1st Ever IIAR NYC Summer Party

Image-1 (1)

The first NYC IIAR Summer Party was a smashing success.  Some stats:

  • 7 Members from Accenture, HGS, Radware, Spotlight AR and Wipro
  • 9 Prospects
  • 3 Analysts
  • 3 Agency Executives
  • 8 Enterprise Firms represented

Some highlights:

  • Connections forged. Questions discussed. Networking in action. Possible new chapters forming.

Why the IIAR NYC Summer Party – I wanted an event stateside. I haven’t been able to fly over for the IIAR London parties.  Change starts with me.

Why join the IIAR?  For me, it is a chance to discuss AR best practices and challenges in a more formal way than simply networking or responding to questions on Linked In.  I get to hone my networking, party throwing, and collaboration technology skills. I get out of my comfort zone to think about new ways of executing AR strategically.

What’s next for the NYC IIAR Chapter – some ideas – a monthly gathering, a holiday event, a more formal exchange of ideas with programming, office tours.  Chapter members please weigh in on your desires.  Non chapter members, please join in the conversation and join the IIAR @ www.analystrelations.org

Wrap-up: IIAR Germany 2018 kick-off

IIAR German Chapter meeting at Restaurant Ella, MunichA few inches of snow in the deep midwinter in Munich didn’t stop the 2018 IIAR German chapter kick-off from going ahead, with six intrepid AR professionals getting together to exchange news, views and the occasional snippet of gossip – under Chatham House rules, of course.

Hosted by IIAR Germany chapter leads Yvonne Kaupp (@YveKauppLinkedIn) and Simon Jones (@simondestrierLinkedIn), the networking event was focused on the topic of “how to run an effective inquiry”, with IIAR members and guests (our “prospective members”) sharing best practice and experiences. One point which came through loud and clear is that everyone is nervous about running their first analyst inquiry calls – usually related to having enough questions to ask in a 30-minute call.

This new connectivity and interaction patterns have opened up many new business innovation and opportunities, but at the same time has led to behavioral changes that are creating frictions and unmet expectations among employees, partners and customers/prospects. For many companies this manifests as a “sales” problem but is, in fact a buyer behavioral “problem”. Buyers are looking to new sources of information, sharing past experiences and in general influenced in new ways and by different I information sources. Continue Reading →
