Our speakers will discuss how to navigate an online rebrand, the journey to an omnichannel world, and the story of a 'wandering web manager'...

Communicating effectively across cultures

A key theme this year will be the challenges of communicating across cultures. We will also be considering the ongoing challenges and opportunities posed by measurement, governance, and editorial strategy. The immensely popular UX clinic, run by Jon Dodd, will be returning for a second year.

We will, as ever, have one eye on the future while maintaining a clear focus on the issues facing online communications teams today.

Perhaps most importantly, the conference offers a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas with peers from the world of online corporate communications in a relaxed, vendor-free environment.
