It’s Friday night and your exec / stakeholder / boss (tick all that applies) walks into your cubicle / desk / office brandishing what clearly is a Gartner report in his hand. Alas, it’s clear it does not mean kudos and a promotion -she’s clearly fuming, probably after being lambasted by the higher echelons. She’s getting closer and you’re guessing it’s about that magic quadrant. Yup, the dot moved down a little bit. The analyst won’t explain, you’ve tried his boss, send some emails and it feels you’re out of options.
Time to play the trump card. Continue Reading →

It’s that time of year again. When all thoughts turn to the biggest global mobile technology and applications showcase in the world, Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). Held each year by the GSMA, the show unveils some key yearly indicators that any attending exhibitor, press member, or aspiring Steve Jobs-acolyte should know about mobile.
According to a recent IIAR webcast I listened into with industry analysts Keith Humphreys of euroLAN and Catherine Haslam of Ovum, as well as members of the IIAR membership committee, estimates say that you’ll be one of nearly 1,500 exhibitors, and more than 67,000 attending members of the public. And if MWC 2012 estimates from the GSMA hold up this year, there could be many more who are interested in demonstrating or learning about your mobile wares.
How can you possibly hope to get maximum value out of Analysts who are attending MWC 2013? Continue Reading →

Ever spent a frustrated hour arguing with an executive on why you shouldn’t have 30 slides for a 30-minute presentation? Or time and again had to insist that a Gartner VP doesn’t need to be told about basic market trends proven with stats from a competing analyst firm?

This will be an invaluable call to anyone in the AR business and give you real ammunition for insisting your executives spend more time preparing analyst presentations. This is a unique opportunity to glean top tips from some of the biggest names in the business and we hope as many of you as possible will join us.
