A few weeks ago, right before most of us went on our summer holidays we hosted the annual IIAR Summer Networking event at the EY offices in London, a party kindly sponsored by HCL Technologies and EY. As we begin to settle back into daily work routines, we wanted to take a moment to ponder the event, the conversations had, the old relationships that were nurtured and the new ones formed.
During the evening, we welcomed almost 40 industry analysts from firms including Gartner, IDC, Ovum, 451 Research, CCS Insight, Heavy Reading, Navigant Research, Freeform Dynamics, Bloor Research and IHS Markit. We were pleased to see so many AR professionals from companies including EY, Cisco, Criteo, GSMA and Vertiv, as well from agencies including Destrier, BITE, CCgroup and Chameleon. With the World Cup England-Croatia game on and stunning views to admire for the non-football fans in the room, there’s no wonder that the conversations were more effervescent that the prosecco enjoyed by attendees. It was a delightful evening which sparked conversations around AR best practice, analyst priorities, as well as informal topics, testament to the great relationships in the community.
During the evening, the IIAR recognised the AR professionals who go above and beyond in their career and have gained the respect and appreciation of analysts globally. Congratulations again to all winners and runners-up and we hope to continue to work closely with you to promote AR best practice. Continue Reading →

We are kicking off Q1 of 2018 for the NYC chapter of the IIAR (Institute of Industry Analyst Relations) with our first networking dinner, taking place on Thursday March 29th at 6pm EDT.
A 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 (@YveKaupp, LinkedIn) and Simon Jones (@simondestrier, LinkedIn), 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.

One of the most picturesque beer gardens in Munich was the setting for this year’s IIAR German Chapter Summer Event, gathering AR professionals and industry analysts. Our topic of the night was what it takes to make an analyst relations (AR) program mature and strong.
As we discussed, what success looks like actually depends on your business objectives and expectations of the individual companies and stakeholders. We all recognised that “AR” has a very wide scope, since it also covers many complementary disciplines and – depending on your job – may include Market Intelligence, Go-to-Market, PR, Sales Enablement, Strategy, or all of these. Reporting lines also influence the weighting of AR components. Continue Reading →
