theSOURCE: December 2014 issue


We can’t quite believe that the year has gone so quickly! Helping more clients than ever before to engage with their customers, prospects and channel partners, has meant this year has flown by! Over the course of 2014, we’ve welcomed five new members to the OE fold, Susi Golding, Marie Bouilhet and Scarlett Carroll to the burgeoning events team, Sam Patel joined our accounts department and Sophie Grant has come back to the fold working with registration, data and analytics.

What’s more 2015 is looking even more exciting with the diary booking up for the first half of the year. In fact, January sees Milan welcome Cisco Live EMEA for the second year. With seven of our clients exhibiting, Directors Alex and Denise will be there too, keeping up with the latest market trends and spending time with our customers.

In this issue we’ll also look at virtual sales kick-offs; how to make them engaging and valuable to your team, whilst saving on costs.

And there’s also great, insider tips on a restaurant in Budapest, an historical hotel in Brussels, and this month our spotlight shines on the cosmopolitan capital city of Sweden, Stockholm.

How engaging is your Virtual Sales Kick-Off?

Face to face meetings and events are essential to day to day business. We would say that, obviously, but when 90% of

communication is non-verbal, via facial expressions, gestures and emotion, it stands to reason that a meeting room full of people
will create more energy and engagement than one person and a device on
their own. So when virtual meetings are unavoidable, how do you ensure
that it’s full of energy and that your sales team remains fully engaged
and can continue to benefit from the meeting throughout the course of
the year?

We have a few suggestions
Cisco Live EMEA 2015

Cisco Live is Cisco’s premier education and training destination for IT professionals worldwide and it arrives in Milan for the second year from 26th to 30th January 2015. There’ll be more than 400 sessions and keynotes, an exhibition with over 90 of Cisco’s partners, training zones and tech labs and plenty of opportunities to network!

We’ll be there supporting SevOne in the World of Solutions Exhibition, if you’re going too, we’d love to meet you!
