Silicon Reef Hosts First Employee Engagement Panel Event – Fathom

By Amanda Harvey, Marketing Manager

Silicon Reef Hosts First Employee Engagement Panel Event – Fathom
On 19th June, Silicon Reef launched the first in our panel event series focusing on driving employee engagement through innovation. We were delighted to welcome over forty leading HR and Internal communication specialists from leading businesses including Sky, KPMG, Money Supermarket and Unilever. The breakfast event took place at the prestigious – The Club at The Ivy in London. 

As an agency, we have a wealth of expertise specialising in promoting employee engagement through Microsoft O365. Earlier this year we published a downloadable guide on this subject – available here Creating O365 Employee Engagement. After an overwhelming response to the guide, we realised the subject needed to be explored further and curated our first Fathom event on this topic.  

Over breakfast, our guests heard from four panellists who shared their unique experiences and expertise with the room. 

Here is a brief overview of our speakers and topics:  

Alex Graves, Founder & Director, Silicon Reef
Alex discussed technical innovation within the workplace and provided a glimpse into the future modern workplace. He also explained how the Microsoft & SharePoint toolkit is proven to increase engagement and create a better work environment. 

Tom Brookes, Platform Strategist, Unilever
Tom discussed how a company’s set up and use of digital tools, like Yammer, in the workplace can enhance culture and employee engagement. He also discussed how important vendor partners are in helping shape the workplace.  

Tiziana Giordano, Marketing Manager, Seenit
Through Seenit’s video platform, employees become the storytellers and engage in a relevant and modern way. We saw first-hand how video is becoming the focus of large companies in order to get the most engagement from their teams. 

Sam Marshall, Owner, ClearBox Consultancy
With years of experience offering clients strategic guidance on their employee engagement approach. Sam explored what companies need to focus on now and what to plan for over the next three years. 

Over the coming weeks we will be releasing videos of the talks in full.

Thanks to our speakers and guests for supporting Fathom, we are currently planning our next event which will take place in Autumn 2019, keep an eye on our events page for more information. 

If any of the topics discussed at Fathom resonate with you and your business or if you have a strategic Employee Engagement challenge, drop us a line.
