  • GDPR : A Threat or An Opportunity?
    GDPR : A Threat or An Opportunity? Pradeep Prasad Recorded: Apr 19 2018 61 mins
    The world has moved in the last 100 years from the first flight into the sky to flights to Mars; there is complete digital control over our lives. Control is by the person or entity who has retrievable custody of our data which can be misused for gains and / or to harm us. What was most prevalent form of societal intimacy during our childhood in 1960s and 1970s, that everything was known about everyone in a neighbourhood; we have come a long way. We are at a stage where we ask - why do you need to know about me? If there is a need with an agreed upon purpose, only sufficient data is provided which satisfies the need with a caveat that the data would not be used for any other purpose.

    European Union (EU) has done a commendable job 2 decades back — to protect its citizens from prying eyes, whether harmful or not — through replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive. In parallel, government of India also took commendable steps in this direction through InfoTech Act 2000, which was amended in 2008 with additional safeguards. Though India InfoTech Act is a general purpose all-compassing act, it has sections to protect data privacy strengthened further in 2011. However, both EU GDPR and India InfoTech Act can leverage each other for mutual benefits.

Taking a page from these “Micro-Learning” techniques, Kepner-Tregoe has designed a training solution that keeps crucial operators on-the-job while they learn.

  • Start Ups - Diverse By Design
    Start Ups - Diverse By Design Juliet Eccleston, Co-founder and CEO at AnyGood? Recorded: Apr 6 2018 28 mins
    When you’re developing and refining a proposition, it can be easy to focus simply on what most people need and and how you can provide it as quickly and cost efficiently as possible. The 80/20 rule right?

    Those involved in start ups are in the unique position of being able to re-write the rule book. They can be unconstrained within their design process by traditional corporate boundaries and move beyond something that works for most, to something that is both inclusive and extraordinary.

    In this live webinar, I’ll share some of the key techniques we used to develop AnyGood? as a proposition that was “Diverse By Design”. This not only resulted in us having a far more ethical proposition, but one that was more desirable too.

    If you’re in an early stage start up, or are in a larger organisation and have a proposition that’s being developed and refined, tune in and I’ll share my learnings.
  • How blockchain can help IoT deliver ROI
    How blockchain can help IoT deliver ROI Jonathan Johnson, Board Member, Overstock.com Recorded: Apr 5 2018 61 mins

  • How to Navigate Post-Acquisition Success with Recurring Revenue Businesses
    How to Navigate Post-Acquisition Success with Recurring Revenue Businesses Jeff Wissink, Managing Director and Stephen Terry, Director of Subscription Services, Navint Partners Recorded: Apr 3 2018 34 mins
    Growth through acquisition is a common strategy for recurring revenue businesses, providing rapid revenue gains, increased customer base, and cost-side synergies. Capturing those synergies requires thoughtful post-acquisition integration work; bringing multiple companies into a single way of operating across a larger pool of customers.

    In many cases, each business has independently built a frictionless Continuous CustomerTM experience around their product offerings, fine-tuning their operations for the singular purpose of attracting, keeping, and growing that certain customer base for that particular offering. After the acquisition is made, attention quickly turns to how these independent entities can be quickly combined to operate efficiently and realize expected benefits.

    This session will cover client examples of overcoming this challenge and map out the five steps to integrate recurring revenue business acquisitions to maximize value.
