  • The CIO’s Top 10 Strategic Security Metrics
    The CIO’s Top 10 Strategic Security Metrics Pete Lindstrom Recorded: Jul 13 2018 27 mins
    No enterprise can be completely secure, and in the uncertainty that necessarily permeates the landscape, others will find fault. This web conference provides a way for CIOs to use proven scientific and economic principles to enhance their organizations’ security position. Simply put, the most effective security programs reduce the most risk with the least resources; therefore, an organization must find a way to measure the efficacy of its security program to understand how much of the risk it is reducing after it applies security controls. With the appropriate key risk indicator (KRI) data collected, organizations can determine which initiatives are ultimately the most useful in their security program.

  • Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question
    Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question Lori Kleiman, Owner, HR Topics Recorded: Jul 12 2018 32 mins
    Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    ·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
    ·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
    ·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
    ·Development in background and credit check compliance
    ·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter

  • 2018 Holidays Will Be All Against Amazon Again
    2018 Holidays Will Be All Against Amazon Again Greg Girard, Program Director, Worldwide Retail Intelligent Product Merchandising and Marketing Strategy, IDC Retail Insights Recorded: Jul 10 2018 30 mins
    This IDC Retail Insights presentation summarizes our recent research on how shoppers sized up their 2017 holiday shopping experience and the recommendations we developed for customer experience (CX) strategies for the 2018 holiday shopping season. Here's the challenge: beyond its reach into 10's of millions of households, catalog, and CX technologies Amazon's hold on shoppers' wallets and shopping carts runs deep, as a leader in satisfying gift givers' emotional needs — engendering joy in finding the right gift and confidence in being treated fairly and squarely.

    This research points to a number of strategies for outflanking shoppers' emotional connection to Amazon. Top performers engendering joy employ quite different business strategies to reach shoppers in these emotional dimensions. Amazon offers massive breadth and depth, TJX and Ross Stores win with the treasure hunt for deals, Nordstrom succeeds with service and curated assortments, and Best Buy offers well-curated assortments and well-trained associates.
  • Why Your Sales Manager Is Your Biggest Liability
    Why Your Sales Manager Is Your Biggest Liability Marcus Cauchi, ISM Fellow Recorded: Jul 10 2018 53 mins
    We all think we know the cost of a wrong hire in sales. Many of us have paid the heavy price, but we often do we overlook the person whose job it is to hire the best and get the best out of them, the Sales Manager. If you think hiring the wrong salesperson is expensive, you can multiply that cost by 5-10x when you hire the wrong sales manager.

    * Does your manager try to manage the numbers?
    * Is your manager focused on being a supervisor?
    * Do they treat recruitment as a chore and an interruption to their real job?
    * Are they taking too long or failing to manage turnover?
    * Are they managing from an ivory tower?
    * Do they confused training with coaching and why does this matter?
    * Do they rescue & accidentally create a culture of upward delegation & learned helplessness?
    * Do they believe the excuses they hear?
    * Are they more concerned with being liked than being effective?
    * Are they inconsistent or lack clarity?
    * Do they do what was done to them?
    * Are they blaming their salespeople instead of taking responsibility for fixing the problems you need them to fix?
    * Are they focused on the helping the wrong people?
    * Are they worried about playing favourites?

    If you answered “yes’ to any of these questions YOU have a problem.

    A webinar for owners, CEOs and sales managers who are brave enough to look into the abyss. Not for softies!

  • Role modelling vulnerability
    Role modelling vulnerability Kate Rees, Individual and Team Coaching, Kate Rees Coaching Limited Recorded: Jul 4 2018 40 mins
    As a coach I absolutely love what I do, as I help individuals and teams to break down their barriers and unlock amazing things that they didn't think were possible for them to achieve.

    I believe by embracing vulnerability we can be stronger, more resilient people and leaders by building more powerful connections and empathy with others. Also by telling our own raw, real, personal stories we can inspire people as a role model where they maybe haven't found inspiration before.

    I will share my own experiences of bringing vulnerability into work and why I believe it is so important.

    You will learn:
    - How you can use vulnerability to help create high performing teams
    - How you can use your vulnerability to be a better leader
    - Why being vulnerable can help you be more resilient

  • Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences
    Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences IBC365 | Limelight Networks | Rede Telecine | DAZN | OTT Content Consulting Recorded: Jun 28 2018 71 mins
    Great content alone is not enough to sustain a successful on-demand internet-delivered OTT service.

    Whether it's broadcaster catch-up, special-interest content or producers like HBO and Disney going direct, the pressure is on for platforms trying to compete with the big beasts Netflix and Amazon. With the announcement of Salto as a joint venture of broadcasters in France, and UK channels investing in updating Freeview Play, OTT is centre-stage once again.

    Audiences have huge expectations of user experience, video image and quality-of-service - regardless of the network or device they are using. Delivering and managing a consistently-high quality of experience is crucial for media companies wanting to deliver a popular, engaging and profitable OTT service - whatever the content and business model.

    Leading OTT operators and their technology providers discuss how they have designed-in quality and user experience all the way through to consumers' devices, showing how this directly drives audience growth.

    They will reveal the risk factors that can destroy audience engagement, including poor streaming performance and data privacy and security fears.

    As OTT becomes inseparable from live broadcast, solutions for streaming time-sensitive, high-value live events and sports are assessed.

    Speakers:
    Guilherme Saraiva, CTO, Rede Telecine
    Steve Miller-Jones, Senior Director of Product Management, Limelight Networks

  • Leading with Executive Presence
    Leading with Executive Presence Yvette Gavin, Leadership and Executive Presence Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Yvette Gavin Consulting Recorded: Jun 27 2018 61 mins
    What does it take to get to the next promotion? Performance, hard work, and sponsors get top talent recognized and promoted. But "leadership potential" isn't enough to move men and women into the executive suite. Leadership roles are given to those who also look and act the part. Research by the Center for Talent Innovation reveals that the top jobs often elude women and professionals of color because they lack "executive presence" (EP), or underestimate its importance. Where presence alone won't get you promoted, its absence will impede your progress.

    In this webinar, you will get the guidance needed to acquire and increase your Executive Presence by:

    Learning the three heartbeats of Executive Presence
    Practicing mindfulness to sustain positive energy and monitor assumptions
    Obtaining proven techniques that will help you command a room
    Creating a professional brand while remaining authentic

  • Onboarding: How to Turn an A-Player into a B-player in Under 4 Weeks
    Onboarding: How to Turn an A-Player into a B-player in Under 4 Weeks Marcus Cauchi, ISM Fellow Jul 17 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    You’ve just hired James Bond on to your sales team and you have high hopes for his performance. Assuming you really did hire James Bond and not Mr Bean in a Tux, what can you do to ensure disappointment?

    Why! Fail to do a proper onboarding process! Delude yourself into thinking you hired an adult, a professional, someone who can be depended on to hit the ground running. “John is a big boy and doesn’t want me crowding him. I’ll let him get on with it.”

    This is called management by abdication and is one of the cardinal sins of sales management.

    Onboarding is the lost element of successful recruitment. The best sales managers have a 120 day onboarding plan for new hires. Why 120 days? Because that is the probation period a new hire is typically putting you (their manager, the job they actually bought, the company and the other people on the team) on in case they believe they have made a bad choice of career move.

    You’ve invested time and money in attracting them, selecting them, offering them, legal & HR costs, managing their notice period, paying them, training them and you risk blowing your winnings because you’re too busy, too stupid or too lazy to finish the job you started!

    Onboarding is not about giving them an Ops & Employee Manual to read, giving them some product training and provisioning them with passwords, a laptop and a phone. Those are the tiniest part of a good onboarding process. Onboarding should set up a new hire for success. It should be structured and confirm that you have made the right hire. It should tell you quickly if you haven’t so you can hire slow and fire fast.

    A reliable onboarding process needs to cover 3 things:

    * What do they need to know?
    * By when do they need to know it?
    * Where can they find it?
