Key conference details

Praise from previous years

“The opportunity Intranets 2013 provided me in regard to the sharing of information, ideas, designs and most of all the opportunity to meet people who are passionate about what they do just like me, was awesome! Thanks Step Two for organising a great event.”

“I got my monies worth on the morning of day 1 – the rest was a bonus! The conference was so fantastic it was ridiculous”

“This was a great conference which I enjoyed immensely! The level of talent that was oozing from all the speakers was totes inspirational! Not to mention how smoothly and professionally the event ran, from the friendly approachable Step Two staff to the venue and wonderful food (+Coffee!) Thank you for having me!”

“Simply the most relevant, vibrant and practical conference of its kind. This will be a permanent fixture in my annual calendar.”

“Intranets 2013 renewed my faith in an intranet’s ability to deliver real benefits for organisations. When you see what is not only possible, but actually being delivered by non-tech companies, it’s inspiring, thought provoking and challenging. Can’t wait for Intranets 2014. I hope to have something worth sharing!”

“One of the best conferences I have ever attended. Flawlessly run, great networking opportunities, experienced and relatable presentations with practical demonstrations and examples. Always come away very inspired and motivated. Thanks Step Two!”

“No vendors. Great sense of community. Excellent venue.”
