Since early 2008, the Regional Group Denmark has offered EACD members many events.

Losing control versus gaining relevance?

Tuesday 16 May 2017
Regional Event

Time: 16.00 – 18.30
Venue: Kommunikation & Sprog, Hauser Plads 20, 3., 1127 Kbh. K.

Choose new paths for your internal communication. Global intranets and internal social media like Yammer and Workplace will become a must for the international companies of the future.

Due to new technological possibilities, internal communication is undergoing rapid development that will change it forever. The development is a democratisation process, i.e. internal communication is following in the footsteps of our private communication: Mass emails with bunches of CCs will be replaced by feeds and apps.

But what are the pitfalls of focusing on social media for internal communication? Will companies dare to open their social media platforms and let their employees communicate freely? And how can digital platforms support knowledge sharing and co-creation across work functions, organisational boundaries and physical locations in different countries and cultures?

We are delighted to announce our speakers:
