Join Dan Rather as he shares leadership principles of the world’s most powerful leaders and how small businesses can benefit from them in the Verizon Small Business Ready Webinar Series.

For more than 40 years, former CBS News anchor and 60 Minutes correspondent Dan Rather has been the embodiment of the intrepid broadcast journalist. From the Kennedy assassination—where he was the first to break the news that the president had been killed—to the Indian Ocean tsunami, he has covered every major story of our time, with distinction and a fierce dedication to hard news. For his unparalleled devotion to his craft, he was named the 2012 recipient of the Edward R. Murrow Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Rather’s reporting skills are legendary, and his single-minded pursuit of the story has taken him to datelines as far ranging as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, China, Russia, and Cuba.

On the domestic front, Rather has covered every presidential campaign since 1952. Rather’s latest journalistic venture is the hard-edged news show Dan Rather Reports, broadcasted on AXS TV, on which he acts as both host and managing editor. With his renowned in-depth interviews and his love of investigative reporting, Rather is able to accurately report on major issues facing our nation today. From politics and the global economy to international affairs and the environment, he gives each story the time and commitment that it deserves.

In May 2012 his memoir, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News, was published.

    Retirement may seem like a distant reality, but many small business owners wait until it's too late to successfully transfer their company to the next generation. Succession planning is a process that involves much more than just transfer of ownership, and it only becomes more complicated when you add family dynamics to the mix.

  • Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Dean Takahashi, Games Beat Editor, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 62 mins
    Most games need to make money. It’s a simple reality. In free-to-play games, this can be a formidable challenge when players are under no obligation to pay. Forcing players to pay is not a good plan - they’ll only leave disgruntled. The trick is to inspire player engagement, long-term retention, and multiple payments. But that’s easier said than done, right?

    We can show you how to rock a bottom line without turning off your best players, and make cash hand over fist in the process. The secret lies in data - what to measure, what to ignore, and which actions to take based on those KPIs.

    Using data has been proven to increase profits and player satisfaction. Sound too good to be true? Join the webinar and discover how data covers all bases you need for a lucrative game.

    Learn how to:
    * Target the right players, and the key engagement strategies that work
    * Maximize profits from ads and IAP, and which players are most receptive
    * Predict and measure the lifetime value of players by acquisition channel
    * Apply killer strategies, taking lessons from the most successful games
    * Unlock the lesser-known data secrets behind monetization

  • Resiliency Response & Comms: Your first-line of defense against a disruption Resiliency Response & Comms: Your first-line of defense against a disruption Margaret Mills (IBM) Recorded: May 20 2016 64 mins
    Most businesses have near zero tolerance for service outages and disruptions, regardless of the cause. How do Business Continuity professionals demonstrate a positive ROI for applications while meeting always-on expectations? In an operationally always-on world, business communications must be real-time with rapid response to outages to keep your business running. To achieve this level of Operational Resiliency, you must implement automated communications that eliminate breakdown during a crisis event or disruption. Join this webinar to learn about the latest technologies that you can use today to automate communications for real-time incident and crisis management, regardless of the channel. Are you ready to respond to your next disruption?
  • Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Effective crisis communication techniques to avoid a reputation train wreck Caroline Sapriel (CS&A International) Recorded: May 20 2016 61 mins
    There are crises and then there are reputation train wrecks. In the former, your organisation is thrown into a period of chaos that may last days, weeks or months. Stakes and costs are high, but by quickly demonstrating ownership, integrity, genuine stakeholder concern and swift action, your chance of recovering and even enhancing your organisation’s reputation is strong. Think Johnson and Johnson’s Tylenol crisis.

    In the latter on the other hand, slow response, lack of responsibility, blame and insensitivity to stakeholders’ perceptions will quickly propel your organisation into a reputation train wreck that may damage and possibly destroy it forever. Think BP, Volkswagen and FIFA.

    Indeed bad management and communication can turn a crisis into a reputation train wreck and only principled-based organisations with effective crisis leadership and preparedness can weather the storm and even emerge from it stronger. In this webinar, you will:

    - Gain some fundamental best practice insight on how prepare for crises and prevent a reputation train wreck
    - Learn real-world response strategies to protect your credibility and retain stakeholder trust even in the most adverse circumstances

  • Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots David Hu, VP of Engineering for Dexter Recorded: May 19 2016 49 mins
    In this webinar, we’re going to talk about how the hyper-personalization of smartphones is taking mobile marketing to an entirely new level. Search Engine Optimization has transformed the way brands are marketers get their products to the public and the trend is reaching into Apps as well. Given that 90% of users’ time on their smartphones are spent on apps (according to some sources), getting users to your particular app can be particularly lucrative.

    But that’s not the only way that Smartphone Personalization is innovating how we market: In-app ads and how to block in-app adds (and how to outsmart them) is the next challenge marketers must face. Our webinar will bring together a mix of voices, all experts in their respective fields, to provide a unique and complex perspective from all angles of Mobile Marketing.
