The RISE digital programme offers a monthly dose of ISE which, given the current global situation, could not have launched at a better time. The programme includes virtual events plus online editorial content including a collection of interviews called RISE Culture, which link to the monthly theme but also touch on cultural issues such as inclusion. The Big Read is an in-depth feature article, authored by an industry expert, which takes a deep dive into the theme. This content is live at www.iseurope.org and featured within the RISE Connect newsletter.
RISE Spotlight events, produced in partnership with TNW and supported by ISE co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA, are hosted on virtual event platform Hopin and have been designed to encourage industry engagement through compelling speaker sessions, a live audience Q&A chat function and networking opportunities.
The first two-hour Spotlight event attracted an international audience from 60 countries. It included an opening keynote with John Egan, CEO of L’Atelier, a Reporter Roundtable panel discussion, an ‘On the Sofa with ISE’ interview with Marit Janssen of ABN AMRO, Startup Nation business showcase and Watercooler Virtual Meets networking. It was hosted by Callum Booth, a TNW Editor.
AVIXA and CEDIA both contributed expertise to the programme. Sean Wargo, Senior Director of Market Intelligence, presented AVIXA Insights into the unified communications and collaboration market. CEDIA’s Ed Wenck (Content Director) and Walt Zerbe (Senior Director of Technology and Standards) hosted a networking session about optimising technology in the work-from-home environment, while Wargo’s networking session discussed preparing for next-level collaborative working.
All the sessions, including the opening keynote, Reporter Roundtable, On the Sofa and Startup Nation are available to watch on demand at www.iseurope.org/content-hub/rise-connect-workspace-evolution/
