Session Title: B Corporations Build A Better Business (Speaker/Subject Matter Expert)

What if you could start a business and at the same time solve the social and environmental issues in your community? Now imagine if you could do that on a global scale. Every individual that is considering starting their own business or any current successful business should have the opportunity to learn about the concept of the B Corporation. If you ask most people, you will find that they are not familiar with the concept. We want to share with attendees the unique opportunity to redefine success in business. As the first certified B Corp in Southwest Ohio, Ingage Partners will share with the audience the benefits of a B Corp model. We will walk them through the process of obtaining the B Corp certification. An organization must meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We will recreate this certification process with the audience in a virtual 20 minute B-Impact Assessment. In addition we will provide each attendees with “The B Corp Handbook” to take home. This handbook continues to builds on the topic of using business as a force for good. In closing, we will roll out to our audience our latest B-Corp venture, Thrive. Thrive is a local start-up pioneering an Urban Impact Sourcing business model in Cincinnati. Thrive is working to reshape the socioeconomic trajectory of Cincinnati’s most disadvantaged populations living in poverty by providing sustainable careers in the field of IT. Thrive is a For-Profit organization being used as a force for good. Thrive is a B-Corp!

We will be providing grab-n-go sandwiches and drinks at the conclusion of the session, so attendees will not leave hungry!

Session Title: Growing Pains: Don’t let growth threaten your culture of innovation (Speaker/Subject Matter Expert)

We all know the importance of a positive, collaborative environment when it comes to fostering innovation. But how do you scale that culture as you experience rapid growth? As many leaders attest, creating and sustaining a culture of innovation is an elusive and challenging goal. This session is designed to help you start a dialogue with your teams around three key areas that influence a culture of innovation - Fostering Creativity, Creating Connectedness, and Incubating Ideas. TiER1 created these three principles based on research and experience to be more intentional about unleashing our own culture of innovation. You will learn the science behind these principles, see examples of how TiER1 brings them to life, discuss how other organizations model these principles, and evaluate your team/organization's culture of innovation using a tool that will help identify 1-3 strengths to build from and barriers to address.

Light fare to be provided by Cincinnati’s, Gomez Salsa.

Session Title: Harnessing the Power of Social Media for Better Content Marketing (Workshop)

Content presented as slideshow or list is a tested and proven way to better capture and keep audience attention. Slideshows and lists provide visitors easier reading experiences and better manage their time expectations. They also deliver deeper engagement and leave users with better message recall.

Everyday 70 million photos are posted to Instagram, 500 million tweets are published to Twitter and 72 million links are shared on Facebook. 

Web publishers and brand marketers know that slideshows and lists need to evolve past being simple image galleries. The want to leverage social content, but lack essential tools to easily do so in a distributable format that also help meet business goals.

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how Stackerdecks makes it dead simple for website publishers and marketers to build embeddable slideshows and lists made from content found anywhere on social media or the web.
