Keynote Speakers for Intranets 2012 in Sydney – May 2012

Step Two announced the three keynote speakers for the Intranets 2012 conference in May 2012:

William Amurgis (USA) is the director of internal communications at American Electric Power (AEP), a large electric utility serving 5.3 million customers in the United States. His group manages the corporate intranet, AEP Now, which received an Intranet Innovation Award in 2009 and a Nielsen Norman Group award in 2007.

Martin White (UK) is the author of the Intranet Management Handbook and three other books. Over the last twelve years most of his work has been developing long-term intranet and information strategies for companies in the UK, Europe and North America.

James Robertson (Australia) is the author of Designing intranets: creating sites that work, the first textbook for intranet teams, along with What every intranet team should know. James is a passionate speaker who presents a clear vision of the future of intranets.

I know Martin and James well, and have heard both speak numerous times. I have never heard William, but from the above description it sounds like he will have a good story to tell.

I attended and keynoted at Intranets2011 in May of this year. It was a very well conference, and it comes with my high recommendation for intranet teams down under in 2012.
