Women in Tech Peer-2-Peer #22

WomenInTech Peer2PeerSeptember 27, 2016  |  7 pm  |  The Ivy, 3330 South Service Road, Burlington

Topic: What it Takes

Inspired by the Canadian women rocking the RIO Summer Olympics and the amazing #WhatItTakes campaign from SportChek (Check out the videos here) we are bringing in mentors and coaches to take the limits off of our beliefs and dare greatly in our careers and with our businesses.

This month we are excited to have Carol Schulte, a professional speaker, trainer and certified coach who has worked with audiences in the U.S., Germany, and Canada over the better part of a decade bring us a workshop.

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.

About the Presenter:

Carol Schulte holds a BFA in Theatre Performance, an MA in Communication, and two postgraduate certificates in coaching and mentoring.   She is on a mission to empower people to live BIG lives (how many folks can say they’ve lived in an Ashram, shaved their head - and raised $10,000 to boot - or bungee jumped in their birthday suit?!?) no matter what life throws at them. She is the creator of ‘Spark your G.E.N.I.U.S.’ and the initiative ‘Women Living BIG’, and is committed to getting you OUT of your comfort zone so you can excel in your career, start and grow your own businesses, and achieve what you never thought possible.
 
She has lived, worked and/or volunteered in Thailand, India, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, the US, the UK, visited 30 countries and counting, and brings a unique and global perspective to all she does. Passionate about many things, Carol is also a volunteer bereavement facilitator and camp counselor, marathon runner, and yoga instructor.

From Social Media Likes to In-store Dollars

Most people will tell you that “Likes” on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.) are important to your business. But have you ever wondered how those social media likes are actually turning into dollars for your offline business? 

Hyllo is the first predictive analytics platform to answer the oldest and most important marketing question for modern brick-and-mortar businesses: What is the in-store ROI of my online media? 

Today, marketing budgets have dramatically shifted to email, social, web & apps (online channels) with no frictionless way to measure in-store visits & sales (offline conversion). Our online-to-offline conversion tracking platform uses machine learning to give businesses of every size the ability to measure and improve the ROI of their online media. 

Only 37% of CMO’s can justify their marketing budgets quantitatively. Don’t let the success of your business be a mystery; measure & improve your marketing ROI with Hyllo retail analytics and marketing analytics.
