  • Before we get to Philips online – share with you some findings from recent research among leading US communications directors done by one of my senior advisers (Dave Wickenden). Was presented to an exclusive group of universities and companies recently. 81% of interviewees signalled online communication as (very) significant. Same goes for you, otherwise you would not be here today.Here you see how they classified the key issues they are confronting on the organizational and executional side. Surely you recognize challenges
  • As in today’s environment, trust is an issue at stake, and trust is NOT built through advertising but through dialogue and engagement – which is what we corporate communicators do as a profession….Clearly we have a big responsibility in structuring our company’s outreach online
  • Even more ifyou look at the impact of social media engagement on the financial performance of companies
  • McKinsey did a study into benefits of being online for companies dealing with employees, partners/suppliers and with customers.
  • Now over to Philips – how we are adapting our communications in the new networked worldIt is all about 5 C’s – Channel, Consistency, continuity, creativity and commitment
  • Online is a channel – ever growing in importance but still a channel. Think Audience first and foremost – where are they and what would they be interested to learn about your company?
  • For example – at Philips we have recently revamped our news room online – where we meet the media and engage with them in ongoing dialogue on our company. We have extended the dialogue and interaction possibilities and – true to our brand promised – designed the news room around our target audience, the journalists. We have also tied in a twitter feed and Flickr channel to make sure that the journalist has multiple ways of contacting the communications team as well as access quickly to the materials they might need.
  • We are continuously looking at where we can find our audiences online, using existing social media and cooperate with them. In 2010, Philips established two LinkedIn discussion groups – Innovations in Health & Innovations in Light – to facilitate thought leadership and collaboration for the progression of global healthcare and lighting. The Innovations in Health LinkedIn group is one of the nominations for a Sabre award tonight... This thought-leadership campaign enabled Philips to break into the business-to-business social networking space and establish meaningful and authentic relationships with key audiences.  These groups consisted of two parent groups -Innovations in Health and Innovations in Light - and four healthcare subgroups specifically focused on radiology, oncology, cardiology and women’s health to ensure the diverse target audience could easily find discussions and other members relevant to them. Today, more than 69,300+ members collectively, medical professionals and lighting enthusiasts use the groups to discuss, share and foster peer-to-peer innovation. Since launch, group members have contributed to more than 9,889 discussions, 16,089 comments and 781,843 total page views. Topics vary from advancements in technology to in-field insight and opinion on research.
  • Looking at this picture it is clear how important consistency in online outreach is. Online knows no borders and is multi-faceted. Consistency includes aligning traditional and “new” channels – mostly not so new anymore…
  • We started some time ago with bringing alignment to our online presence across all sectors. Big challenge with 3 sectors moving into OnePhilips. Everybody moving online, starting microsites, blogs, Twitter feeds, etc. At one point there were upwards of 130 Facebook pages, 60 twitter feeds and 40 YouTube channels. While it is easy to start a social media presence, it is harder to keep them going with relevant content for the longer term. We are now looking to share resources, share content and connect the user to the property that is going to best work for them.
  • After the recognitionthat we need to alignour programs notonlyfrom a sector level butalso at country/local level sothat we are relevant across borders. This is ourOnePhilips project which we are looking to alignourpresenceincluding:The themesaroundwhich we alignThe propertiesthatwillbemaintainedHow we willmeasureeffectivenessHow we will listen How we will manage these propertiesfor the long term As part of thisstrategy we willbecreatinganinternal “Help desk” foreveryonewithin Philips whowouldlike to engageanaudience online, butneeds help on the guidelineswhy, when, what, how. Alreadycreatedsocial media guidelines to safeguard brand and reputationbutallowforenthousiastic employee engagement online.
  • Another example where continuity is crucial online is the area of stakeholder engagement. Stakeholder engagement knows many forms, but a great tool to facilitate regular exchanges with your key stakeholders is an online database. Obviously stakeholders have to opt in, but when in – there are great ways to communicate snippets of interesting information to them, invite their views, as an add on to one on one meetings and public events. Such a database is only relevant when kept up to date and continuously engaging. One example where we do this is with the GetInsideHealth Newsletter – we send out a monthly dynamic newsletter, where our audience (senior business influencers and decision makers in the healthcare profession) receive a tailored email, dependent on the preferences they have selected when signing up to GIH. There are five templates which can include anything from 1 – 5 categories, dependent on their interests (Health and well-being, Radiology, Oncology, Cardiology and OBGYN).
  • The Networkedworldalso presents greatopportunitiesforrevampingourinternalcommunications. Instead of top down messaging – whynotenable employees to communicateacross the organization in a waythat is anyway part of theirdailylife (social media, blogging, etc.)
  • Summarizing – it is the people, our audiences taking control over when and how they would like to engage with you. Corporate Communications has a lifetime of experience of dialogue and engagement. We at Philips are taking the new networked world as a given and jump at the opportunities. We are sure that this continuously enlarging field of operation will help us achieve our growth targets and help us build our reputation of a leading company constantly improving people’s lives, everywhere in the world.

  • How does that fit with our map.
    • Using engagement, you get a more holistic appreciation of your customers' actions, recognizing that value comes not just from transactions but also from actions people take to influence others.
    • Once engagement takes hold of marketing, marketing messages will become conversations, and dollars will shift from media buying to customer understanding.
  • Here’s how. Qualitative.
    Meaningful 1:1 relationships
    Quality of conversations
    Targeted reach to important niche audiences/advocates
