Who Are the New Leaders of BtoB

first_imgABM announced that it has signed up a record number of new members (although—and I say this in all sincerity—that’s what ABM CEO Gordon Hughes has said every year for at least the last six or seven).A Transition from the Old Guard At the same time, though, it was a meeting that reflected an industry—and an association—in transition. In the old days, that Tuesday night dinner was the highlight, with everyone in black tie and everyone still there. In the old days there would have been a live band (sometimes a big-name band), not a DJ. In the old days, all the big players in the association were CEOs and owners of their own print publishing companies. That’s not true anymore, but it’s unclear who the new leaders are. Is it the private-equity firms? The online-only publishers? The “Web-first” companies? The suppliers? The answer is probably all of the above, but a lot of the private-equity firms that were so anxious to get into this business four or five years ago are now bruised by bad media-industry investments and unfavorable lending terms, making them an unlikely prospect for association leadership—even though they’re a stated target for association expansion. And the new guard leaves out the core print-centric b-to-b publishers that form ABM’s base and dominate its board of directors. But some of the most prominent companies are struggling through a recession in the overall economy and a life-threatening decline in print b-to-b media.In fact, board member John French of Penton Media registered, but was apparently not at the meeting. Nor was Tad Smith, CEO of Reed Business Information. Or United Business Media’s Scott Mozarsky, although TechWeb CEO Tony Uphoff (a non-board member) was there. Other board members not at the meeting were Randall Reilly’s Mike Reilly and Ziff Davis Media’s Jason Young.Maybe they didn’t miss all that much, as one publisher said at Tuesday evening’s dinner, “There wasn’t one word about how to successfully run a print publishing business in the last three days.”Some of those companies have been in the news lately for layoffs, freezes, bankruptcy—or, in the case of Reed, being on the block.FOLIO:’s Spring Meeting Coverage:Nielsen’s New Corporate Values: ‘Integrated, Open, Simple’The New Must-Have Skills for B-to-B Media: Project ManagementPublishers on Redefining the Role of PrintHanley Wood Moving Toward Becoming a ‘Web-First Company’ LA QUINTA, California—American Business Media’s Spring Meeting 2008 concluded with the usual fanfare Tuesday night, including a dinner dance and golf awards to a group of perhaps just more than 100 remaining attendees. The dinner ran the curtain (an environmentally-friendly curtain to match the “green theme” of much of the conference) down on an event that was successful on several levels. The content (especially on the second day, but also presentations on the first full day by Nielsen CEO David Calhoun and IBM vice president of marketing Edward Abrams) was strong. Sessions on events, on the industry’s new financial owners, and from the CEO perspective, provided real value, if not a lot of audience interaction.The turnout seemed strong, with 290 attendees (including spouses) on the pre-event attendee list. Both the outgoing chairman, Frank Anton, and the incoming chairman, Gary Fitzgerald, gave insightful and inspiring opening presentations.last_img read more

TOWN MODERATOR CANDIDATES DEBATE Peterson MacDonald Debate The Issues with VIDEO

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Town Moderator Rob Peterson and challenger Kevin MacDonald recently took part in a debate as part of the WCTV and Chamber of Commerce’s Candidates Night. Below are some highlights:Opening Statements“I’ve overseen the last three Annual Town Meetings, as well as the last Special Town Meeting in December 2017,” said Town Moderator Rob Peterson. “I’ve presided over these meetings in a fair and impartial manner, allowing free discussion to occur within the rules established prior to commencement of each meeting… I’ve also shown the ability to manage those whose attendance at Town Meeting is driven by an agenda that is contrary to the operation of an orderly Town Meeting.”“I believe we deserve a Town Moderator that respects [us] and has an understanding of the procedures and rules of the Town Meeting,” said challenger Kevin MacDonald. “As your moderator, I pledge to serve all the Town Meeting voters and the whole community as a non-partisan, non-advocate, and non-biased meeting leader.”Can You Remain Neutral On Issues At & Outside Town Meeting?“I think it’s abundantly clear – based on the track records of the two candidates here tonight — that one of us is able to remain neutral on matters that may or may not come before Town Meeting, whether asked in an assembly or otherwise, while the other – as recent as the Town Warrant Meeting – has spoke to articles that he hopes to preside over as Town Moderator,” said Peterson. “My opponent has shown an inability of the past 20+ years to so act impartially, such as on the floor of Town Meeting, where he’s called to order, and often doesn’t heed those orders…”“A moderator must remain neutral in order to perform his duties, however, the Town Moderator is a registered voter and has the right to vote at Town Meeting as precedent has been set in the event of a tie,” said MacDonald. “[I would] absolutely able to remain neutral in terms of running the meeting, and procedurally, and having all the rules followed, but – in terms of voting – he certainly has the right to vote.”Key Characteristics That Are Vital To Running An Efficient Town Meeting?“The top character quality is honesty,” said MacDonald. “One of the problems I see with Town Meeting is that the people of Wilmington, who work hard to pay their taxes, are presented with budgets that are fraudulent.” MacDonald claims that over-budgeting and “lying, cheating and deceiving” has led to the town’s existing free cash balance.“The Town Moderator precedes over and regulates the proceedings of Town Meeting. His job is to remain fair, impartial, and make sure the rules (town inhabitant bylaws, Robert Rules of Order, and Massachusetts General Laws) are adhered to during the entirety of the meeting,” said Peterson. “Enforcing those rules is the the way you effectuate a fair, transparent, efficient, and orderly Town Meeting.”How Do You Keep Emotional Speakers On Topic While Remaining Fair & Respectful?Peterson pointed to his performance at December’s Special Town Meeting, which dealt with the very contentious issue of detox facilities, as an example of how he was able to keep speakers on topic while allowing folks on both sides to express their feelings and bring pertinent information to the deliberation.“I don’t have a problem with someone being emotional or passionate about an issue,” said MacDonald. “A moderator’s job is to keep the meeting in order and on point, but there has to be a little bit of flexibility… Sometimes you have to refer to an issue that is not directly what we’re talking about to make a point.”At What Point Should Someone Be Removed From Town Meeting?“I think it’s pretty clear. Massachusetts General Law states that when a speaker is called to order, they should heed that call to order. If they do not, then – and only then – should the Town Moderator take the necessary steps to remove that person from Town Meeting,” said Peterson. “It’s been my purview throughout my entire term to give someone the benefit of the doubt – one, two, three, sometimes four times. It’s the repetitive disobeying of the rules, disrupting the meeting, talking over speakers, calling people by name.. at that point, the rest of the people have a right to a fair and impartial meeting…”“If a person is a disorderly topic, off topic, and fails to heed the warnings of the moderator, he absolutely can get called to order. If he repeatedly disobeys the moderator, he can be removed from the meeting,” said MacDonald. How Would You Increase Attendance & Participation At Town Meeting? Are There Any Technological Advancements You’d Like To See Incorporated Into Town Meeting?“I would model the Town Meeting after a baseball game with an on deck circle, having some coordination with the poll workers and not make people have to stand in line for a long time,” said MacDonald. “When you look at our State Legislature and Congress, they have electronic equipment to make their votes. It would be nice to cast your vote electronically so it got registered up on a screen.”“When I was elected back in 2015, I had a discussion with town officials about what we could do in the immediate to make Town Meeting a better process. That brought forward the electronic display behind the Town Moderator,” said Peterson. “I’m having continued discussions with Town Manager Hull relative to some sort of online portal relative to questions on specific warrant articles. There are surrounding towns that do this. I’d like to see that down the road. Not quire there yet regarding electronic voting. I prefer the standing vote and voice vote. Not completely opposed to it, however, and if a proposal was brought forth by town officials, I’d certainly entertain it.”“Town Meeting has to become a more efficient process,” continued Peterson. “A lot of people are thwarted to coming to our Town Meetings because we have individuals who continually to seek to speak on subject matters they’ve already spoken to, and talk about things outside the scope of the article.”Town Moderator Serves On A 3-Person Appointing Committee For Finance Committee Members. What Qualities Would You Look For In A Finance Committee Member?“The number quality has to be honesty,” said MacDonald. “What I’m seeing right now with the current Finance Committee is a lack of intellect… You have to have people who have a clue.”“I think our Finance Committee does an exemplary job,” said Peterson. “We have to continue to seek qualified individuals to appointment to our Finance Committee… We have to find a cross section of our community is the only way to effectuate a solid, well-represented Finance Committee that can form the best budget for our town.”Closing Statements“I’m the only candidate in the race who is running to genuinely effectuate an orderly, fair, transparent and efficient town meeting process,” said Peterson. “To be Town Moderator requires poise and the ability to remain calm… An effective Town Moderator is impartial and devoid of overt emotion on a given issue. Anyone who has been to a past Town Meeting knows that I’m the only candidate in this race capable of maintaining my pose, staying calm in the face of disagreement and carrying myself as to foster respectful conversation and debate.”“I pledge to encourage and promote widespread participation in debating the issues at Town Meeting,” said MacDonald. “I pledge to make you feel welcome to get up and speak and offer your perspective and ideas that are germane to the article at hand. You will no longer be talked to in a condescending, disrespectful manner.”MacDonald later alleged that Peterson had a conflict of interest by being Town Moderator and working for a law firm in town that sometimes goes in front of town boards.“There is no conflict of interest. There has been no conflict of interest. There will be no conflict of interest,” responded Peterson. “I took this job as a financial determinant to my office, myself, to my wife, to my 9-month old child, to my father, to my brother in college, to everyone else. There is no conflict of interest whatsoever.”When running three years ago, Peterson pledged that his firm would not represent any clients in matters that would have to come in front of Town Meeting. He has honored that pledge.Watch the 30-minute debate, courtesy of Wilmington Community Television, below:—Video Playerhttps://objects-us-west-1.dream.io/wilmington/7/d/4/2/d/0/7d42d05e-c7ff-4841-a98b-12a053df4a461523462232.151%2B28244931.194%40castus4-wilmington%2B15234671811523466010338211.vod.720p.Candidates%20Night_%20Moderator%20Debate%20-%20April%2010th%2C%202018.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.—Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Houston Experts Categorize Trumps Order On Immigration As Historic And An Overreaction

first_img Share Listen 00:00 /01:11 Laura IsenseeIn downtown Houston on Sunday more than a thousand people gathered just steps away from the Super Bowl festivities.Many Houstonians are still reacting to President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.Downtown Houston and Bush Intercontinental Airport were some of the scenes for protests over the measure this past weekend.Brandon Rottinghaus, a professor of political science at the University of Houston, says that “in terms of immigration authority, this is definitely one for the ages, it’s definitely something that ranks high in the list of major changes.”Trump has argued his measure is similar to what former President Barack Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.However, Obama Administration officials say there was no such ban because the measures didn’t prohibit entry to the United States.Rather, they imposed additional checks on applications from Iraqis.The Obama Administration took that measure after an investigation revealed that an Iraqi man who had been granted asylum in the U.S. had made improvised roadside bombs in Iraq.Charles Foster, a veteran immigration attorney who has practiced law for more than 40 years, categorizes the President’s executive order as “unprecedented because it’s an overreaction, a greater reaction than what President George W. Bush did immediately after 9/11.”After the attacks, Bush created the Department of Homeland Security, but he didn’t restrict the entry of foreigners based on their nationality.Foster, who leads the firm Foster LLP, adds the measure can significantly impact Houston because of its international workforce and particularly because many companies based in our city work in the energy sector.The executive order bans the entry of nationals from some countries involved in the oil business, such as Iraq and Yemen, and Foster explains that “it’s not unusual, if you’re doing business in those countries, to hire nationals from those countries, to have them on your staff here and have them going back and forth.” X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more

The World of Big Data Is Now Open to Small Companies

first_imgOctober 7, 2014 Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals When you think of business intelligence, do you think about huge multinational companies tracking millions of rows of sales and revenue data? Or do you think about that small mom and pop deli down the street, keeping track of which menu items are selling best on a certain day? In the past, the business-intelligence industry was built to primarily serve large firms that could afford a full suite of software and teams of number-crunching analysts. But in the last decade, the industry has evolved, technology has improved and software has become more lightweight and powerful. The results are business-intelligence solutions that are more accessible to small and medium-size firms. Here are some pointers for small and medium-size businesses seeking ways to become more data driven:Related: Don’t Drive Your Business Without Data1. Seek a solution that can turn anyone into a data analyst.Increasingly, good business-intelligence tools are being created that bring high-powered, in-depth analytics capabilities to the layperson. This data democratization lets anyone see, explore and ask questions of the information. For small businesses where one person wears many hats, it’s about making data analytics easy enough to fit into his or her job. Historically, and to a degree today, these tools have required some programming knowledge to use, serving as a barrier to their adoption by small businesses. It’s not realistic to ask all entrepreneurs or small business owners to learn to code. They are, after all, worrying about attending tocustomers, managing staff and fixing the cash register.Advancements in the power of business-intelligence software have made a huge difference. The best business intelligence solutions for small businesses are usually those that do not require any coding knowledge for building dashboards and exploring data. Find a business solution that has analytical functions and best practices built in, so that you can spend your time examining the data that matters. 2. Speedy analysis is critical.With the old model of business intelligence, companies often relied on IT teams to crunch data and generate reports. Coupled with slower, less-powerful software, this meant that the data analytics process could take weeks. This is no longer the case.Take marketing strategy firm Audience Audit, which conducts in-depth market research and delivers reports to customers. Like many small businesses, its owner, Susan Baier, performs many roles, from researcher and analyst to presenter. Baier turned to my company, Tableau Software, for data-visualization software and it completely changed the way she ran her business. Because Baier can now analyze the data she gathers quickly and easily, Audience Audit has lowered its fees two-thirds, reduced project timelines 50 percent and freed up her time to work on other tasks. Related: How Small Businesses Can Embrace Big Data3. Get visual.The human brain is wired to process information visually, making visualization one of the best ways to explore and understand data, particularly when presenting data to customers, investors or other stakeholders.Find a solution that makes visualizations simple and that has best design practices built in so that you can focus on your data instead of formatting a chart or selecting a color for a trend line. 4. Rely on the cloud but not exclusively.Small-business owners should seek out a solution that’s flexible, letting them work in the cloud and with data on premises or a combination of the two. Working in the cloud has major benefits for small businesses: There is less infrastructure to deploy, accessibility is near universal and the security is top-notch. Yet at other times, an on-premises solution may make more sense.Look for a solution that doesn’t restrict you from relying fully on cloud computing and that also allows for storing data on premises. Many businesses pursue a hybrid of a cloud and on-premises setup to support a variety of needs. Small businesses need to make data-driven decisions all the time and the solution should be flexible enough to allow that. Big data is all the buzz now but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s is only for big business. Often data-driven insights can have a great impact at smaller companies.Related: How Big Data Helps Us Keep Pace (Infographic) 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Israel to be a Jewish state" Acquired and published by The Daily Beast the recording prompted condemnations from across the US political spectrum Republican Senator Ted Cruz even called on the Secretary of State to resign In his statement Kerry emphasized that he has shown his support for Israel not only verbally but also "when it came time to vote and when it came time to fight" He pointed out that former Israeli Prime Ministers and the current Justice Minister have "all invoked the specter of apartheid to underscore the dangers of a unitary state for the future" but he added that "it is a word best left out of the debate here at home" Kerry added that the word may have created a "misimpression" and said that he does "not believe nor have I ever stated publicly or privately that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one Anyone who knows anything about me knows that without a shred of doubt" Contact us at editors@timecomHere’s an SAT-level analogy question: Is Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court to the marriage equality movement what Alabama Governor George Wallace was to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s The comparison is an easy one to make and numerous outlets drew the connection on Monday in the aftermath of Moore’s attempt to halt same-sex marriages in his state Facing integration of the University of Alabama in 1963 which had been mandated years earlier by Brown v Board of Education Wallace tried to block the change and was met by National Guard troops This week Moore defied a federal District Court ruling by ordering local probate judges not to license same-sex marriages a bold challenge to the established principle of federal supremacy over state courts In short both Wallace and Moore relied on states’ rights claims to defy the federal government’s demand for social change Still while some may see Moore’s last stand as a symbolic stand like Wallace’s historians say the difference in context suggests that Moore is more likely to disappear with a whimper than a bang Wallace was a martyr for a population heavily invested in the status quo Moore is a martyr for a population resigned to change “Wallace was riding the segregation wave at its height” says Dan Carter author of George Wallace biography The Politics of Rage “The fundamental difference is that accepting gays and lesbians and their rights is not nearly as painful I think the gay issue even in the deep South in the most conservative areas its kind of a resigned acceptance” An analysis of demographic and voting data by the New York Times suggests that two-thirds of state residents are likely opposed to the unions But opposition today is not nearly as strong as white southerners’ opposition to civil rights for black Americans was in 1963 Carter says pointing to Southern newspaper coverage In the 1960s few Alabama newspapers would dare publish anything sympathetic to civil rights according to Carter On Monday when same-sex marriages began the state’s largest newspaper said it was an “extraordinary day” And though a conflict between the state and federal governments persists probate judges in some Alabama counties aren’t issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples citing Moore’s guidance it remains unclear how the federal government will respond At this point it seems unlikely that such a response would mirror what happened in the 1960s "Bobby Kennedy was willing to bring in federal marshals willing to nationalize the National Guard in states" says University of Alabama history professor Glenn Feldman referring to the then-Attorney General’s response to Wallace in the 1960s “Im not sure if the federal government today has the political backbone or will to make people respect it” Whether or not the White House ultimately cracks down on wayward Alabama judges it’s hard to imagine that the situation would escalate as it did in 1963 when President John F Kennedy sent in the National Guard to force integration That’s because in all likelihood such measures would probably be unnecessary Some of the judges under Moore’s purview ignored his order and others said they’re waiting for clarification Furthermore Moore only has authority over the state’s judicial employees not the state troopers and others whom Wallace used to fight integration Today conservative Alabama Governor Robert Bentley seems sympathetic to Moore and hasn’t tried to restrict him (He’s said he doesn’t want to “further complicate this issue”) But he also seems likely to comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling "The issue of same sex marriage will be finally decided by the US Supreme Court later this year" he said in a statement "I have great respect for the legal process and the protections that the law provides for our people” For his part President Obama who has addressed the comparison to Wallace also seems to believe that the courts can take care of this issue on their own without the kind of intervention that was necessitated five decades ago “I think that the courts at the federal level will have something to say to him" he told BuzzFeed News about Roy Moore this week So the states’-rights justifications for Wallace and Moore may be the same but historical distinctions mean the resolution to Moore’s defiance is likely to be far less dramatic than Wallace’s was There is one more difference between them however and it suggests that such a resolution may not be the end of Moore’s story: Moore may not be ready to give up even when moving on makes political sense Wallace’s opposition to integration was driven by a political desire to win over his constituents Feldman and Carter note so he changed his views when it was no longer advantageous for him to oppose civil rights Looking at Moore however they see someone whose deeply-held religious beliefs may lead him to push his authority further even as the opinions of those around him evolve “He actually believes this stuff” says Feldman “He actually believes in his heart of hearts that the federal government is not a position to tell states what to do” Silent No More: Early Days in the Fight for Gay Rights
