Peter Lyon - Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) launch of its intranet, The Hive in March 2012 and results from the Worldwide Intranet Challenge (WIC) is a great example of how a medium-sized company can develop a successful intranet no matter what budget. Ranked overall in the top 5% of all intranets, Peter Lyons, Internal Communications Coordinator from MCEC will talk about reasons for The Hive’s success in the WIC with a focus on employee engagement.
4.40 - 5.05 Intranets, the 'signal' and the 'noise'.. delivering the 'signal'
Jillian Hiscock - Department of Transport - Latest research from the WIC suggests that while online collaboration and the social possibilities offered by modern-day intranets are important, the value of well structured and ‘qualified’ content such as procedures and work instructions, is even more important. The Department of Transport completed the Worldwide Intranet Challenge (WIC) in April this year and ranked in the top 15% for the topics: overall value, completing common work tasks, policies & procedures and information for new starters (ranked #8). Jillian Hiscock, Intranet Manager, will show the DOT intranet and explain how they did it!
5.05 - 5.30 - The contextual intranet: the future of intranets
Andrew Wright - Worldwide Intranet Challenge - Just as Amazon provides a 'Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought' list of suggestions based on a customer's previous purchases, so too should intranets deliver content to staff based on their unique profiles and preferences. In this session, Andrew will take you through a new approach to intranets, showing how this can be done and how it will increase the use of your intranet.
5.30 - 6.00 - Drinks/Finger Food/Networking
