On Thursday evening I spoke at the inaugural meeting of the eConsultancy ‘alumni’ network. This network is for people who’ve studied on the eConsultancy Masters programmes, or the Graduate Academy. I’ve been pleased to work with both of these groups and so it was a pleasure to see some familiar faces in the crowd (although it meant that I couldn’t reuse material!).
Fortunately, I had some up-to-the-minute results on Christmas trading and trends, as well as the first outing of work I’m doing on data and epiphonomena. I’ll be giving these a further outing in the coming weeks in Manchester and Brighton.
In the meantime, slides from the evening are on my Slideshare account, or below:
ACSEL, now L’Association de l’économie Numérique, is France’s leading body representing eCommerce, multichannel and distance selling (Vente a Direct – VAD) working via digital channels (hence the name change to ‘numerique’).
On Tuesday January 20th they held a conference on eCommerce and social media, with representatives from across Europe looking at the adoption and commercial aspects of SM.
It was a fascinating and very engaged session – some 380 turned up, against a registered level of 120! – and the good folk at Baker and McKenzie (in their wonderful venue) did well to cope – the presentations were filmed and streamed live to an overflow room.
You can see the presentations from Spain, Italy, Slovakia, France, Germany and a Scandinavian overview at the conference page.
My presentation is available on slideshare, embedded below:
