Culture has taken on a whole new meaning in today’s workforce. It is a leading characteristic of your company’s brand. Yet few companies find ways to bring their culture to life and create a community of success that adds immeasurable value in and out of the office.
• Avoid the common mistakes of culture creation
• Hire and retain talent that lives and breathes your culture
• Keep the communication channels open
• Use your culture as a competitive advantage
The definition of “work” has been redefined. Small business employees no longer work at a central office location, with many living in other parts of the country or world. Not all of them work full time; many are freelancers. With continuous connectivity, anyone can now work from anywhere at any time. Collaboration has become even more critical to drive your small business to success.
In this webinar you will learn how to attract the best possible employees, sustain a strong corporate culture, solve unique challenges you may encounter and build the products and services your customers need.

The financial crisis brought about huge losses to a large number of financial institutions and exposed many of the internal inefficiencies leveraged to manage risk and data within and across divisions. Today, things have changed dramatically. Despite the many regulatory changes over the years, marketplace lenders have been extremely successful implementing predictive modeling and data aggregation to assess consumers’ and small businesses’ financial health.
New lending technologies allow lenders to improve customer satisfaction by creating a personalized and unique customer experience. By taking into consideration personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data from financial institutions, lenders are able to leverage this data for other opportunities such as cross-selling credit products during the loan-application process. These innovations ultimately provide borrowers with an intuitive and simplified borrowing process.
In this webinar you’ll:
* Get insight into the trends and opportunities driving change in the lending and credit risk management industries
* Explore more accurate predictive ratings models based on alternative data sets
* Discover the future of commercial retail lending and credit risk management
* Learn how to improve credit decisions, collections, and portfolio management using new technologies and data analytics

In today’s expanding marketing landscape—not to mention today’s increasingly complex matrix known as the customer journey—the chief marketing officer is faced with sheer and unadulterated chaos. From the multiplying channels that our customers are defining as their most valued to the massive amounts of customer data and intelligence flooding (i.e., clogging) our analytics and intelligence systems, CMOs must wrangle and tame the complexity in order to make better decisions faster and have true visibility and transparency into performance, outcomes and value to the business.
Unfortunately, the old standards of marketing operations no longer apply, and new approaches, alignments and agility must be included. To delve into the issues of chaos, operations and the mandates to make bold business decisions, the CMO Council, in partnership with Aprimo, will host a one-hour interactive webcast to discuss the complexities and opportunities of modern marketing management. Among the topics to be discussed are:
•How to deliver marketing results at scale with total accountability and transparency in operations
•Best practices to create order from chaos, bringing actionable insights from marketing programs to enhance results and prove ROI
Joining the CMO Council for this best-practice dialogue will be brand leaders who are transforming the chaos across the organization, as well as marketing operations experts who will share examples of where and how transformation can help tame the chaos and turn it into a profitable process.

In a world where everything is getting more complicated and we are all experiencing personal information overload, there is a growing need to understand the tools and processes that are used to make sense of complex subjects and situations.
These tools aren’t hard to learn or even tough to implement, but they are also not part of many people’s education. Information Architecture is the practice of making sense — a set of principles, lessons, and tools to help anyone make sense of anything.

Learn how to increase your comfort with taking on larger information architecture challenges; learn tools and concepts for developing controlled vocabularies and taxonomies; and better understand how to choreograph an organization’s information architecture across audiences, contexts and channels.
Whether you are a student or a professional, a designer, a technologist or a small business owner, or an intern or executive – you can learn how information architecture can help you make sense of your next endeavor.
In a data-centric workforce, metrics and benchmarks provide professionals reasons to invest, alter, and evolve their strategy. One of the biggest trends in content creation and delivery is conducting surveys to capture your target audience’s pain points, thoughts, strategies, and drivers.
As companies continue to compete for market space, one strategy to approach the industry is to create and conduct insightful studies. Prospects and customers alike want to understand the latest trends, what their peers are doing, and where their industry is going. When done right, research elevates your gravitas in the market and serves as an effective way to engage your prospects -- both while completing the study as well as revealing the results.
Join Frost & Sullivan and BrightTALK for an in-depth discussion on research reports and findings. Topics include (but not limited to):
- Defining your goals for conducting research
- How to structure your report for ideal results
- Converting data into marketing content

This presentation will explore not just who is my marketing video audience, but how are they viewing the video? David, Mark, and Mark will discuss the different approaches required for mobile video from the storytelling and the aesthetic/technical perspective.
We'll breakdown these important questions: Can you be sure that your audience will have the audio turned on? Why does direct address to camera work so well for mobile? What’s the ideal length for a mobile video? Could a slick, commercial style video actually be less successful than a playful more personal story?
Addressing these ideas through the concepts of mobile aesthetics, user authenticity, personalization, humor, narrative, and serialization, David, Mark, and Mark explain how to optimize your video marketing for the vast mobile audience.
To find out the state of sales enablement in 2016, look no further than CSO Insights' benchmark data on sales enablement optimization. This year's report reveals a picture of sales organizations in dire need of support, with only 56% of sales reps achieving or exceeding quota last year and an average ramp-up time of seven months or more. Long ramp up times, low quota attainment, & less time spent actively selling – all of these paint a picture of rapidly decreasing sales productivity.
In this webinar, Tamara Schenk, analyst at CSO Insights and a leading voice in the sales enablement space, will talk about why that is, as well as uncover:
– How sales enablement has evolved over the past two years
– Why so many companies fail to reach their sales enablement goals
– The importance of having a formalized sales enablement program
– The revenue impact of aligning sales to the customer’s journey
Video is a very persuasive medium; it’s engaging and leads can use it to make their way through the entire funnel at their own pace – all you have to do is set up the content journey.

In this webinar, we will share tips on how real-world B2B marketers can use video to turn late stage prospects into buyers. We'll also cover:
• 8 different video types to support the BoFu
• How to map your content to different stages of the funnel
• What information your potential buyers are looking for
• How to connect your video marketing campaigns to ROI
