  • Is Advertising Dead? Tips For Creating A Compelling Content Strategy To Stand Out In A Crowded Market

    , Director of Marketing Communications (Global Workplace Hub Group & North America)

    Consumers receive between 3,500 to 5,000 messages every day. Advertising has now become white noise that frankly speaking, people find irritating – myself included. I’m aware of the irony here, given my chosen and much enjoyed profession! This is particularly true if the advertisement interrupts the thing you are trying to do. Just think about that video featured on your Facebook feed that you clicked on, only to find it interrupted mid-way through with an advertisement. I for one, immediately turn off the video, irritated that my viewing experience has been interrupted, albeit for only 60 seconds. (more…)

    A Glimpse Of What’s Ahead For Healthcare I.T.

    , Marketing Manager

    A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend my first Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Conference & Exhibition. Professionals, from all over the world and within all sectors of the healthcare spectrum, converged in Orlando – from physicians and healthcare executives, to vendors and policymakers. I went in starry-eyed and full of excitement as the annual conference unfolded its keynotes, presentations, products, and people. For me, it was non-stop activity throughout the event but an eye-opening, memorable experience. It certainly made a lasting impression (and I’m not only referring to the physical impact it had, with almost 100,000 steps taken). (more…)

    Recognizing The Importance Of The Moment – It’s Here

    , National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    Imagine being on Apollo 8, on December 24, 1968, with the astronauts who became the first humans to circle the moon. The mission was historic but, the famous “Earthrise” photo that resulted, showing Earth rising above the lunar landscape was even more memorable. Up until that point, no human eyes had ever seen our blue marble from such a distance.  The photo has been described by Nature photographer Galen Rowell as, “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.”   Ironically, of all the objectives NASA had set before launch, no one had thought of photographing the Earth from lunar orbit.  They did not predict the importance of that moment, and the photo that would forever change our view of the earth. Nonetheless, the moment was upon them and, they were ready.

    Breaking Out Of Comfort Zones For New Possibilities

    , National Director of Healthcare Services

    Comfort Zones. We all have them. We approach our jobs in routine, ritualistic fashion, shop at the same stores, eat at the same restaurants, and solve problems in a way that feels the most comfortable to us. Many of us have seen, however, that when we break through them and challenge ourselves to try something new–learning a new skill for work, seeking a different type of vacation, trying out unfamiliar foods– the results can be dramatic.

    Modern Security Doesn’t Just Surveil, It Analyzes

    , Director, Business Intelligence Services

    “Smile. You’re on Camera.”- Has a new meaning with Intelligent Video Security Services

    As a kid, I remember walking into department stores, looking up to find, well… me. I’m on TV! Of course, like many of you, I took the opportunity to fool around on camera before my mom pulled me away from the intrusive lens. Before reel-to-reel media was developed to offer on-site recording, video surveillance systems involved constant monitoring. Then in the 70’s, about the time that I was acting out a scene from Sesame Street in the store lobby, VHS revolutionized videotaping and storage finally making it convenient for the user. (Man, I would love to have some of that old footage!) The point is, like countless other technologies, video surveillance systems have advanced exponentially, growing well beyond yesterday’s CCTV (closed-circuit television) systems. (more…)

    Bridging The Gap Between Automation And Innovation

    , Vice President, Global Client Services and Solutions

    Automation and Innovation. At first glance, these two words referenced in the same sentence could understandably be seen by some as a paradox. The irony is that one can create capacity for the other. The challenge lies in the inability of some businesses to leverage the newly-found free time created by automation into innovation. And that innovation comes in many forms; from more face time with clients to developing new products and business solutions. (more…)

    The Pathway To Faster Public Records Fulfillment

    , ECM Account Manager

    More than ever before, government officials feel increased pressure to provide easy access to public records, and often face legal mandates for fulfilling requests. Unfortunately, an overreliance on paper-based, manual public records request fulfillment makes meeting request deadlines difficult. Hunting down documents from multiple departments, locations and filing cabinets puts a strain on government staff and leads to lengthy fulfillment cycles. Given the increase in public document requests and the scrutiny from the federal government to provide the public with better access to records, there is no doubt constituents want better access to public records. With this comes an expectation that government offices responsible for complying with these requests are prompt in their response. (more…)
