Three simple ways to green your marketing business: (c/o a BBB seminar I attended today on D.I.Y. Business Greening by Eco-audit.ca). The seminar was packed full of ideas, tips and strategies. Like other Marketers, I am guilty of printing materials out all the time.

2) Print double-sided

3) Reduce document margins

Microsoft Ignite Event: Client to Cloud

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Just finished up some work last week at the Client to Cloud Microsoft Energize IT Event. There was a great turnout.

It’s amazing how long the cloud technology has been out for but it is only until now it is starting to get some attention.

Big Brands today that sold something else when they first started

Monday, April 5th, 2010

It’s always so inspiring to read the journeys of how businesses got to where they are today, especially the big names.

Who would have thought that Tiffany’s original core business was silverware.

Who would have thought that Nokia started out with the opening of a pulp mill.

These brands still remain at the top of our minds even though they had a rough start thanks to Marketing.

Happy Reading!

Thoughts on Globe 2010 Vancouver

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Just finished up a week of work at Globe 2010 Vancouver. Again, Globe 2010 was a huge success with 10000+ visitors in attendance.  I can only imagine how much preparation work  goes into organizing and marketing this conference.

There were  green and sustainable technologies presented by exhibitors from all over the world. Attendees were sure wowed. Dragon’s Den was onsite conducting auditions.  Lots of exciting stuff going on throughout the day that’s for sure.

Stay tuned for Globe 2012!

MRIA Vancouver March 25th Lunch and Learn Event: Privacy Risks in a Web 2.0 World.

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Topic:
From Social Engineering to Social Networking: Privacy Risks in a Web 2.0 World.

Speaker:
David W. Stark, CIPP,
President of MRIA, Vice President TNS Canada.

Topic Description:
Social engineering scams trading on the good names of reputable research organizations threaten to undermine the public’s participation in legitimate surveys. Major scams in several countries are duping consumers in the name of research. Online panels that use social networking features need to address potential risks head on lest they or their panelists become victims of fraudsters’ schemes. In addition, Web 2.0 poses other challenges. Blogs, RSS news feeds, and the tell-all mentality of social networks make it increasingly difficult to protect sensitive concepts displayed in online surveys and keep client information confidential. This presentation reveals steps that researchers can take to mitigate all these risks.

Event Details:
Thursday March 25, 2010
Doors Open: 11:30
Lunch & Networking: 11:45 – 12:30
Speaker: 12:30 – 13:30
