The lighter and brighter conference for comms and intranet people
Yes, Intranet Now is now twice a year, summer and autumn.
Intranet Now is for people who work on, and within, the digital workplace and are interested in the way organisations work.
Our first summer Intranet Now event will be our sixth conference in total, and we can’t wait to show you what we have planned.
The theme of our summer conference is about solving the right problems, with the right people and tech solutions.
Whether that’s engagement, breaking down barriers to communication or finding ways to be more productive, come talk to other people about how they’re navigating the minefield of the digital workplace.
The tools only work, if people know how to use them, right?
What's new about our summer conference
If you’ve been to an autumn Intranet Now in the past, you might have sensed that we’re experimental when it comes to our agenda, yet you’ve never experienced anything like our summer conference!
Lighter and brighter than our fast-paced autumn conference, we’ve built in more time for commentary, conversation, debate, and discussion. With fewer lightning talks from luminaries and more time devoted to you, the practitioner participants.
Our Intranet Now conference is all about learning and community, so we’ll put on:
- Only 11 sharp lightning talks;
- Two sharp key notes;
- Opportunity to get on stage to give your 60 second hot take;
- A panel debate with questions;
- A great lunch;
- A couple of ‘table talk’ sessions;
- A choice of in-depth workshop (like, 40 minutes!);
- Drinks and nibbles.
Make no mistake, this is a brand new experience with your friends and peers.
Friday 7th June 2019
1 America Square, 17 Crosswall,
London EC3N 2LB
With 2 keynotes and only 11 lightning talks, there’s more time for you
Lighter and brighter than ever before, with more time for your comments and questions:
- Get on stage and offer your ‘hot take’ for 60 seconds;
- 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.

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.
For the intranet community, by the community, join us in June for our first summer conference, and our brightest event yet.
You must’ve heard that “it’s not about the technology, it’s about the people” and that’s a truism, but the tools do matter, and we need to get a handle on them if we’re to support people properly.
Refer to the agenda for all the talks, debates, workshops, and table discussions.
Our summer conference offers a relaxed day with plenty time to discuss the issues you face within your organisation, and across your digital workplace. Be ready to share your experience and challenge any assumptions asserted by speakers!
While we love panels, we’re taking it further for summer and experimenting with a ‘build or buy’ debate.
Stand by for fresh speaker announcements in the second week of April.
I can’t think of another UK event that gives intranet practitioners the range of insight
I found the 2018 event invaluable, and now I'm presenting
The quick-fire presentations approach at Intranet Now is unique - you learn so much in such a short space of time
The best conversations happen at Intranet Now
If you’re an intranet professional looking for practical insight from your peers, I’d recommend it highly
There is no more enjoyable way to find out how little I actually know about intranets
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 also love bringing people together to help solve their technical challenges and meet others going through the same experiences – which is why I’m so pleased to be a director of Intranet Now.
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.
