#simplysummit #bionicbusiness

  • Now in its 10th year it is the highlight of the IC calendar attracting over 1,000 attendees.

What’s it all about?

The simplysummit is Europe’s largest and most popular conference for mid to senior-level specialists across Internal Communication, Digital, HR, IT and Corporate Communications.

If you have, or want to have, a key role in your organisation’s digital transformation, this is the event for you. Only here can you see what the world’s largest companies are doing to drive communication, collaboration and engagement during the biggest challenge in the history of organisational development.

Those who will thrive, will be those who are able to adapt and respond rapidly to the shift which has been forced upon us due to the global pandemic. Those who don’t, or choose not to invest, will be left behind.

For 15 years, simplycommunicate has been the leading and independent authority when it comes to digital workplace communications. We’ll give you access to best practice, new skills and the opportunity to network with the brightest minds and leading thinkers in this space.

Case studies, thought leaders, stories of failure and success – and the chance to put your questions to the experts and to network with your peers.

Why should you attend?

At a time when most businesses have had to undergo a rapid transition towards becoming a virtual enterprise, there has been little time to think and even less time to take stock.

With a rapid acceleration of the availability of new software and tools, demand for remote working, and an increased focus on improved employee experience, the digital workplace market is anticipated to grow by up to 12% over the next seven years.

As a result, the need for organisational transition towards more robust and streamlined technologies has never been greater. If you want to:

  • Be prepared for the next stage of business and internal communications
  • Introduce a new digital workplace technology or make the most of what you have
  • Understand how you can help people AND technology thrive within the workplace
  • Meet and network with peers

We’ll give you access to case studies, vendors, research & peers to help you succeed in the next stage of your journey.

Introducing the Bionic Business

Now that millions of previously office-based workers are operating from home, the roles of the internal communication, HR and IT communities have never been more important and their acceleration to business critical status as the eyes, ears and central nervous system of the business has been unprecedented.

When people finally return to the office (at least part-time), it will be those businesses who best combine technological with human engagement that will be the gold standard.

No longer can we be solely driven by technology, similarly, no longer is it sufficient for people to work ignoring the new technologies that can help them connect, communicate and collaborate.

At this year’s summit, we will present the findings from our Bionic Business research sharing with you the traits which make up the tools, behaviours and strategies for the next era of communication and engagement.
