Business Wire

PHOENIX -- January 22, 2013

Second City Communications and Corpedia are pleased to announce the launch of
RealBiz Shorts Energy, a library of 12 short, funny videos specific to the
regulatory issues facing the utility, gas and pipeline industries. This is the
latest addition to the RealBiz Shorts ethics and compliance library, which now
includes 100 video shorts and counting, being viewed by over 2 million people
in over 200 mostly Fortune 1000 clients.

The RealBiz Shorts library was built in collaboration with ethics and
compliance thought-leaders, from several blue chip energy companies, as a way
to help engage employees around these important issues in a positive way. The
videos support traditional training and communications by drawing attention to
key resources and making them more engaging and accessible. After all, you
can’t bore people into changing behavior.

To preview a video, and to learn more, register for the free webinar, New
Videos, Best Practices for Implementation, and User Experiences, occurring
Thursday, January 24, 2013, 1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EST. To request a demo of
the full library, visit realbizshorts.com/energy.

“We wanted the training to be both informative and entertaining,” said Tom
Hall, Director of Compliance & Regulatory Policy Initiatives with Spectra
Energy Transmission. “With RealBiz Shorts, we successfully accomplished this
by incorporating various videos into our in-house (custom) developed content,
as well as utilizing games and prizes to reinforce the various compliance
messages. As a result, Spectra’s Culture of Compliance took a significant leap
forward.”

RealBiz Shorts builds on The Second City’s 50-plus years of expertise in
developing engaging, insightful content that connects with people, makes them
laugh and makes them think. The video shorts help compliance professionals
change behavior by putting important messages in front of employees,
throughout the year, in a way that engages them and builds buzz.

“This is a major innovation for the energy industry – the idea of using short
and funny content to get attention and drive stronger results. RealBiz Shorts
combines comedy, social learning, and the latest thought-leadership in
compliance and ethics training to help improve the culture of compliance for
energy companies in a positive way,” said Steve Johnston, president of Second
City Communications. “As with all RealBiz Shorts, this new content is
developed in collaboration with leaders in the energy sector – real
suggestions from real companies to co-create and crowd source relevant
scenarios that connect with employees on the front lines,” added Johnston.
