Scheduled Zoom Shows

Aug 12, 1 pm-2pm ET US: Strategic Track | Business Operating Systems – The Perfect Prescription for a Better Business? Register Now.

Summary: Smart leaders and great organizations have used Business Operating Systems (BOS) for decades to achieve their goals more predictably. Yet most small businesses aren’t aware of these systems or how they can be applied to addressing real-life issues—such as how to pivot to new opportunities after a sudden pandemic. A Business Operating System is a set of simple, yet powerful tools that helps leadership make better decisions, achieve greater results, foster alignment, save money, continuously improve, and create higher quality experiences for all stakeholders, starting with the CEO.
This EEA Zoom show is designed for management in any of the following situations:
  • Current business opportunities or challenges require rapid reorganization or pivoting of products, services, or the business model.
  • You have hit a ceiling and can’t quite get to the next level.
  • You’ve run out of fun. The business you once loved is killing you.
  • There is growing pressure to run businesses in a more people-centric way and report those efforts to key stakeholders.
  • You are curious about better ways to grow an organization.
This show will feature both an expert in Business Operating Systems and the CEO of a leading event company who  will explain how his organization is using a BOS to rapidly pivot to take advantage of new opportunities in virtual meetings. 
Speakers: Todd Hanson, President, Catalyst Performance Group, a leader in Business Operating Systems and Engagement ROI; Allin Foulkrod, CEO and Founder, Creative Visions, a leading Raleigh, NC-based strategic event and media solution company, and Bob Pankratz, CEO and Founder

July 15, 1 pm-2pm ET US: Strategic Culture: Beyond the Warm and Fuzzy. Click here for the recording.
Summary: Over the last two decades, hundreds of books have focused on leadership and culture, and many CEOs at companies of all sizes have hired coaches to help improve their management styles. And yet, after 20 years or more of talk, probably no more than 20% of organizations have a strategic approach to culture management—i.e., a CE0-led plan that drives a consensus-based brand promise, values, culture, and objectives through a formal process across the enterprise. The result—almost no change in customer and employee engagement. Panelists address why most companies do little more than pay lip service to culture; the potential cost of that oversight; and what can be done about it.
Speakers: Dr. Paul White, Founder, Appreciation at Work,a leader in culture through genuine appreciation; Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance, London Business School and author of the recently published, Grow the Pie, who will be sharing his research on the economic benefits of engagement but also a new equation for making decisions based on smarter human-capital analytics; Gary Rhoads, CEO of Xvoyant.com, and Professor Emeritus, Marketing and Entrepreneurship, Marriott Graduate School of Business, who will provide the perspective of an early pioneer in Enterprise Engagement as creator of Allegiance, now MaritzCX, a customer experience company, and more recently of Xvoyant, a sales engagement SaaS platform that is yielding fascinating insights on sales behaviour based on empirical data; and Barbara Porter, Managing Director, EY, who has managed culture both as a CEO of her own company and as an advisor to many others. 

July 22, 1 pm ET US: Advertising and Marketing in the Era of Authenticity. Click here for the recording.
Summary: This Zoom Show features leaders in branding, marketing, and advertising to discuss the future of marketing and advertising in the time of Covid-19. On the one hand, the severe economic downturn and increasing push to digital is squeezing margins for agencies, and on the other hand, consumers have become even more skeptical about companies and are demanding a greater focus on people and authenticity: 70% of respondents to a recent JUST Capital/Harris Poll say they prefer to do business, work for, or do business with people-focused businesses. This Zoom show addresses the potential impact of this collision of trends on advertising and marketing. Does the field of advertising and marketing field have a transformative opportunity in the era of authenticity and purpose? Are clients ready to be challenged to use the powerful tools of advertising and marketing to focus not only telling the truth and helping people in their campaigns, but on keeping their promises? Are marketers ready to build internal and distribution partner engagement and promise delivery into every “campaign?” 
Speakers: Matthew Della CrocePresident Global and Corporate for Allison PartnersSatish Kordea brand strategy consultant and formerly CEO of GTBand Allan SteinmetzCEO, Founder, Inward Consulting, will join EEA Zoom show host Bruce Bolger, Enterprise Engagement Alliance at TheEEA.org founder, on how the advertising and marketing field can adapt to the new focus on authenticity and purpose.
