By in News & Events on April 2, 2012

Hello Australia!

The Yammer on Tour team packed its bags and zipped across the world to an astounding welcome from the Aussies. With packed venues and eager participants, the Yammer on Tour Australia events in Sydney and Melbourne saw a combined attendance of over 750 people!  Yammer on Tour is an opportunity for attendees to participate in an interactive, educational and fun event and learn about the benefits of Enterprise Social Networks, all while hearing from Yammer customers on how to build an engaged and collaborative workforce. We continued our world tour this March, and loved meeting local Aussies at the Sydney and Melbourne events!

Both events kicked off with a Keynote Address from David Obrand, Yammer’s Chief Customer Officer. He presented intriguing facts about overall workforce productivity and engagement trends and dove into the future of Yammer and Enterprise Social Networks. Missed his presentation?
