Dentsu Aegis Network’s intranet gets awarded

NEON, a global communications platform and collaborative project by Corporate Communications and Technology at Dentsu Aegis Network, wins the IoIC Awards 2014 for Best Intranet.


The best internal communicators in the UK gathered at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank to acclaim the winners of the IoIC Awards 2014.

Institute President Suzanne Peck presented the awards on “the night when we celebrate the good – and the downright amazing – in internal communication today”.

She said the awards covered the channels, strategies and people that are making a difference – and judging had been tough.

Winner of the Best Intranet category is NEON, Dentsu Aegis Network’s global communications platform.
