    Influence-Based Job Search The use of influence-based techniques can enhance the success of your job search, because they increase the effectiveness of virtually all your job search-related activities. These activities include asking for references, getting job referrals, networking, scheduling informational interviews, and being selected as a potential job candidate. Then, once employed, these same techniques can be used to maximize your job performance and position you for future professional growth. This is achieved by incorporating influence-based techniques into your interpersonal communication activities, such as negotiation, organizational change, sales, leadership, conflict resolution and more. This talk contains the concepts, techniques, tips, and tricks needed to help you secure your next job role, enhance your future job performance, and accelerate your career!

    Finding Value in Business Intelligence featuring: Will Scarborough, Vice President Impact Analytics at City Year and Tom Spicer, Analytics Consultant and Founder at Openbridge What is holding your organization back from achieving the next level of analytics?

Will Scarborough, working outside of the IT Department, will reflect on challenges from the other side. Discussion begins with how to build Analytics success when that requires multi-disciplinary coordination.
