  • »A Force in Consumer Banking
    Banks have been stepping up their customer satisfaction game in recent years against the typical market forces at play. The pace of change has been head-spinning for an industry not well known for its swift response to customers.

    The modern healthcare system is much like the ocean—stormy, choppy, and hostile at times, soothing, calm and inviting at others. For surfers, the more waves you go for, the more you will catch, and the more likely you’ll “wipe-out.”

    Consultants are always looking for the next big thing, the innovation that will see clients storming through their gates, bypassing pesky procurement departments, and writing blank checks for the magic mousetrap that whitens and brightens and cleans windows, too.

The enterprise social platforms market, which represents one of many components of corporate social media spending, is expected to top $2 billion by 2014, according to a recent survey.*
This is good news for consulting firms.
Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn started out as simple platforms for like-minded groups of people to communicate and share ideas. Today, these same social networking sites are translating into big business for companies looking to reach targeted clients and customers.
In order to increase their business through social media, companies need to make sweeping internal changes to their existing processes, systems integration, and organizational change management. How can consultants create a thriving social media practice that generates significant revenue for clients?
With that in mind, plan now to join us online April 25—at no cost—and uncover answers to such critical questions as:
  • Which consulting opportunities in social media is your firm missing out on?
  • How are leading consulting firms capitalizing on social media right now?
  • What is the overall potential for consulting firms in the social media market?
  • What steps should you be taking to position your firm for success in social media?
PLUS—get answers to your own questions during the live question and answer session immediately following the presentation.
Hosted by Consulting Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Joe Kornik, this webinar promises a unique perspective on social media and its current and future impact on the profession from several thought leaders on the topic. Each will offer an insider's view on what is driving demand, as well as challenges, opportunities and case studies that will highlight some of the best practices right now.
Chris Boudreaux, Senior Vice President of Business Integration at Converseon—a social media agency that helps brands harness the power of social media to meet business objectives—will discuss evolving dynamics between agencies and consultancies as their social media services grow more similar and competitive.
Also presenting is Kate Sayre, a Boston Consulting Group partner who helped conduct a cross-industry benchmarking study related to corporate social media opinions, needs, usage and progress. Kate helps BCG ramp up its own social media expertise, conducting “social media boot camps” designed to get BCG consultants up to speed so that they can better understand the implications of the technology on clients.
Alton Adams, a KPMG Partner will focus on how companies can use social media to transform their businesses, particularly in the way the businesses interact with customers, employees, and other stakeholders, including how to engage and retain customers, as well as to drive e-commerce and improve employee engagement.
And finally, Scott Clarke, who leads Capgemini Consulting’s marketing, sales and service practice in North America, will discuss leveraging social media to drive brand experience and loyalty. Clarke, calling on case studies, will also reveal how leading firms are aligning social media with their overall customer experience strategy and value proposition.
This event is offered free of charge to consulting professionals courtesy of our sponsor, IFS. We invite you to register now and to forward this invitation to others in your organization.
