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

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”. Continue Reading →
