Opening Keynote - David Pitre: Change Communication Made Easy
After several weeks, a planning team emerges from a closed-door room to announce, “We’re done. And we’re ready to talk about the change. Hit the send button!” Sound familiar?
While we know communication can make a difference, the challenge is BIG: managers resist, communication starts too early (or too late), transparency is lacking and leaders move on before the change is complete.
David Pitre will discuss Davis & Company’s core change communication philosophy: create an immersive experience that engages employees. In other words, don’t simply tell employees what’s changing and expect new behaviors; involve them in the process of shaping the change and making it a reality.
In this interactive session, David Pitre will share practical ways to manage change communication and insights about your role in the process. You’ll learn how to:
- Help stakeholders think differently about communication and their roles
- Gather the details you need to make informed decisions about communication tactics and content
- Include high-touch experiences

Cutting & Pasting: Multi-channel Comms as a Means of Increasing ROI with Bloomberg
Your employees aren’t browsing your intranet all day. Sorry. Rather, they’re commuting, sitting at their desk, waiting in line, visiting customers, browsing Instagram. They’re on the move and engaging with all kinds of media. With just a little bit of ingenuity and forethought, you can ensure most employees see your message when they want and where they are.

Let’s get personal! Building personas to create communications that resonate and inspire
No matter how hard we try, communications can’t be everything to everyone. Inside every organization, there are groups of employees who process and react to communications differently. But how often do you find yourself developing messages for all employees? If you’re spending a lot of time on all-employee communications, they can end up watered down and uninspired. There’s a better way—we promise.
In this interactive session, Ann Melinger, CEO of Employee Experience agency Brilliant Ink, will show you how to build employee personas so that your communications have the greatest impact. Because by not speaking to a particular someone, we risk not connecting with anyone.
