IBF Live is a unique online intranet show from IBF. Going out live on the first Tuesday of every month, it’s unmissable for anyone who works with intranets, portals and information workplaces. 

You’ll see the pictures on your screen and hear the audio through speakers or a headset. The programme is interactive and involves the audience as much as possible. During the programme we encourage you to ask questions and participate in polls and competitions using the Q&A panel on your Webex console. You can also come onto the programme and ask questions in person.

Aesthetic beauty and functional beauty... can we have both? Yes! Join us July 5 for a beautiful edition of IBF Live, featuring the Government of British Columbia intranet, the grand prize winner of this year’s My Beautiful Intranet competition. Courtney Campbell, Web Manager, BC Government, will join us to prove that beauty can be much more than skin deep, with strong functional elements built in that complement its stunning use of colour and photography. The intranet was one of 36 entries submitted to the IBF 24 competition website. These were voted on by 1,396 site visitors to produce 10 finalists, from which the IBF judges picked the winning entry.

Next, we’ll be joined by Felicity McNish, Global Knowledge Manager at Woods Bagot (Architecture & Design). Felicity submitted her intranet to the My Beautiful Intranet competition, but alas, her screenshot was held up by an unruly email server. So she has graciously agreed to join us on IBF Live to give us a live tour. And Felicity gets the grand prize for being the most accommodating... she’s calling in from Adelaide, Australia, where it will be 12:30am her time.

Finally, Kurt Krejny, Director of SEM Best Practices at Fathom Online Marketing will be joining us for a live tour of his company’s intranet. Here is yet another example of where aesthetic beauty and functional beauty intersect. For example, the site theme is changed quarterly for a visual representation of company objectives.  They have an entire section of their intranet for new hires where new employees can learn about core values and collaborate with seasoned employees to make their transition a smooth one. Kurt combines a background in visual communications with expertise in online marketing and SEO to deliver an intranet that stands in a class of its own.

Paul Miller
, CEO of IBF, will host the show, along with Neil Morgan, from the World Wildlife Fund, who recently joined us during IBF 24 to give a fascinating tour of the new WWF portal layer for their intranet, just days after the internal launch.
