IIAR Christmas Party – 9th December 2014

Tree01There’s a mere 70-odd days to go before Santa is due. The shops are setting out their Yuletide wares, Christmas jumper days are being arranged and the IIAR is aiming to be the first “must attend ” Christmas party in everyone’s diaries.

This year, we’re holding our Christmas festivities in Covent Garden, London on Tuesday 9th December, from 5.30pm and we aim to surpass our Summer Party in venue, numbers and fun – not an easy task given the success of our summer parties !!

Free food and drinks await those who venture out amidst the winter snow.

All analysts and AR folk are welcome. Analysts and IIAR members get in for free – a good reason for joining the IIAR. There are also a limited number of guest tickets available at £75 each.

We can’t guarantee you a seat but we do promise you an entertaining time, whether you stay the whole evening or just pop by for a quick drink

Many thanks to our friends at Dell for sponsoring our 2014 party and helping make it possible for us to provide what will be the most fun Analyst/AR Christmas Party in the UK this year.

IDC, End-Users and Strategic AR – all at our latest London meeting

MK 2small Panel 1 smallWell, that was a late one but well worth it.

In a mammoth three hour meeting (we didn’t lock the doors, people just didn’t want to leave) those attending last night’s IIAR meeting in London enjoyed an informative interview Marianne Kolding of IDC by Simon ‘Jeremy’ Levin of The Skills Connection.

In his quiet, persistent manner, Simon coaxed Marianne into explaining how IDC works with CIOs and what research it’s now producing for the IT buyer.

And it turns out that there’s quite a lot. Marianne talked through the reach and exposure IDC has with end-users. She also explained several newer services that the company is launching directly to target the CIO and in-house IT decision makers.

David Rossiter of Sunesis/Harvard PR then had the pleasure of chairing a panel discussion on Strategic AR.

It was a spirited, entertaining and insightful conversation. Led by our three panellists – Bill ReedAGTDom PannellUnisys; and our own Yash KhannaTCS – the audience weren’t shy about sharing their views on what they heard as well as their experiences.

We should provide wine and beer more often.

For IIAR members who couldn’t be there in-person, you can listen to recordings of both sessions in Huddle. For non-IIAR members, you can have access if you join up but otherwise you’ve missed out on two great conversations.

Our next meeting is at Christmas on the 9th December, in central London. We’ve got a great party planned, which Dell is kindly sponsoring. You should really come along for at least one drink.

This, not to miss Forum, has just got better, there are now two panel discussions …

New panel discussion - Selling your company on the value of professional analyst relations …

It can sometimes be a challenging task to sell the value of professional analyst relations to the business. We’ve all been asked time after time, “so tell me again, why are these analysts important?”. We’re therefore delighted to have a panel of experts, including Bill Reed and Tim O’Sullivan (confirmed so far, there may be more), sharing their insights and experiences on how you can successfully show the value of analysts to the rest of your company and demonstrate the variety of important roles they have in influencing customers and other stakeholders. Please bring your thinking and talking hats along as this will be a practical, debate driven session on the explanations, arguments and tactics that can be used with management and colleagues alike.

This IIAR Forum is open to all IIAR Members, past and prospective IIAR Members.
