Intranet Now – a new event for comms and intranet people

We are really proud to sponsor Intranet Now. We know Wedge Black and Brian Lamb are incredibly knowledgeable about all things intranet. So here’s a first, recognising a gap in the event calendar; they have created a new intranet conference for the UK that’s independent and focused on internal communications, as well as intranet good practice.

CIPR Inside members, look out for your weekly email from us on Tuesday 22 July – we’ve got a special offer with Intranet Now for our members. You’ll need to act quickly as it’s limited.

So what is Intranet Now?logo-intranet-now

Wedge Black explained what the event is all about:

Intranet Now’s strapline is ‘a conference for comms and intranet people’, highlighting the importance of digital communication skills.

The intranet is not one channel, but dozens of different digital channels that reach different audiences around the organisation. Comms professionals have to reach audiences with diverse needs, and the intranet is an established yet every-developing communication, collaboration, and engagement platform.

Amid the intranet doyens, you’ll hear from Sharon O’Dea (Digital communications at Standard Chartered), CIPR qualified communicator, and Virginia Henry (Knowledge and learning manager at Unltd), and there will be presentations from The Children’s Trust, Which? and from Telefonica. All focused on engaging people and supporting communication throughout the organisation.

Beyond the presentations, the afternoon turns everything around and makes the audience members the participants. Group discussions will give you the opportunity to raise your pain-points and ask for working examples from other delegates. As with any good comms, Intranet Now is about multi-way conversation, not merely broadcasting.

Intranet Now will be held at the Radisson Blu Portman Square hotel, a short walk from Marble Arch Tube station. The standard tickets are priced at £120, which is incredible for a central London venue. But the early-bird tickets give you 50% off right now.

Please act quickly to secure the best price.

Intranet Now is sponsored by CIPR Inside and has been created from scratch by Brian Lamb and Wedge.


Thanks Wedge.
