    • Real-time Personalisation: The power of conversational content Real-time Personalisation: The power of conversational content Spencer Waldron, Regional Manager - Western Europe at Prezi, & Andrea Goodkind, Senior Marketing Manager at BrightTALK Upcoming: Aug 18 2016 12:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Over 61% of B2B marketers leverage personalised content to better shape the experience (Cintell). Marketers spend an enormous amount of time, bandwidth, and finances to create various content segmented by persona, stage, or vertical to have the best influence. But when it comes to creating and delivering presentations, many marketers and salespeople are still taking a traditional approach: build a different presentation for each opportunity, memorise a script and deliver the same one-way, linear presentation, no matter who the audience is or what information they need.

      Enter conversational presenting, an emerging trend that allows you to customize your presentation in real-time to make the best connection for the most success. Prezi’s European Regional Manager, Spencer Waldron, and BrightTALK’s Senior Marketing Manager, Andrea Goodkind, will discuss some of the best tactics to evolve previously stale, one-sided presentations into personalised conversations. Topics may include:

      Channels to leverage before the presentation to give the audience what they want
      The questions you should always ask your audience in order to determine what will resonate with them the most
      Live tactics for real-time content personalisation while presenting

    • As digital, mobile commerce crescendos, Identity and Access Management (IAM) techniques are key to providing a consistent, individualized experience, regardless of the device used or communications channel employed.

It is important to develop and employ technologies that make authentication friction-free and pleasant.

    • Mobile Data Traffic: Taming the Beast! Mobile Data Traffic: Taming the Beast! Nisar Sanadi, Product Line Manager, EXFO Recorded: Jun 12 2014 3:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • Thanks to the seemingly insatiable appetite for data on the move, mobile data traffic is expected to continue growing at a phenomenal rate into the foreseeable future. Besides the volume of data flowing through wireless networks, the number of connected devices is also expected to explode as a result of growth in machine-to-machine (M2M) deployments. As such, mobile data clearly needs to be proactively managed in order to keep CAPEX and OPEX under control, ensure fair use of network resources, guarantee quality of service (QoS), and enable operators to monetize their infrastructure investments. The introduction of VoLTE, conversational video, and other such QoS-sensitive services makes this all the more critical. Certain key mechanisms such as policy and charging control (PCC) and deep packet inspection (DPI) can be employed to manage and monetize mobile data. These techniques should work flawlessly within a live network in order to meet the above-mentioned objectives, with comprehensive lab testing being the only way to ensure such cohesion.

      This webinar will focus on the following topics and more:

      • Lab testing of wireless networks and elements from a mobile data management and monetization perspective
      • The growing significance of PCC and DPI in next-generation wireless networks
      • Various test scenarios spanning aspects, including guaranteed bit rate (GBR) and maximum bit rate (MBR) enforcement, charging and dynamic policy updates

    • The Power of Social Media: Leveraging Blogs The Power of Social Media: Leveraging Blogs Haley Hebert, Digital Marketing Director, LEWIS Pulse Agency Recorded: May 1 2013 6:30 pm UTC 67 mins
    • About 57 million people read and follow blogs looking for news, thought leadership, and general products and services information. In fact, 50% of blog readers say they specifically find blogs useful for pinpointing purchase information. And, because Blogs are seen as honest and more conversational, small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers are extremely responsive to the information presented as opposed to being faced with hard-sell tactics, which are sometimes seen as less trust-worthy.

      Because of this, as an SMB-focused Channel Partner, there is no better time than now to ensure that you, too, are using the power of social media to become a “trusted advisor” in the lucrative, growing SMB market space to garner the attention of new and existing SMB customers.

      In this webcast, Maximizing Blogs for SMB Success, you will:
      - Understand the value of using Blogs to attract SMB customers
      - Increase your comfort level in navigating and using Blogs
      - Learn how you can integrate Blogs into the ways you do work
      - Raise your awareness about Blogging guidelines and appropriate use

    • Top 5 Things Marketers Need to Understand about Location and Privacy Top 5 Things Marketers Need to Understand about Location and Privacy Greg Sterling, Opus Research; Jules Polonetsky, Future of Privacy Forum Recorded: Jul 2 2014 5:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Consumers are ambivalent about online privacy. Some surveys suggest outright hostility to mobile-location tracking; others argue users are happy to share personal information for clear rewards and benefits. Consumers also express a desire for greater personalization of online, mobile and shopping experiences. How can these contradictory positions be reconciled?

      The privacy landscape is evolving rapidly with Apple making location privacy changes in iOS 8 and state governments getting involved in regulating privacy in the absence of federal action.

      Rather than an “issue that will blow over,” privacy has become a central discussion for marketers and brands. It’s the flipside of “big data.” But timidity, passivity and denial won’t work. Stakeholders must proactively tackle the issue head on.

      Join Greg Sterling, Senior Analyst with Opus Research, and Future of Privacy Forum founder Jules Polonetsky for an informative, interactive webinar about the latest developments in location and privacy on Wednesday, July 2, 10 am PDT /1 pm EDT.
