Social Business in the UK

February 17, 2011

I am here in London!   The internet in UK is worth 100B pounds!  It is projected to grow to 20% by 2015 of GDP. 

I saw Salvation Army’s use of Social Business with a group of youth that were brought from 80+ countries to get together to brainstorm in person and continued the discussion socially through communities.

I met with City University and saw University Professors and staff collaborating online for innovation.

I checked out  Moshi Monster based on London.  1 in 3 kids in the UK have adopted a Moshi Monster.  It is the faster growing community for kids!

In the globally connected index, UK sits at #6.

London is the top Twitter city in the world.

Have you seen this one on the Connected UK?

I cannot wait to come back and host a Social Business Breakfast in 2Q!!!

Let me hear your UK Social Business Stories!!!
