An employee communications
& culture conference by Workshop

  • SEPTEMBER 17, 2024

Why should you attend?

At Bright Side, you won't sit through presentation after presentation! Instead, it'll be an easy-going event filled with delightful experiences, actionable advice, inspirational speeches, and interactive roundtables.

We also believe that the best events are about the people in the room. That's why Bright Side will bring together communications, employee experience, HR, and marketing professionals alike to connect and share ideas, strategies, and tactics.

We will dive into top-tier topics like:

  • Enhancing internal communications strategies
  • Cultivating a positive and inclusive workplace culture
  • Navigating change and uncertainty with resilience
  • Building meaningful connections across teams and departments
  • Empowering employee growth and development
  • Creating impactful employee experiences that drive engagement


Bright Side is located in the Accelerator — it's a flexible space with high ceilings, exposed beams, and vast natural light.

2112 N. 30th Street Omaha, NE 68131
