Rich, engaging in-person workshops

The central element of full membership are the in-person workshops that are held in Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. These sessions are fully facilitated to deliver powerful insights and include topics like personalisation, stakeholder management and best practices for design of home pages. Sessions are three times a year.

Half-day workshops

Your full membership includes two facilitated half-day workshops covering member-selected topics. These workshops are an opportunity for you to explore and problem solve key challenges with your local peers, be exposed to emerging trends and new ideas, and receive ‘insider-only’ tours of intranet and digital workplace solutions.

One day techniques intensive

The full day workshop covers the latest techniques and best practice in digital workplace strategy, design, management and technology. These immersive sessions will super-charge your skillset, giving you the tools and knowledge you need to make a bigger impact in your role, and add increased value to your organisation.

Our community

Online interest groups

Our online interest groups are structured around specialist topics.  They complement the face-to-face chapters by providing an opportunity for members to take a deep-dive into areas that directly support their day-to-day work. More than just online chat spaces, we harness the collective knowledge of the international Forum community to share ideas and experiences, find answers to your questions, and connect via specific skillsets.

The interest groups are hosted via our dedicated online platform and have a mix of online discussions, presentations and workshops. Our existing interest groups include:

FAQs

How does annual membership work?
Membership runs for twelve months, from the first of the month after your payment has been received (eg. from 1st September to 31st August). You’ll receive a renewal invoice for the next year about one month before your renewal date.

Is membership for individuals or organisations?
Membership is obtained by organisations, rather than individual practitioners. The level of membership determines how many people from the organisation can join. For example, single membership entitles one staff member to join. Team-3 or Team-5 membership enables multiple staff members to join. If a staff member leaves or changes roles, membership can be transferred as needed.

When and where are in-person workshops run?
In-person workshops are held at city centre locations in Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney. Half-day workshops run from 9am to 1pm and full-day techniques intensives from 9am to 4pm. In-person workshops are held three times a year, and full details with address and agenda are published on our Community platform.

What can I share with my team?
As intranets and digital workplaces are by definition hidden from public view, it is important to protect the confidentiality and privacy of members and their sites. The ethos of the Forum is to ‘take away the learnings but respect the confidentiality of the people and/or organisations sharing’. You are therefore welcome to share resources within your direct team or organisation, but not beyond. Screenshots remain the property of the organisation sharing.

How is my privacy protected?
As convenors of the Forum, Step Two will protect the privacy of members, and will never pass on details to any third party. Members must never share details with a third party without the express permission of the member.

Who can join full membership?
Anyone who is able to attend our in-person workshop locations will get benefit from full membership. You will also have access to all online events and content.  For all others, online membership might be for you!

Why is membership not open to consultants or vendors?
We are a vendor-neutral organisation and the community is based on business needs, not specific technology solutions.

Who can I contact if I have a question about the Step Two Forum?
