Communicating across Teams, Slack and your intranet

Webinar with Sam Marshall of ClearBox, for Igloo Software

28th August — 8am PDT / 9am MDT / 10am CDT / 11am EDT / 4pm BST / 5pm CEST — for 30 minutes

The growth of real-time chat tools such as Slack and Microsoft Teams means new opportunities for how we keep in touch in the workplace. But for corporate communicators, as well as employees, these tools can also introduce new complexities. Should you post news where the audience is, or keep each tool segregated? Are discussions best kept to moderated forums, or should we be encouraging more open exchanges?

In this webinar we’ll take a succinct and impartial look at what these tools offer, and consider how they impact more traditional digital channels such as intranets. Join guest presenter Sam Marshall to learn:

  • What chat tools do well (and not so well) and who should use them
  • The potential for chat tools as a corporate communication channel
  • How to choose between posting news to an intranet, chat channel, or both
  • Ideas for coaching leaders in how to engage through these new channels.

Places are limited.

If you can’t attend on the day, register now and Igloo will send you a copy of the webinar recording.

How to succeed with a workplace chatbot

Webinar with Sam Marshall of ClearBox, and Gillian McCann, Head of Workgrid

8th May — 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CET — for one hour

The benefits of chatbots in the workplace and how to gear up for a successful bot launch.

Chatbots are getting quicker to deploy and train. When available within existing channels, it becomes easier for employees to request services and seek information, especially on mobile devices.

But poorly-deployed chatbots can frustrate more than they assist. It’s easy to do a contained pilot, but a scalable service takes planning. How do you ensure that people know the topics that the chatbot can cope with? How do you ensure that content is maintained, and the responses improve?

Join CMSWire, Sam Marshall of ClearBox Consulting, and Gillian McCann, Head of AI and Cloud Engineering at Workgrid, for a live, hour-long webinar on how chatbots have evolved to be a robust technology, how to avoid early-adopter pitfalls and how to use them for best effect.

This webinar will cover:

  • Where chatbots add most value for employees
  • How to plan and deploy your chatbot
  • How a chatbot fits within a wider digital workplace strategy
  • The implications for HR, IC and IT.
