Plans are underway for our next conference. We’re not quite ready to put out a call for speakers, but please ensure you’re on our mailing list for when we do. We’re talking to potential sponsors and, considering previous sponsors and some new companies that have have shown interest, it looks like we’re going to have a solid foundation for the conference.
No cancellation plans as yet
Our confidence has dropped to 91%, as we consider the work involved in engaging speakers and sponsors during the ongoing ‘soft lockdown’. We’re keen to put on a full and reasonably normal event in October, but we’re concerned about the close personal proximity that a conference creates. Perhaps by October details will become clear but of course we need to plan now, and so we’re in deep discussions, and looking for expert gudiance.

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 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.
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!
Stand by for fresh speaker announcements in the second week of April.

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 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.
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.
