winners of the Yammer Community Champion Award.
Can you think of anyone who deserves this title? Tell us who you think should win this award!
There will be one winner per regional session and winners will be contacted in advance of session that they have been ‘shortlisted’ as a top contender for the Yammer Community Champion Award. This is to ensure the winners are present to virtually accept their award. Based on network size, the number of nominations per organization is not limited as there may be many opportunities within a company to submit a nomination.
We’re running the event as an interactive Microsoft Teams meeting with Q&A enabled. Bring your questions and ideas as we want to make the chat component active, with many voices heard. Speakers are there to prompt conversations in chat and be prepared to unmute!
“We are so excited to present the future of Yammer to this community. We’ve heard from customers like you, that you want to connect and learn from the Yammer community of customers that exist across the globe. This is a great opportunity to showcase your success and learn from others in the community. We look forward to seeing you all at the festival!”
