“I’m going to go as far as taking annual leave on those days and stocking up on the energy drinks. That’s how excited I am about taking part in this event! :D” – Zeb Ahmed from Bank of New Zealand.

Maybe you haven’t quite started stocking up on energy drinks yet, but Zeb’s idea might not be a bad one. She’s talking about IBF 24 – the Digital Workplace Group’s signature 24-hour online interactive broadcast that features more than 20 live tours of the world’s most innovative intranets and presentations by global technology and social media thought leaders.

Free to air, IBF 24 2011 will kick off at 11:00 a.m. BST on May 17 and will conclude 24 hours later. The event rolls virtually around the world, starting in London, and then moving to broadcast centres in New York, San Francisco, Australia, Amsterdam, and finally circling back to London for its conclusion.

Having a global virtual online gathering allows you to have access to exclusive information and invaluable insight without having to expend time and financial resources on travel.

More than 20 live tours of the world’s most innovative intranets will take place, including tours of Google, BT, IKEA, BP, Abbott, Oxfam International, Barclays, Kellogg, Duke Energy, Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, AMP Asset Management and Booz Allen Hamilton.

In addition, studio guests and interviews with thought leaders globally will include Charlene Li, social media thought leader and co-author of Groundswell, talking about her latest book “Open Leadership;” Lee Bryant, keynote speaker and co-founder and Director of social business consultancy Headshift; and Brian Solis, principal at Altimeter Group, new media thought leader and author of Engage.  Additional speakers include James Robertson of Step Two Designs, Wayne Clark of Best Companies and Gary Swart of oDesk.

Dont’ delay! Save your place at IBF 24 by registering today. Keep an eye on this space for more event details and announcements as well.

Follow the advice of one participant tweeted last year: “Gutted I’m going to miss heaps more of #ibf24. It’s been awesome so far. Wish I’d booked out the whole time to attend properly!”

And Zeb might be able to point you in the direction of a good supplier of energy drinks.

  1. Don’t know about being able to find a good supplier of energy drinks guys… might have bought em out already! 😉
    I am so excited about this event. I only caught a small part of it last year and still regret missing out on the rest. NO such regrets this time around 🙂
    A MUST for any professional who touches the digital workspace.

  2. We are so excited to have you back for a longer run in 2011! So who else have you recruited to the 24-hour club? We’d love to bring you and the coffee klatch on to the program periodically to offer perspectives/comments as the 24 hours unfold.
