3. Internet of Things and Big Data as Competitive Advantage (Presentation and Discussion)
November, 2017 | Centre for Social Innovation, Spadina
Integral to establishing and sustaining an edge, it is important for leaders to understand what “Big Data” is, where it comes from, how to handle it, and – most importantly – how to leverage it in their respective companies to compete. Big Data is a tool companies use to become leaders in their industries; it helps strategic leaders reduce waste, understand their market, and improve productivity.
- What will the future of Big Data be?
- Who are the key players?
- What jobs and businesses will be replaced or created?
Leaders of strategy need to understand big data, its risks and opportunities, and how to integrate it into your strategic planning. This seminar will also discuss current trends in the telecom and smart home industries.
4. Marketing Strategy for the Digital Age
December, 2017 | Presented by Katherine Tmej, Vice-President Marketing of Strategic Leadership Forum Toronto
Social media, mobile apps, and the sharing economy have changed industries in ways no one could have predicted. Digital disruption is happening quicker than ever. This, coupled with generational differences between consumers and increasing regulations on businesses in how they collect, manage, and use information, makes it easy for Marketing Strategy to take a backseat to the details.
In this presentation, participants will learn recent trends in digital marketing, including actionable tools and applicable regulations, such as CASL.
