The conference for people

Intranet Now

The impact of a strategic digital workplace

The tools and tactics to align your intranet with your organisation’s strategy

The independent conference for comms and intranet people

Intranet Now is for people who work on and around the digital workplace and are interested in the way organisations work.

Run for the community, by the community, Intranet Now is a place to learn, share your experience and get inspiration to take back to the office.

What it's all about

We’re back in October for our fast-paced autumn conference, with time for conversation, debate, and discussion.

At Intranet Now you can expect a one-day event which includes:

  • Around 18 sharp lightning talks – in one day, from one stage!;
  • An 18-minute keynote;
  • A panel with questions;
  • A great lunch;
  • A couple of ‘table talk’ sessions;
  • A choice of 40-minute workshop;
  • Drinks and nibbles.

If an in-house practitioner, grab a team ticket and bring your colleagues – low price, high value!

All our newsletter subscribers (who are in-house practitioners) get 10% off our conferences, join them.

Friday 4th October 2019

1 America Square, 17 Crosswall,
London EC3N 2LB

With a keynote and 18 lightning talks, there’s a lot going on

  • Ask our debate panelists a challenging question;
  • Enjoy one in-depth workshop;
  • Grab a coffee and discuss the main topics at tables.

Networking without the pain

Here’s the worst kept secret; Intranet Now is hand-made by Wedge and Lisa. That’s us. It’s just us.

We’re intranet / communications consultants who just think that ‘digital workplace’ people (whatever that means) need a place to meet and swap horror stories and successes. We all have different experiences to share, as we learn what works and what really doesn’t.

Intranet Now is for community and conversation, enquiry and investigation, while invited luminaries shine a light on the topics that matter to organisations of every size.

Lisa, James, Wedge, Steve and Rahel

Lisa on the left, with Wedge in the middle, with our fantastic peers, James Robertson, Steve Bynghall, and Rahel Bailie, at Autumn Intranet Now 2018.

We’ll be talking all things strategy, looking at how the intranet can be at the heart of the strategic digital workplace. We’ll be discussing the tools and tactics needed to align your intranet with your organisation’s strategy — and how your digital workplace helps people work better, and be better.

Join a hundred and fifty-five pros like you

Intranet Now is for the comms heroes, intranet aficionados, community champions, change makers,  knowledge managers, content owners, and the collaboration curious.

Agenda

Refer to the agenda for all the talks, debates, workshops, and table discussions.

Our autumn conference offers a fast-paced schedule throughout the morning, while we slow the pace for the afternoon to get under the hood of the difficult issues you face within your organisation, and across your digital workplace. Be ready to share your experience and challenge any assumptions asserted by speakers!

Intranet Now.

Too busy working to be strategic

Busy? Proud of the quality of your work, and feeling good about your tactical decisions?

But perhaps you’re often genuinely too busy to ‘align tactical actions to strategy’. I know that feeling.

It’s a dedicated conference centre with multiple spaces for the conference, conversations, and a workshop.

Lisa

Special Image

I’m an intranet wrangler, content designer and general comms and collaboration geek – an intranerd, if you will.

I work with some of the world’s largest organisations to improve the way they communicate – to their employees, customers, service users and other stakeholders.

I create punchy, accessible content that makes information easier to understand.

I work alongside developers, communicators and content people to deliver better digital workplaces.

I love bringing people together to help solve their technical challenges and meet others going through the same experiences – which is why I love being a director of Intranet Now.

Wedge

Special Image

I founded the Intranet Now conference in 2014, and I’m an intranet and comms consultant by day.

Since my time as a ‘corporate journalist’ and intranet manager back for a global tech company, I’ve been deeply entrenched in the intranet world.

I’ve helped plan and launch over 25 intranets, and helped dozens of organisations of every size improve their digital communications and collaboration.
