Impact of Social Media & Brand Identity

11:30am - 12:30pm - Tuesday

 

Mastering Social Media is on the top of the agenda for almost all business executives. They are constantly working to identify ways in which their firms can make profitable use of the popular Social Media platforms: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.

Consumers traditionally use Social Media and the Internet to simply expend content: they read it, watch it, and use it to make informative buying decisions. They are able to use these platforms for a variety of purposes because they have immediate access to this information in the palm of their very hands.

This represents the social media phenomenon. This phenomenon is known to have significant impact a firm's reputation, sales, and even survival. Yet, many executives neglect this form of media because they do not understand what it is, the various purposes it serves or how to engage with it. When used correctly, Social Media can monetize your sales and business growth. Platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter enable the creation of virtual customer environments (VCEs), online communities of interest formed around specific firms, brands, or products. In today’s market we see this as the instant gratification sale.

Increasing your engagement and strengthening your brand identity is vital to the success of this process. I am here to provide you with the steps necessary to develop this type of presence. In this presentation I will coach you through the process of establishing your business’ brand identity across a variety of social media platforms and show you the impact it will have on your sales strategy and overall business goals.

Alignment with Sales Goals for Growth & Sustainability YOY

11:30am - 12:30pm - Wednesday

 

Having a properly aligned Marketing and Sales department can make or break a business. Did you know that getting these departments on the same page is major struggle faced by many companies around the world? If you really boil it down, the marketing team is at the mercy of the sales team. But the marketing team is only successful if the sales team is. A company can sink hundreds of thousands of dollars into marketing tools, resources and campaigns, but unless the sales goals are aligned with these campaigns you will not see the ROI you are hoping for.

Bottom line: Marketing’s main purpose is to generate solid leads that Sales can turn into customers! Their ability to close these deals and gain new customers is depend on the marketing department handing them leads that they can use. Ultimately, marketing and sales are intertwined and equally dependent on each other.

Shouldn't we all be on the same page? So often the marketing and sales teams play like they are on separate teams when should be working hand-in-hand. When the two are truly aligned and inregular communication everything just works.

In this presentation I will be showing you the importance of aligning your business’ communication to get all your departments on the same page, and how to set realistic goals and strategies to generate growth and success Year-Over-Year.

Construction Project Acceleration Part 1:
The concept of cost-time tradeoffs in construction projects

9:30am - 10:30am - Tuesday

 


Construction Project Acceleration Part 2:
A numerical example for calculating the least-duration (crash duration) and least-cost duration

9:30am - 10:30am - Wednesday

 


Construction project compression is an extremely important issue for contractors and owners, yet it is one of the most misunderstood concepts leading to tremendous waste of resources and money. It can even get worse when an acceleration effort backfires and causes a delay in addition to the extra cost. The relationship between project cost and duration is intimate and interesting. Some projects have a “must” completion date while other projects have the least cost as the #1 objective. Contractors need to understand this relationship: Sort out and calculate all options, and then allow the owner to make an educated decision. This seminar explains the cost-time relationship and the process of calculating the optimum durations; cost wise and time wise.

 

Target Audience: Builders and Contractors
