Key themes for 2017

A challenge for every online manager is getting their bosses and colleagues to understand just why online communications matters, and how they must work together to make it effective.

We are delighted to have Simon Saville as our keynote speaker. Simon is just retiring after 16 years running Shell’s digital comms - not everything has been a triumph, as he will tell us, but getting governance - the art of getting one's own way - right has been key to the many successes his team had.

We also have speakers from GSK on using benchmarking and survey data to provide the evidence sceptical colleagues demand, and SAP and Aegon on generating the best quality content from colleagues around the world. We even have a magician who specialises in helping managers persuade …

As always, we also try to look forward, over the horizon. Mike Stenberg of Siemens will tell us how the group use messenger apps and bots in China, and why this is something all companies will have to get to grips with - wherever they operate.
