September 21, 2011 Transcript of #CommsChat with Mark K Smith and Dale Parmenter, 19 September

For Monday’s #CommsChat, we were joined by Mark K Smith, CEO of Ipadio, and Dale Parmenter, managing director at DRP Group, for a session that looked at how technology is aiding the development of internal communications.

It was a lively session with a lot of interesting viewpoints put forward, and we’ve pulled out some of the most interesting tweets below. We were also treated to the sight of several #CommsChat participants uploading videos using an Ipadio demo, which you can watch at http://vodpod.ipadio.com/vodpods/demo/fa.html#. Perhaps video is the next dimension we’ll be bringing to our regular chats!

#CommsChat I think for me it’s the challenge of reaching the ‘hard to reach’ with a consistent timely message

At Mynewsdesk we use a closed Facebook group sometimes, but there are varying views on how we should use it! #commschat

Using smartphones for evaluation is a great tool. Can access your audience in a more enagging manner #CommsChat

@CommsChat internal engagement isn’t about tech, it’s about people – if tech helps then great. People first, tech second. #CommsChat

@CommsChat Need to identify & help technophobes to get the most from new tech – still use classic channels while culture changes

@mynewsdesk_uk well, I’d always say over-do it; it’s impossible create too many ways for people to have conversations. #commschat

#CommsChat @PaulCTayla agree tech is for facilitation. Can have shiniest gadgets in the world but if they’re not right for culture = fail

@ipadio With video/livestreams & interactive back channel, you can have a vast reach and give others the tools for face to face? #commschat
