Unite 21 day 2 leads with the theme "Engage". A packed schedule of keynotes, roundtables, and panel Q&As will leave you with the tools and expertise to engage employees with meaningful experiences. Ask internal communications experts your trickiest burning questions, learn how to connect frontline and HQ with a progressive culture, drive adoption with data-driven decisions, and get an exclusive glimpse of the cogs behind the magic of a next-generation intranet – Day 2 has something for everyone.

Start day 2 by taking your fitness to the next level with high-intensity interval training live from London. Fearne Cotton will then lead us into day 2 with her keynote, Fearne's happy workplace, offering wisdom and insight on achieving happiness, balance, and wellness in the modern world of work. Day 2 will also include a session from Crayola on Re-imagining the employee experience and our unmissable keynote with Tan France on diversity and inclusion: The power of difference.

Will Saville, Unily's CEO, will kickstart day 3 before leading into panels, roundtables, and talks from Fortune 500 enterprises that offer first-hand advice and examples of employee experience success.

At day 3 of Unite, we unveil the future of Unily and host two panel sessions including our Future of intranets session with analysts from: Forrester, Digital Workplace Group, and Clearbox.
