ADVISORY...for Tuesday (Sept. 12)
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 5, 2000
Stan Woodward, Vice President of business services with Yahoo!, will discuss how Internet broadcasting can enhance communications and market share for an organization at the Sept. 12 International Association of Business Communicators (Dallas/IABC) luncheon.
To provide broad insight into the Internet and Webcasting, Woodward will focus his discussion on a number of broad topics, including:
-- current effective and non-effective uses of Webcasting -- trends towards the global use of Webcasting -- case studies that demonstrate successful use of the Webcasting platform combined with online/offline marketing and public relations; -- future trends with broadband consumer and business use -- a review of metrics to gauge success for Webcasting -- internal communication opportunities using the Corporate Yahoo! intranet portal.
"The Global business audience is ready for Webcasting," said Woodward. "Companies that exploit and leverage Webcasting stand to gain an immediate mind and market share advantage by implementing now."
"The business communicator is at the center of all of this action as they are the driving force for disseminating information", said Woodward. "Frequent and effective use of audio and video Webcasting tools by the business communicator creates an experience for consumers, clients, and business partners that they not only expect but welcome."
Scott H. Cytron, ABC, president of Dallas/IABC, said, "Online communications as part of a company's or organization's mission is a vital part of today's business marketplace."
"These tasks comprise a specialty for a great number of our members," Cytron said. "Mr. Woodward is an ideal speaker for our group because he will emphasize the increasing role communicators have in ensuring technology and the communications function are truly integrated."
