On Thursday 24th June 2010 Interact and Bron Afon Community Housing are co-hosting a free seminar for housing associations wanting to unlock the secrets of a successful intranet.

Showcasing Bron Afon Community Housing’s successful intranet, the seminar offers a unique opportunity to take a detailed look at their intranet and the chance to learn what approach they took from defining their intranet requirements through to the supplier selection and implementation.

The seminar will provide a great learning experience by offering delegates the opportunity to:

  • Listen to Bron Afon Community Housing’s intranet experiences and discover how they used their new intranet to build a community ‘hub’ of internal communication and collaboration.
  • Learn how to avoid intranet and communications pitfalls and the importance of having an ongoing development plan aligned to your organisation’s objectives.
  • See the structure, homepage layouts, staff directory and all the tools that have made a real difference to internal communications, employee engagement and the way the organisation operates.
  • Discover what intranet tools they use to encourage innovation and highlight employee achievements.
  • See their successful intranet, ‘Buzz’, in action and meet the team behind the scenes.
  • Learn how to create and maintain an effective intranet environment.
  • See the intelligent intranet technology which powers Bron Afon’s intranet.

There will also be an opportunity for delegates to attend a networking lunch and the chance to talk to the Intranet Team at Bron Afon as well as test drive Interact Intranet Software.

Commenting on the event Matt McCourty, Intranet Consultant with Interact, said:

“This seminar will present a valuable insight on how to select and implement an effective housing association intranet . Case Studies are one of the best formats to share with an audience a real life example of how to achieve intranet success. To be able to see Bron Afon’s intranet in action and learn how it helped transform internal communications is an opportunity too good to miss”

The seminar will be of benefit to anyone in housing associations or RSLs who is involved with intranet planning, management, administration and content of intranet.
