When is it?
Microsoft’s virtual presentation will take place on Wednesday 18th of November at 11:10 – 11:40. You can add it to your personal schedule here.
All of the talks are exactly the same quality as last year – the only thing that’s changed is no longer having to commute to London’s ExCel. Everything is held online and it’s completely free for you to sign up.
“All about marketing”
First things first, you should know that Microsoft’s speaker and Account Director, Sophie Sarin, isn’t one to be missed.
Just one part of her role includes taking care of everything from maximising the ROI of agencies’ and brands’ digital media spend, to planning and pitching proactive solutions that grow revenue and meet customer’s needs. If there’s anyone you can learn from right now about growing your business, it’s Sophie.
Sophie’s talk, “Marketing for everyone”, will discuss how you can ensure your business includes everyone’s varying thoughts and opinions, and how to make diversity and inclusion real for your business.
The full description reads:
“As the world continues to become more diverse, inclusion is more critical to every brand and organization across the globe. Over 1 billion people have disabilities around the world, with many not being visible to the human eye. If a true representation of ALL people are included at the beginning of any project or idea, how different would this world look? What new industries, new art, and world-changing inventions would individuals and communities dream up, that could transform lives and living conditions?”
As millions of businesses look for ways to successfully navigate Covid-19, insight like this could make all the difference to your brand.
Are virtual events worth it?
Virtual events, including this one, are great for a host of reasons.
If you’ve wanted to attend the B2B Expo before but haven’t been able to get there, either due to location or travel expenses, you can now gain industry expertise from the comfort of your own home. This gives you the chance to start applying what you’ve learnt to your business as soon as the talk is finished, without any disruptions.
What’s more, not being surrounded by a group of people makes it much easier to focus on the important takeaways. In Sophie’s talk, there’s some impressive statistics about businesses who use inclusive marketing, as well as case studies you can compare to your own business. Keep an eye out for actionable tips and tricks.
