The next step in the EBG evolution is here. EBG | Network launch EBG | Community. EBG | Network was founded in 2010 with the aim to bring together people from different functions who rarely meet. People who together are able to improve business efficiency and outcome effect the most. From the start summits, webinars and interviews were held in Swedish but as the company grew it was evident that all communication ideally should be in English. This is how large organizations are today – multi cultural and often globally spread.
EBG | Network launch EBG | Community
Today EBG | Network proudly present EBG | Community – a way to continue to connect peers and experts that meet during EBG summits. During a normal EBG summit about 40 round table discussions – EBG call them Theme Discussions – are hosted by knowledgeable moderators.
For over 10 years EBG have been asked to keep groups of people together after the summit end and the attempts have been many. LinkedIn groups, email groups, Zoom groups, groups enabled by practitioners and so on and so forth. But – you are all very busy and you are all spread across Europe.
This is why EBG | Community is being developed. No rocket science other than that this community is focusing on You who attend an EBG summit. Keeping groups of people together that share a common interest. It is of course voluntary to join, but imagine the power based on the concrete experiences shared in very specific areas!
Who can join EBG | Community
Anyone can register to join the Community – but only you who attend an EBG summit will be able to join the groups of people continuing the discussions after a summit.Anna Bjärkerud, Founder EBG | Network
Create new groups
You who register to join EBG | Community can create new groups where you can create discussion topics of your interest. Be aware though that this itself is a challenge. When you have a community with great people (look at LinkedIn, Facebook etc) – there are so many groups and posts it is hard to find quality experience exchange. You know all those places where you have become a “member” – then what? How do yo find a needle in a haystack? A drop of water in the ocean. Where do you even start to connect with people you do not know? And if you connect – how do go from there to quality experience exchange?
What does it cost?
It doesn’t cost anything to join to date. EBG | Community is an extension of EBG Summits and is offered without cost, inviting those attending an EBG Summit.
The value proposition EBG | Network have based its entire being on is if you give you get back. If you share an experience with a peer – you will get back and that will help you tremendously! The EBG | Community groups created after each summit isn’t owned by any individual company or person. It is collective intelligence and crowd wisdom within a group of people sharing the same challenges and seeing the same opportunities.
Work in progress
As EBG | Network is a tiny but very ambitious company – bear with us as we together develop EBG | Community. We need to go through the ups and downs of registering/being added to groups/finding a structure to communicate (it is very straight forward), learning about the other competences in the groups etc.
EBG appreciate every feedback and idea and remember if you give you get back!
