Numerous Advantages for Your Business
Advatera is the initiator of an independent community of practice on internal and external digital communication and leadership.
In addition to ample opportunities for active networking, Advatera provides a platform for the cross-sector exchange of know-how and experiences. Thanks to the sharing of knowledge within the network, you’ll gain a numerous practice-oriented ideas for your own projects. In bringing together practitioners, Advatera aggregates their digital expertise and creates a highly beneficial synergy effect.
Cross-Sector Sharing of Knowledge and Experiences
- Intranet & collaboration
- Digital workplaces & internal communication
- Digital marketing
- Online communication (PR & HR)
- Online crisis communication
- Social media
As a participant in an Advatera expert group, you’ll get to benefit from the know-how of others. Concepts developed jointly by the group can later serve as guidelines for similar projects in your own company. You’ll meet multiple times per year, learn from the experiences and ideas of other members and get a chance to share your own knowledge.
Our selection of regional and supraregional groups allows you to plan your participation according to your needs: regional groups enable you to get involved without expensive travel costs, while supraregional groups offer the chance to gain an international perspective.
Independent Exchange of Know-How – Free from Advertising Interests
Our Advatera expert groups are governed by a principle of strict independence. By prohibiting the participation of software or consulting firm representatives, we guarantee an open, confidential and completely advertising-free environment. It is important to us that you participate regularly, thus enhancing your understanding of the topics at hand over the span of several meetings. Naturally, all Advatera meetings are professionally organised and moderated. We draw on the experiences of previous meetings to plan the organisation and content of upcoming expert groups.
By interacting and sharing knowledge in our Advatera Expert Groups, you gain practical experiences and knowledge that can be transferred back to your own organisation. This brings about an easily perceivable synergy and resource-saving effect.
Benefits of Participating in the Network – At a Glance:
- You participate in the independent exchange of knowledge with other experts, who share their real-life project experiences with the work group.
- You get to know colleagues with similar job profiles from other organisations and industries.
- You learn from both the “best practices” and the mistakes of other companies.
- You obtain project ideas whose practicability and efficiency has been proven in practice – not just considered as part of case studies or business simulation games.
- By learning from the experiences of other participants in the group, you can take advantage of informal benchmarking: you are better able to understand where your own projects stand and can obtain a solid decision-making basis for the upcoming stages of your current project. If necessary, the confidential group environment also allows for discussion of budgets and resources.
- You get to know about current trends and new issues in your field of work. The group discussion also helps you to evaluate them.
- Regular interaction with the group enables you to follow projects over a longer timeframe. Instead of a momentary snapshot – like the one you might get from a seminar of conference presentation – you get an overallpicture and a truly nuanced insight into how projects are run at other companies. This insight covers the companies’ successes, capabilities and limits.
