This is VoiceCon’s last year as VoiceCon. On this — the 20th anniversary of the VoiceCon conference — Fred Knight, GM/co-chair of VoiceCon, and the publisher of NoJitter.com, announced this morning that VoiceCon will henceforth be called Enterprise Connect.
Though VoiceCon’s name change won’t improve the way you do business or help you do your job better, it is indicative of a geniune shift in how we communicate both professionally and personally.
Communications has become an omnipresent force – the likes of which we haven’t seen…since the Internet. We no longer merely consider the multi-modal ways to reach out to one another, we’re locking available technologies into the natural order of our lives and are proactively seeking out new, innovative communications tools to meet both professional and personal obligations. Even my nine-year old asks me, “Isn’t there an app for that?”
As Fred pointed out, communications are transforming business and he and his team are confident they’ve picked the right name and one that will last. I think they’re right.
