Paris, June 6-7, 2017 Zapnito worked with the OECD to create knowledge network for conversations about building better policies with experts and members. 

Here is an excerpt and link to the welcome message:

Welcome Message:
The Forum Network at www.OECD-FORUM.org

Welcome to The Forum Network, an entirely new digital concept designed for people wishing to help shape better policies for better lives–throughout the year!

The OECD’s mission to help improve policymaking is timeless, but the ways in which we inform those policies never stop evolving. For much of our early existence policy advice at the OECD was kept among experts, formulated in closed rooms, and communicated in formal dispatches to member countries. We spoke, our members listened.

Charles Thiede

CEO & Co-Founder, Zapnito Ltd.

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.
