Testimonials for Iggy Pintado

"In late 1998, I was given the herculean task of transforming IBM’s separate and unconnected marketing functions into a higher-performing, integrated unit with clear disciplines and career paths, across 14 countries including over 700 people. Quite simply, I would never have been to accomplish this successfully without the help, advice, creativity, drive and intelligence of Iggy Pintado. Iggy, as my marketing operations executive, excelled in this position, serving in many roles and essentially doing whatever was needed to get the job done on an extremely limited timetable, yet in an exceptionally professional and thorough way. Iggy was alternately project manager, negotiator, spokesman, strategist, sounding board and creative thinker. He set aggressive goals and stayed deeply involved in achieving them, coaching the many country teams along the way. As essentially a two-person team tasked to get this huge job completed, I could think of no one better than Iggy, with his unique set of skills, to have as a partner in this or any other initiative. Iggy is one of the most insightful, dedicated, reliable, capable and versatile executives I have worked with.” 
Ron Greenberg, VP, Marketing, IBM Asia Pacific, 1997-2000

“I had the good fortune and delight of working for Iggy while I was the Sponsorship Manager at IBM. Iggy was brilliant at providing his teams with clearly articulated business direction and empowering them to deliver. He inspired such enthusiasm, passion and creativity in people and made every team member feel they had a valuable contribution to make . I achieved more than I believed was possible under his leadership and always felt encouraged to keep pushing the envelope. Iggy’s style epitomises great leadership and something I continue to learn from and aspire to.”
 
Cathy Hattersley, Marketing & Sponsorship Manager, IBM, 2000-2005

"Iggy is an outstanding marketer and thinker, but even more so he is a genuinely nice guy. I first met Iggy when he was a customer of mine, and we have since formed a professional friendship that I value highly. His ability to think beyond the obvious is an amazing asset. I would best describe Iggy as a true innovator in Australian marketing and customer advocacy."
David Williams, Advertising Director, The Australian

Speaking Topics Include

The Connected Business
Recent economic uncertainty has forced businesses to go back to basics and focus on their lifeblood, their customers. Business owners are now finding ways to stay relevant to their business stakeholders through various communication techniques, with ever-decreasing resources and expense budgets. With the mass adoption of social media and online networking tools such as Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter, there is an opportunity for business owners to learn more about - and connect directly with - their most valuable asset base - their customers.

Using Social Media to Generate Business
The question on every business person's lips  'how to extract commercial value from being on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in a practical and manageable way'

The Business of Technology
The next generation of information technology and communications will be about two major business dynamics: convergence and connection. Technologies such as mobile, wireless and cloud computing will converge to provide businesses with increased flexibility and productivity. It will also enable greater connectivity to information, experiences and transactions with customers, prospects and suppliers at an instant and global level to expand the scope and range of business opportunities.

Effective Networking Online - The Social Networking Opportunity
The old adage of "not what you know but who you know" has made a big comeback. Recent employment uncertainty due to the financial crisis has made business people re-visit the importance of having a network to call upon for assistance if required. The proliferation and adoption of social networks such as Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter has facilitated the ability to build and manage professional networks online. There now exists an opportunity for business people to create and nurture personal and commercial opportunities from these networks.
