Thanks for visiting the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) website. You'll see this post may refer to the "Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF)," the "Digital Workplace Forum (DWF)" or "IBF Live." But that doesn't match our website name!

In a nutshell, we merged IBF and DWF into one service and changed our name to "Digital Workplace Group." The new name represents the broader set of services we've grown to offer, beyond an original focus on just intranets. We also changed the name of our monthly webinar from "IBF Live" to "Digital Workplace Live."

Although we've relabelled things, we're proud of our decade+ history and have left this page intact. Enjoy your time on our site and please contact us with any questions or comments.

16th February 2012, New York and London

The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) is pleased to announce that Paul Miller, CEO and Founder of the Digital Workplace Forum and the Digital Workplace Group has been invited to give a keynote talk at the forthcoming Melcrum Digital Communication Summit.

Melcrum’s Digital Communication Summit will focus on the role of communicators in building an engaged and collaborative workforce in the digital workplace. It takes place in London on the 27-28 March 2012.

Paul Miller said “I’m looking forward to speaking at the Digital Communication Summit. Melcrum’s events are always excellent, and provide an exciting opportunity to swap notes with thought leaders in the internal communications area.”

“My keynote is titled the ‘Collaborative Workplace’. Technology is currently transforming work itself. It’s changing the way leaders communicate and employees collaborate, moving from the confines of the physical office to a new Digital Workplace. I’ll be looking at what we can expect to see in 2012 as the world of intranets and digital communication start to evolve.”

Miller will be drawing on the insights contained in his new book “The Digital Workplace: How Technology is Liberating Work” which is due for publication in March.

Paul Miller will also present his keynote at Melcrum’s Digital Communications Summit on May 2-3 in San Francisco.
