The Yak is back!

A lot of excitement was generated last week when we announced the date of the big yak. Did you catch the twitter excitement? Well, the yak is back and we will be running our popular internal comms unconference on Saturday 28 June in London.

Did you miss last year?

If all this yak talk is confusing you don’t fret as you can review the big yak from 2013, which was on 22 June hosted at the fantastic eBay offices in Richmond. Last year, our unconference hosted close to 150 internal comms and intranet specialists and everyone was able to attend six sessions throughout the day on topics such as video, gamificiation, winning more budget, overcoming cultural differences and being sneakily social for leaders.
