Attendees will gather in small groups for detailed conversations about the intranet priorities most relevant to their firms. We encourage breakout attendees to not only talk about, but also show each other, relevant aspects of their firm’s Intranets. To facilitate this kind of sharing, please consider bringing a laptop or tablet through which you can access your firm’s Synthesis Intranet.

Using Knowledge Architecture’s Firm Priorities and Performance from Leadership Playbook as a guide, you’ll identify bright spots in your firm’s strategic internal communications practices. At the end of the working session, we’ll come back together and learn what’s working in the larger community.
