Every year, Step Two is committed to bringing the best of the best to the stage of our world-class conference. This year, Intranets2017 is proving to be no exception!
Our international lineup features speakers who are changing the shape of collaboration, networking, UX, design, technical platforms, SharePoint, content management and all things digital.
And one thing we want to highlight: these aren’t speakers picked out just because of their high-profile employers. In our travels around the globe, we’ve seen all these speakers present, and we know first-hand how powerful their messages are.
