An important event for New York area communicators

ImageAs Editor of simply-communicate.com, I had the chance to attend the Intranet Global Forum on several occasions.

This year’s event (October 24-25) will continue to offer valuable case studies to any communicator facing the challenging task of re-launching the corporate intranet.

Just as we all want an engaging user experience with our external tools, employees expect the same offerings internally: seamless navigation, interactivity and a strong search function to name a few.

Prescient Digital Media and IABC will be presenting an impressive lineup including case studies from AIG, Pitney Bowes and Philips. I had the chance to interview Philips’ Dennis Agusi earlier this year and I can guarantee you’ll be inspired by the company’s innovative digital communications endeavors.

My old friend, Shel Holtz, is one of the keynote speakers and he’ll also be presenting a workshop on Day One about employee ambassador programs and the intranet. 

If you’re an intranet manager and you’re baffled by SharePoint or you’re looking to create the perfect social intranet on another platform, you can be sure to get some interesting insight from the Prescient Digital team.

And of course, there will be plenty of networking opportunities at the conference! Get ready to connect and share ideas with your fellow communications professionals.

Look out for my live tweets during next week’s conference and a re-cap of the event on a follow-up blog post.
