SMiLE London Workshop - the go-to conference for internal communicators

Join the BrightStarr team at this year's smilelondon Workshop this May.

The go-to conference for internal communicators, SmileLondon, is back and this time there's an exciting format for you to get your teeth into. The day will be full of insightful and interactive workshops. Our workshop will be run in the Platform channel, at 11.30am.

How do you Design a Digital Workplace Using an Out-of-the-Box Platform?, 11.30am - 13.00pm

With 80% of companies having the same basic intranet requirements, it’s no wonder so many are looking to out-of-the-box (OOTB) solutions now. This interactive workshop will walk you through everything you need to know about designing a digital workplace using out-of-the-box technology while ensuring you meet your company requirements.

We’re breaking down our 90 minute session into three key phases:

Part 1Out of the Box vs Custom – How do you find the right platform for you? Does OOTB mean throwing your design handbook out of the window? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Part 2How do you get started? – We’ll discuss how to lay the right foundations for an OOTB intranet project to ensure it derives the most value, talking through the approach and techniques we use with our own clients.

Part 3OOTB Intranet Story with Wiggle – We’ll hear from global sport’s retailer Wiggle as they discuss the process of choosing and deploying an out of the box intranet solution. How did they ensure the solution met their unique needs? Did they have to make any sacrifices with design? What success have they seen since launching?

We’ll be keeping this session very interactive, with the chance to ask questions throughout. Challenge our consultants with your burning questions and leave with practical advice.

This event is now sold out - we hope to see you at another event soon!
