  • Stop Blaming Russia & China for all Cyber Attacks
    Stop Blaming Russia & China for all Cyber Attacks Amar Singh, Joseph Carson Recorded: May 23 2017 59 mins
    Cyber-attacks can originate from anywhere, but there appears to be an unabated trend of pointing the finger on either "sophisticated attackers" or, more blatantly, naming and blaming nation-states like Russia, China and now North Korea (alright, maybe even Iran).

    The truth about attribution (who is the attacker) is often overlooked for something more dramatic, especially in situations where sensitive information or brand reputation is at risk.

    The tactic is simple. Switch the focus from internal bad practices and shift the blame to “sophisticated, nation states and or criminal gangs.” Lazy, but effective.

    Join Amar Singh and Joseph Carson, from Thycotic, as they both discuss the real reason behind why cyber attacks succeed (no - not because of Russia or China)and the steps you can take to make the job of hackers, both sophisticated and otherwise, much harder.

  • Move to faster group reporting
    Move to faster group reporting Unit4 Partner Millennium Consulting Recorded: Apr 26 2017 24 mins
    As organisations expand through growth or acquisition, it can be increasingly time consuming to keep using MS Excel for consolidated group reporting.

    This session will provide an overview of how organisations have managed to free up time within the group finance function for more value-added activities, by switching from spreadsheets to using a specialist application designed for the task.

  • Unbeatable best practices in global subscriptions
    Unbeatable best practices in global subscriptions Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Apr 20 2017 62 mins
    Some things you can count on — and recurring revenue from subscriptions is one of them.

    To make it work, you need to set an effective pricing strategy, design an attractive subscription — and then make the payment process utterly seamless. The payment technology exists, but the real magic is in your overall subscription strategy for the global marketplace.

    In the U.S., consumers overwhelmingly pay online with credit cards, but outside the U.S. it's another story, with payment methods like bank transfers preferred in the Netherlands and cash vouchers in Latin America. On top of that, what considerations need to be made to set a comfortable pricing strategy?

    To find out how industry leaders in subscription pricing marry strategy and tech seamlessly to make the global leap, join our interactive VB Live event!

    By registering for this webinar, you'll:

    * Provide subscribers with the right payment options at the right time
    * Get users to pick the subscription option you WANT them to
    * Increase payment conversion with an effective pricing strategy
    * Create and execute a payments strategy that enables you to reliably scale globally

  • The Account Journey: Stage Automation and Lifecycle Design
    The Account Journey: Stage Automation and Lifecycle Design Grant Grigorian, Co-Founder and CEO of Path to Scale Jun 2 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In this webinar we'll explore how to design and begin to measure the Account Journey by mapping out the end-to-end marketing and sales processes.

    Specifically, we'll introduce the idea of an "Account Stage" and map out a few variations of an Account Lifecycle Model - ie how do we take a prospect from "Target Account" to "Customer"?

    Once we've established an account lifecycle model driven by the Account Stage, we'll fully automate it by using information about the contacts and sales deals in the account. The Account Stage will serve as the high-level indicator of where the account is in the sales cycle, making it easier to evaluate the health of our sales pipeline overall.

    Mapping out the Account LIfecycle will also improve marketing and sales alignment for Account Based Marketing orchestration and performance measurement.

    We'll conclude the webinar by showing examples of how Account Based Marketing Attribution can be used to analyze the performance of the account lifecycle.

    Note to Audience:
    This webinar is NOT a product demo or a pitch. Instead, our webinars offer an in-depth exploration of challenging topics that our customers and partners are working through - and that we hope to shed some light on.

    Please attend the webinar to learn more about this topic and bring your own questions/comments to make the session more interactive - and more valuable to everyone.

    How to get your AI and Bot company funded Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Jun 15 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In 2016, when major platforms like Facebook gave developers the keys to the artificial intelligence kingdom, and advances in AI technology and natural language processing started breaking the user interface mold, analysts predicted that chatbots were going to change the game.

    Bots flooded the market—and then they vanished. They weren't backed with solid business models, addressing real pain points or solving problems, because marketers weren't asking the right questions, customers weren't engaging, and chatbots were too often gimmicks instead of disruptors.

    How do you become the next unicorn in the bots and artificial intelligence space? How do you catch the eye and win the heart of that top VC firm? Join our latest interactive VB Live event to find out!

    In this live virtual executive roundtable, you'll:

    To DC or not DC? Should you implement a Defined Contribution (DC) pension scheme Paul Hamilton – Partner and Head of Higher Education and Martin Willis – Associate, Workplace Health and Wealth Jul 11 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    With Defined Benefit (DB) schemes in the Higher Education sector seeing a steady increase in costs, many institutions are now considering whether to move a proportion of their staff onto a DC scheme. DC schemes can introduce a lot of freedom and flexibility for staff members which can be very valuable, however setting up a DC scheme can also be a complicated exercise and may initially create concerns for those staff members being moved. Therefore the key to a successful DC launch is getting the right provider, the right level of benefits and ensuring that you are engaging with staff in a way that helps them to see the potential. During this 45 minute webinar we hope to give you an understanding of the key issues when thinking about setting up a DC scheme.

    To follow or nofollow? Do these links really matter? Nick Gomez & James Barber (Co-Head of SEO & Senior Account Manager) Nov 21 2017 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
