Here’s a flavour of who you’ll see this year:

Essentially, how to influence users by integrating their needs and developing a shared emotional connection.

Sam Marshall, owner of ClearBox Consulting and a specialist in intranets and the digital workplace, will discuss how the boundaries of a modern intranet are becoming blurred by the growth of social and collaboration tools, mobile access and cloud applications. In this evolving landscape, intranets remain highly important, but the roadmap needs to plan for the digital workplace as a whole. Based on hands-on experience of developing strategy, Sam will show how approaching this from an employee perspective can bring clarity and purpose, but also how the emphasis needs to be as much on management as on technology.
