On February 28, ROI Communication hosted an ROI Forum event at Genentech in South San Francisco. The Bay Area ROI Forum is a community of senior communication professionals from the largest companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Genentech host Jane Herzog gave an overview of Genentech’s strategic approach to employee communications and her colleague, Lise Dumont, shared how they manage their highly read and rated intranet. ROI’s Barbara Fagan-Smith, Sheryl Lewis, Erin Hosilyk, Virginia Stefan and Allison Renda attended the forum, along with a great group of communication professionals. All attendees participated in the best practice sharing, discussing content strategy, creation and governance. Barbara Fagan-Smith gave the first preview of the 2017 ROI Communication Benchmark Report results and recommendations.

We look forward to our next Bay Area Forum in May at Symantec.
