Empowering Enterprise Change and Engagement Through Co-Creation

Join us on Tuesday, April 14 for our next Second Tuesday Luncheon with Preston Lewis, CEO of Intactic: “Empowering Enterprise Change & Engagement Through Co-Creation.”  One of the most powerful catalysts to facilitate change is involving employees in the generation of ideas that address an organization’s most pressing challenges. By opening up these important conversations, individuals feel a part of—rather than on the sidelines of—the true game of business.

Preston Lewis will share methods for how to drive co-creation efforts within your company to facilitate change initiatives and engage employees at all levels. Participants will be led through a series of pointed inquiries, facilitating breakthrough thinking and leading to significant improvements in both employee engagement and leadership support.

Participants will learn:

  • How to position communications as a catalyst for co-creation
  • How to build a holistic engagement strategy, supported by multi-disciplinary communications
  • How to use emerging crowd-sourcing technologies to drive engagement efforts
