  • Banks, Businesses and Brexit: Issues of trust, priorities and challenges
    Banks, Businesses and Brexit: Issues of trust, priorities and challenges Roger Mullin & Michelle Thomson Live 60 mins
    The aim of this webinar is to identify key issues of trust and priorities for banking professionals in the context of Brexit and wider cultural challenges.

    It is primarily based on recent research conducted by Roger & Michelle into Brexit & Business where 236 business leaders were interviewed. It also draws upon the wider experience of the speakers in investigations of cultural issues surrounding the finance sector.

    Some aspects of the issues to be discussed will be highly topical and even controversial. For example, we will discuss the extent to which banks are trusted by business customers facing the challenge of Brexit. Participants should be willing therefore to engage in critical reflection regarding business behaviour and ethical responsibility.

    The overall intent of the webinar is not to provide definitive solutions, but to raise different perspectives on very challenging issues for the finance sector.

    Speakers

    Roger Mullin has worked internationally for agencies such as the World Bank, many United Nations agencies and directly with governments. He is an Honorary Professor at Stirling University Management School.

    He has addressed many audiences including a United Nations conference in Geneva. He is a former Member of Parliament, where he was a treasury spokesman and leader of a number of parliamentary campaigns relating to ethics and culture in the finance sector.

    Michelle Thomson is also a former Member of Parliament where she was a member of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee, in which capacity she led the interrogation of Sir Philip Green following the collapse of BHS. After leaving parliament she was appointed Ambassador for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Fair Business Banking. She is one of only a few western politicians to have spoken to an audience of politicians and business leaders at The Great Hall of the People at Tiananmen Square, Beijing.

    Roger & Michelle are founding directors of Momentous Change.

  • Get To Know A CMO
    Get To Know A CMO Frank Grillo, CMO, Harte Hanks ; Liz Miller, SVP Marketing, CMO Council May 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Imagine, for a moment, walking into a store where you have only made a purchase one time before. The salesperson runs up to you and greets you by name, and before you can get a word in edge-wise, he offers you five other products that are almost identical to the one you purchased before. Then, without warning, he invites you to talk with five other customers who not only look eerily similar to you, but are also all wearing the same item you purchased. Then, as you begin to hasten your exit—because at this point, you are fairly certain that the salesperson is a stalker—he begins to shout down the corridor after you, begging you to come back and offering you coupons and discounts as your brisk walk turns into an all-out sprint away from the insanity.

    It is so easy to imagine this scenario in real life, but it is far more difficult to admit that this is the very experience that many of us have inadvertently created for our customers across the omnichannel landscape. So it begs the question: When did we forget how to build real relationships with real, live human beings?

    In this latest installment of the CMO Council’s thought leadership series, “Get to Know a CMO,” Liz Miller will have a one-on-one session with Frank Grillo, Chief Marketing Officer at Harte Hanks, seasoned veteran of the advertising, marketing and telecommunications industries, and a passionate advocate for bringing the human back to marketing.

    Join the CMO Council as we hear Frank’s position on what customer centricity truly is (and what it isn’t), how marketing can be made human again, and where we lost our relationship skills somewhere along the way. Liz will also be asking Frank about his own path to becoming a CMO, which has seen stops along the way as the COO of telecommunications companies and a long track record of serving as the chief growth engine and customer experience orchestrator for large, dynamic organizations.

    Hear from Phil Lee, Partner at Fieldfisher, who will discuss the key changes under the GDPR, the challenges facing businesses, and how digital tools like eSignatures can streamline your compliance.

    Join this webinar to understand:

    - The impacts of the GDPR on businesses

    Implementing AI applications based on machine learning is a significant topic for organizations embracing digital transformation. By 2020, 30% of CIOs will include AI in their top five investment priorities according to Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2018: Intelligent Apps and Analytics.

    - An introduction to machine learning use cases and challenges provided by Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton and top data science and big data influencer.
    - How to achieve good data quality based on harmonized semantic metadata presented by Andreas Blumauer, CEO and co-founder of Semantic Web Company and a pioneer in the application of semantic web standards for enterprise data integration.

  • The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management
    The Next Step: Employee-Focused Service Management Roy Atkinson and Marc Stitt May 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Service management principles and practices have been broadening to encompass far more than IT services over the past few years. HDI research shows that more than half of organizations are using the tools and practices of service management in other business units, such as HR, facilities and customer service. The applications of these proven practices—when done properly—have improved service delivery for business units.

    In today’s organizations, agility and velocity have increased the responsibilities of individual employees, who depend on fast, easily-accessible services to get their work done, from anywhere and at any time. This requires a new focus of service management on employees.

    In this webinar, we will discuss:
    * What service management throughout the organization means
    * Why organizations need to focus on employee success as well as business unit success
    * How the delivery of services affects employee productivity and morale
