12:00 Introduction - The world of premium employee experiences and modern collaboration

12:10 Building your intranet on Office 365: from SharePoint Modern Experience to Intranets-in-a-Box  
Considering Office 365 as the basis for your intranet and modern workplace? We will take you on a practical journey through your options, discussing the challenges and opportunities for each of them. Microsoft has invested a lot recently in improving SharePoint’s intranet functionality and user experience. We’ll highlight what’s available out-of-the-box and how you can add that extra touch by deploying an intranet-in-a-box solution on top of Office 365, such as Valo. Intranets-in-a-box have proven to be a successful choice for companies that give priority to faster implementation without disregarding the workplace experience and higher user adoption.

13:00 Kicking off your next generation intranet project: Practical guidelines to ensure success
OK, you’re convinced that your organization needs a new modern intranet, but how to get started? Intranet and digital workplace expert Guy Van Leemput shares his experience and best practices. You will get an answer to strategic as well as practical questions such as: How do I link intranet objectives to the overall business objectives of the organization? How do I identify and prioritize end user needs? Who owns the project and what type of project governance works best? How do I select the right product and implementation partner?

13:30 Improving user adoption: Using the intranet as the Office 365 sugarcoat
The combination of an Office 365 intranet – as internal communication platform – and Office 365 Teams – as collaboration platform – offers the perfect basis for a Modern Digital Workplace. But a Digital Workplace also involves adopting new ways of working, a transformation, and a change in behavior. And that’s where change management and user adoption strategies play a crucial role.
