What others have said
We have worked with Rebecca and the Step Two team on a whole range of projects for over ten years. The combination of expertise and pragmatism has kept our team going back to them through the evolution of our digital workplace. They’ve helped us to plan and deliver significant changes and improvements, and to build our network with other intranet teams through forums and their annual conference.

When we started our intranet redevelopment journey we honestly didn’t know how we were going to get the project off the ground. The resources that Step Two made available on their website were extremely helpful but it was when Rebecca Rodgers called to see if she could help us, that our project really got going. Rebecca was instrumental in getting us on the right track with our planning. She skillfully got our novice team focused and united on the project goals by sharing her knowledge and experiences with us during workshops. Rebecca was able to impart her extensive knowledge to all of us in a way that gave us the confidence to push ahead and create an amazing intranet (on a very tight budget) that uniquely suited our organisation.

Step Two have provided a valuable and much needed service to our intranet content authors by clearly demonstrating techniques and aspects to consider when authoring content. The training has given them hands-on experience, reviewing and re-writing their own content and getting real-time feedback for areas of improvement. With these new techniques our authors can now start the journey of content improvement which will in turn create a better intranet experience for our people at Bupa.
Following a recent CMS migration we wanted to run a series of Writing for the Intranet workshops with our authors. They had never had this opportunity before and the feedback we received was very positive. The workshops not only helped develop their intranet writing, but also their wider business communication skills. I particularly liked the workshops’ focus on understanding your audience and the role of your intranet. As a result, we now have an intranet that is almost free of ‘vanity content’ and an author community that’s determined to keep it that way! Thanks Step Two.
