Euan helps organizations, and more importantly the people in them, get their heads around social media, social business, and the social web both inside and outside the firewall. He has unique experience in doing this from his time as Director of Knowledge Management at the BBC where they deployed social enterprise systems - forums, blogs and wikis - on a significant scale. Since leaving the BBC Euan has worked with major organizations such as Nokia, the World Bank, and NATO and has unique insights into how to make the latest technologies work for you and your organization. His book Organizations Don't Tweet was recently published and is on sale in bookshops around the world.

The great fascination, and the privilege, of work is to get to experience other people in all their varied glory. People excelling, people struggling, people working together towards goals, and people crumbling as they face their own demons.

There is one group in business who not only get to engage with other people up close, but are formally responsible for it. They get to care about the success and wellbeing of the people in their organisation, they get to steer and support fellow travellers as they navigate through the ups and downs of their lives. How exciting. How important.

What a shame we call them Human Resources. Would we get away with changing it to People People? If not, why not?
