Interact with fellow professionals

Bowen Craggs & Co has coordinated an exclusive network for online corporate communications professionals since 2003. Although most group members work in Fortune 500 corporations, we welcome senior managers from public sector and non-governmental organisations with responsibility for large web presences.

The focal point of the group’s activity is a series of meetings that run throughout the year hosted by members. More than 40 meetings have been held since 2003. While the meetings are based round topical issues, they invariably develop into lively discussions that reveal practical insights into current challenges and future opportunities for online communications.

In coming together through the network to explore ideas and issues, online communications professionals from very different organisations discover they are facing the same challenges and, crucially, can share ways to tackle them.

Membership benefits

Member-hosted member-only events

The opportunity to network exclusively with fellow professionals in an informal environment is as big a draw as the topics on the agenda.

Meetings are always hosted by a network member and are held at locations around the world. Group members can attend as many meetings as they wish or keep up to speed through access to all speaker presentations and the anonymised minutes.

Unique market research

Bowen Craggs facilitates requests from group members for cost-free market research among the network community. Need to know how others deal with specific issues? Ask the group and get real answers fast.

Secure online member networking tool

A private group on LinkedIn, the professional networking website, runs in parallel with the network. Access is strictly limited to members of the Web Effectiveness Network (no agencies or consultants are allowed).

Reduced rate annual conference pass

The annual Web Effectiveness Conference is held over two days in June. Network members are offered delegate passes at 20 per cent discount.

Membership criteria

There is no cost to join but membership is subject to acceptance. Applicants must be senior industry professionals working for large corporate or public sector/ non-governmental organisations.
