Analyst Relations: it can be rewarding, exhilarating, frustrating and – despite the fact that we’re often talking with analysts and spokespeople – it can be lonely, too. Especially when you’re the only one at your company who does what you do . . . or even knows what you do!
As AR professionals, we are often a team of one, haven’t had much formal training, and are being asked to do more than ever before. It’s not easy. But we’re not alone. We are part of of a global community, one that is growing, evolving and learning to address new challenges every day.
For several years, IIAR members in the UK and Europe have taken advantage of IIAR Networking Cafe events to meet up, make new contacts, discuss common challenges and opportunities, mentor each other and strengthen the AR Community.
Now, we’re bringing the same opportunity to the the other side of the “pond”.
The IIAR is pleased to announce our first two local U.S. Networking Cafes, sponsored by the AR Forum. These informal evening events will offer U.S.-based AR professionals a chance for networking and exchanging ideas with peers.
These initial U.S. events will be opened to include to all AR professionals, and are not exclusive to members of IIAR. Any AR professional based near — or traveling to — a host city on the scheduled dates is welcome to RSVP and attend. Please, pass this information along!
Our first two events will take place in Boston (November 19) and New York (December 4). Below, you’ll find specifics for each event and who to contact for an invitation or more information.
