Moderated by Ludovic LeforestierLinkedIn @lludovic), Bearing Point and IIAR Board

When: Thursday 22 September 2016
Time: 08.00 PST/ 11.00 EDT/ 16.30 BST/ 17.30 CEST

The Internet and mobile technologies have changed the way people interact and created a population that is always on and always connected. 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 →

IIAR Webinar: Adventures in Analyst Relations

IIAR Webinar: Adventures in Analyst Relations 
Presented by Peggy O’Neill, Senior Director, Analyst Relations at Informatica Peggy O'Neill
When: 13th July 2016
Time: 08:30 PST/ 16:30 BST/ 17:30 CET
Like anything in life, the more you put in the more you get out.
Understanding where your organization is in terms of its Analyst Relations is important. In this webinar Peggy will guide us through how to establish where an AR program is and paint a picture of what is possible. It summarizes the benefits you receive as your company invests more in AR and becomes more mature about how it works with the analyst community.

Companies that do strategic AR understand how to get the most out of their analyst relationships. They are also confident and can articulate their vision and roadmap, and can plan their analyst interactions accordingly. But they’re not so confident that they think they can’t learn anything from analysts.

Please note that the webinar is for IIAR members only, if you are not a member and an Analyst Relations professional who is interested in attending please email Maria Ashton: [email protected]

IIAR Christmas Party kicks of the festive season with a bang….

The Christmas season took off with a bang last night with the IIAR Christmas Party taken place in the heart of DIGITAL UK in the Shoreditch Hotel. Attending were around 100 people from the Analyst community including around 70 industry analysts and 30 AR Pros. The analyst community was represented by analysts from Gartner, Forrester, PAC, IDC, IHS, Constellation and many others.

The event was kindly sponsored by Dell. From their perspective, the evening provided a fantastic networking opportunity in a fun and festive setting. The impressive turnout and the wide variety of analysts and AR professionals in attendance, created the ideal environment to catch up with existing analyst connections as well as establish new relationships with the ever-growing EMEA analyst community. 2015 has certainly been a busy year for all and the IIAR Christmas drinks were a great way to celebrate the successes of the year as we look towards an exciting 2016.

The other highlight of the evening was the announcement of the Analyst Firm and Analyst of the year. See Analyst of the Year 2015

IIAR Jingle Bells c/o Dell

dell-blue_spot hi-resWith nearly 150 Analysts and AR Professionals confirmed to attend on the night, the 9th December, it seemed as though all arrived together to share a glass (or two, or three, or more) at the IIAR Christmas Party. The private room at the Convent Garden hostelry, complete with roaring fire and Christmas decorations was, at times, full to bursting. Never the less, a good time was had  by all who attended and the “free bar” (kindly sponsored by Dell) lasted all evening. Here are a few words, provided by our sponsor …

From a Dell perspective, the evening provided a fantastic networking opportunity in a fun and festive setting. The impressive turnout and the wide variety of analysts and AR professionals in attendance, created the ideal environment to catch up with existing analyst connections as well as establish new relationships with the ever-growing EMEA analyst community. 2014 has certainly been a busy year for all and the IIAR Christmas drinks were a great way to celebrate the successes of the year as we look towards an exciting 2015.

Dell also provided a fantastic tablet computer for the prize draw. The lucky winner was Peter Hall, Principal  Analyst at Ovum.

For those who missed the evening – and who attended, here are a few pictures, some taken before the crowd fully developed !

Here’s to another great IIAR Party and may we wish everyone a Fantastic Festive Holiday and a Prosperous New Year !!

New! US-based IIAR Networking Events in November and December

Liberty SmallAnalyst 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.
