    • Profitability Through Positive Productivity Profitability Through Positive Productivity Liz Miller,CMO Council; Greg Swender, Oracle; Frank Cespedes, Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School and Author Recorded: May 10 2016 5:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • According to a CMO Council study, “Closing the Gap: Understanding the Sales and Marketing Alignment Imperative,” some 46 percent of sales and marketing executives felt that in order to maximize sales across the organization, the level of action on opportunities needed to be boosted, and the speed to action needed to be accelerated.

      Despite this clear call to work smarter and faster, sales productivity improvements have been slow to materialize. According to CSO Insights, only 33 percent of a sales representative’s time is spent actively selling. Not only is sales struggling to push away the inefficiencies to build those critical relationships, but it can also be hard to actually get sales teams up and running. According to Accenture, 42.5 percent of sales reps take 10 months or longer to become productive enough to contribute to company goals.

      So where and how can businesses empower the front line while sparking profitability through accelerated sales productivity? Are there new calls to action that sales leaders can respond to in an effort to streamline inefficient processes, eliminate waste and remove friction from sales engagement? How are smart organizations growing at scale while remaining compliant and error-free in their engagements with customers and prospects?

      These are just some of the issues that the CMO Council, in partnership with Oracle, will explore in a one-hour, interactive webcast focused on productivity, profitability and opportunities to foster revenue. Joining the discussion will be experts and market leaders in sales and operational effectiveness to share where and how they are maximizing profitability while empowering sales teams and resources to work in a more nimble, agile and lucrative environment.

    • Empowering COPD patients – patient-centric solutions to drive positive outcomes Empowering COPD patients – patient-centric solutions to drive positive outcomes Paul Tunnah (Moderator), Ana-maria Arboleda, Dr Joan Escarrabill, Prof. John Weinman, Rolf Taylor Recorded: Feb 4 2015 2:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • COPD is a widespread, costly and largely preventable condition which affects over 300 million people worldwide and is recognised as the ‘third-leading’ cause of death in most countries. Adherence rates among patients with the condition are seen to be low, despite evidence that shows appropriate use of medication and sensible lifestyle changes can reduce mortality by 60% and hospital admissions by as much as 42%.

      Given the proven increase in quality of life when adherence occurs, and yet the persistence of non-adherence globally, there is clearly a disconnect. So why is poor self-management so prevalent and what can we do about it?

      In conjunction with self-management and behavioural change specialists Atlantis Healthcare, we present a multi-stakeholder webinar and debate, which will combine real world patient needs with expertise from healthcare, pharma and patient advocates to look at the challenges to successful self-management/adherence and ascertain what the industry can do to better support patients in achieving optimum outcomes.

      The webinar is comprised of 15 minutes of presentation and 40 minutes of live debate - which you can participate in, sending questions to the panel.

      A live tweetchat (#rwCOPD) will follow the webinar, enabling full interaction across all stakeholders to further delve into this topic and explore some of the issues and solutions raised during the webcast.

      This is the second webinar within the Patient Insights Summarized series.

      Your panel for this event is:

      Ana-maria Arboleda, Managing Director, Atlantis Healthcare Spain
      Dr Joan Escarrabill, Director of the Master Plan for Respiratory Diseases, Ministry of Health (Catalonia)
      Prof. John Weinman, Head of Health Psychology, Atlantis Healthcare
      Rolf Taylor, ‎Senior Director, Corporate Development, COPD Foundation

    • POSitive Thinking: Detecting and Preventing Point of Sale (POS) Malware Attacks POSitive Thinking: Detecting and Preventing Point of Sale (POS) Malware Attacks Rafe Pilling, Counter Threat Unit Researcher Recorded: Apr 3 2014 11:00 am UTC 52 mins
    • Malware targeting Point of Sale (POS) terminals has been exploited by eCrime operators for a number of years but has recently been catapulted to the forefront of industry attention with a number of high-profile breaches. Properly executed, a malware attack on POS terminals can reap huge volumes of credit card numbers in a short space of time without resorting to low-rate of return strategies involving large phishing campaigns. Due to its low risk/ high reward nature, this type of attack is only likely to become more popular with eCrime operators.

      In the session Rafe Pilling, Counter Threat Unit Special Operations, will look at the nature of the POS malware threat and how it can be defeated through proper application of threat intelligence.

      What will attendees learn:

      * A potted history of POS malware

      * What does the POS malware threat landscape look like?

      * Effective use of threat intelligence to detect and prevent POS malware attacks.

    • Waste strategy: a positive force for the UK's energy infrastructure development? Waste strategy: a positive force for the UK's energy infrastructure development? David Massingham, Public Affairs Director, Covanta Energy Recorded: Apr 20 2012 10:00 am UTC 58 mins
    • Developments in the Waste Strategy have been long awaited and much debated. At best they could unlock some of the barriers to both waste and energy infrastructure development - at worst they could result in recourse to more debate, and a loss of vital inward investment.

      While the financial climate remains difficult, it's no surprise that many of those local authorities who are still to put residual waste solutions in place have had to take a step back to reconsider their options. But the UK cannot afford a protracted period of reconsideration if we are to deliver the required waste and energy capacity to meet targets and actual need. While last year's announcements proved to be a damp squib, early indicators suggest that these new changes will have a positive impact.

      Government energy policy has already identified EfW as one of a handful of technologies that are critical to delivering energy security and low carbon objectives. It is our belief, however, that if we are to deliver the full potential of EfW, we are going to need to exploit resources beyond the municipal sector, especially the energy value of residual Commercial & Industrial (C&I) waste.

      Joining up the dots of all of these combined waste and energy considerations, and taking into account planning and localism, is an enormous challenge - for government and for those working within the sector.

      Covanta is the largest Energy-from-Waste provider in the world, operating 46 plants worldwide. The company has more than 25 years' experience and treats over 18 million tonnes or residual waste annually from which it derives more than 9 million megawatt hours of sustainable energy.

      Covanta is making a considerable investment into the UK and Irish Energy-from-Waste markets, making up to 2 million tonnes of EfW capacity available over the next five years. Through this programme Covanta will be investing in communities, through job creation and community partnerships.
