Digital Workplace 24 (DW24) in 2015 - May 20 and 21

Okay okay, so this time last year we may have pulled your leg a little, with our “World’s Best Intranet” prank for My Beautiful Intranet 2014. But it was April Fool’s Day, and our mischievous side was allowed out to play and frolic and caper.

This time round, we’re a year older. We’re more mature. More refined. So I want to be absolutely crystal clear: what I’m about to share is no joke. If you could see my expression, you’d see that I am wearing my serious face.

Digital Workplace 24 is Digital Workplace Group’s free, online, global conference taking place over 24 hours from May 20th to 21st this year. Every hour will see great insights and case studies from practitioners and thought leaders who are leading the way in the Digital Renaissance of Work.

We can now release the line-up of our 14 live digital workplace tour presenters, who will each be beaming their screens on to your screens, to walk and talk us through the intranets, apps, platforms and portals that make up their own digital workplaces. Practitioners will join us from companies such as Adidas, Adobe, EY, American Express and IKEA. For free. In real time. For free. Again, this is not an April Fool’s joke. Serious face.

Here is each of those live tours, showing the hour they will be online, with prime times highlighted in blue for each timezone. For those who still aren’t convinced, you can find out more about Digital Workplace 24. For those who are convinced, register for your (free) pass now. Members of the DWG Member Forum can also register via the private DWG Member Extranet.
