    AR managers are failing with consulting firms

    AR managers are failing with consulting firms

    Reflecting the paradoxical position of many clients, Kea’s Analyst Attitude Survey also goes to a wide range of consultants who play similar roles to analysts and are often employed by analyst firms. The responses to the current survey show that consultants are generally much less happy with their relationships with AR teams than analysts are. The paradox is that as […]

    Fersht: some IIAR award-winners “just tick the boxes”

    Some of the firms mentioned by the IIAR’s analyst team awards fall short of excellence. That’s the verdict of several hundred analysts who took our Analyst Attitude Survey, and of the CEO of one of the top analyst firms. Phil Fersht left the comment below on our criticism of the IIAR awards. We thought we’d reprint it together with the […]

    Do the IIAR awards simply reward large firms?

    Do the IIAR awards simply reward large firms?

    The 2016 Institute for Industry Analyst Relations’ awards seem to be rewarding firms for the scale of their analyst relations, rather than their quality. In a blog post on July 6th, the IIAR awarded IBM the status of best analyst relations teams, with Cisco, Dell and HP as runners-up. Together with Microsoft, which outsources much of its analyst relations to […]

AR and analyst gathering in the Silicon Valley on Tuesday, September 15th

Analyst Relations Meet Up

We hope that everybody in the analyst ecosystem has a fun and relaxing summer. To kick off Fall, SageCircle is once again hosting an  AR and analyst Happy Hour.

The gathering will be in Cupertino in the heart of the Silicon Valley. It will be on Tuesday, September 15th, starting at 6 pm PT and going to 7:30 pm. So please drop by after work for some booze and schmooze.

Remember…. We won’t be using this as a sales opportunity for SageCircle and there will not be any formal presentations. Nor is this a meeting of SPAR or IIAR. Rather the purpose is to promote the community around the analyst ecosystem.

If you think you might be showing up for this AR and Analyst Happy Hour, please RSVP so that we can ensure we will have enough drink and finger food on hand. Contact us at 503-636-1500 or “info [at] sagecircle [dot] com”.

Please spread the word to AR, analysts and IT managers.

  2. Would love to make it to the west coast but am in Montreal.Can someone bring a web cam? I am looking for AR job opportunities does anyone know
    where would be a good site to look for opportunities.
    I am less PR and more IT applications guy that moved into AR space I can also speak french,german.

  3. Although this is not related to the gathering referenced above, I wanted to draw your attention to the following blog entry on my friend and former colleague Larry De’Ath. Larry, who passed away suddenly last April, was one of the greats when it came to AR–I know, i worked for him for years and even though i had several years’ experience in AR myself, i was in awe of what Larry could do. This entry provides some insight into Larry’s best practices that i think would be good to share with the SageCircle community. http://blogs.gxs.com/keifers/2009/04/larry-deaths-top-10-best-practices-for-analyst-relations.html
