Events: Internal Communications Conference
Internal Communications Conference
Our People are Becoming More Mobile and Demand Sophisticated Technology
The fast-changing world of internal communications and how it is increasingly taking on the critical employee engagement role that has too often been neglected by those in HR. The way we communicate with our people must also change and we will look at how organisations are grappling with the challenges thrown up by the seismic changes in the way we work.
The world of internal communications has undergone a technology driven revolution over the past few years, and that revolution is continuing apace as we move to a truly digital workplace, a workplace increasingly inhabited by digital natives and impacted by adoption of emerging technologies including AI and Robotics.
As more and more millennials enter the workplace the internal communications function is continuing to take on the critical employee engagement role that has too often been neglected by those in HR. Our people are becoming more mobile and demanding access to more and more sophisticated technology.
1 Day Event
Case Study Presentations
Welcome to Engage Employee TV
We’re excited to announce that this year’s Internal Communications Conference will be broadcasted LIVE from our very own ‘Newsroom Style Studio’, complete with film crew, event host and set that makes you think you’re watching your favourite television show.
We believe in this new approach and feel it’s a refreshing alternative to pre-recorded webinars and ‘Zoom call’ events. All part of our obsession with creating the very best events and making them as engaging and informative as our traditional venue-based conferences.
2021 Topic Streams
This stream will focus on how the Covid-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for fragmentation of how and where we work, and you’ll discover how this trend is set to continue as use of new communication technologies facilitates rapid changes to the workplace and workforce.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to millions of employees who have never worked from home finding themselves doing just that. Homeworking for some will become the ‘new normal’, and communications must adapt accordingly – this stream will help you on your mission to seamlessly adapt.
A recent Engage Business Media Covid-19 impact survey highlighted that employee engagement leaders found getting their internal communications messaging right has been the single biggest challenge facing the sector. Join this stream to learn how to crack the impossible code by keeping remote workers engaged with the wider organisation.
The employee journey has never been so important, playing a crucial part in employee retention and talent development. Join us to learn how to streamline your current employee journey in order to enhance the overall employee experience.
It’s a well-known fact that engaged employees lead to loyal customers. Now more than ever, it’s critical that employees are kept engaged with the wider organisation in order to deliver the correct messages to customers. Join this stream to discover how to do this most effectively in order to gain overall competitive advantage.
In a recent survey conducted within our Engage Employee community, one third of respondents told us that they wish they’d invested in technology earlier so that they were more adaptable when Covid-19 changed the way that workplaces operate. Join this stream to discover how to utilise the technology available to you in order to transform the success of your campaigns.
Internal communications play a majority part in maintaining the wellbeing of employees and communicating how the wider organisation is there to support everyone. With remote working being the ‘new norm’, the responsibility of the internal communications department is more crucial now than ever in order to maintain support to all employees. Join us to discover methods of doing this that will ensure the wellbeing of all employees.
The ‘three R’s’ – key to engaging and retaining talent at all points in the employee journey. Join us for ideas, techniques and methods that are innovative and will transform the way that you recognise and reward employees, without breaking the bank!
The ‘workplace’ currently encompasses so many different aspects for each individual, with remote workers each having an entirely different workplace, and those who cannot work from home having a significant change in their workplaces. Join this stream to learn how to continue to communicate with every employee, delivering a consistent message and feel of culture despite the changes facing organisation.
An average workforce is never settled, with staff turnover coupled with changing demands of the modern employee meaning that the internal communications department needs to remain agile and innovative when it comes to their strategies. Now more than ever, the workforce is a changing element in all organisations, so don’t miss joining this stream to discover new ideas and initiatives.

Whooshkaa opened for business in 2016. Robert Loewenthal, former CEO of Australia’s Macquarie Radio Network built the platform to serve podcasters and audio creators with technology to manage their “on-demand” audio.
Audio hosting and particularly podcasting technology was stuck somewhere in the early 2000’s. Existing offerings didn’t provide the cost effectiveness, scale and possibilities creators had come to expect from video technology.
At the same time rapid improvements in technologies such as artificial intelligence were presenting opportunities that audio creators were missing out on.
