Webinar: Rethinking the IC platform: from mass awareness tool to engaging leaders and influencers

Tuesday, November 28

One of the greatest potential opportunities for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of business communication is a variation of the “80/20 rule” – leveraging relatively few key employees to drive the major organizational conversations, rather than pursuing one-size-fits-all approaches.

Indeed, research shows that as few as three percent of employees actually drive more than 90% of an organization’s conversations. But what’s involved in tapping into this informal network and harnessing it to help the organization communicate and perform more effectively?

Join Mike Klein, Principal at Changing the Terms and Chris Izquierdo, CEO at DevFacto and creator of Sparrow, as they discuss how to identify, connect and mobilize influencers to affect organizational change.
