The interview series, which features a different specialist from various business areas, was created to help business leaders expand their circle of influence by tapping into expert input on topics relevant to business success. The Circle fosters 360 degree discussion on each topic, empowering readers to leave comments, offer additional insights, discuss alternative viewpoints, share new ideas and ask questions of the featured experts. Visitors are also encouraged to request topics they would like covered by The Circle experts.
“The Circle provides a forum for B2B decision makers to learn, discuss and debate strategic business issues with leading figures in the U.S.,” said Steve McAbee, president of Wunderkind Public Relations. “It is about bringing people from B2B enterprises together to share ideas and insight to help others expand their own inner circle through access to timely and relevant information from the experts.”
The first expert featured in The Circle is nationally-recognized executive presentation skills consultant, David Dempsey, JD, president & CEO of Neon Zebra, LLC., and author of two critically-acclaimed books, Better to BEST: How to Speak for Extraordinary Results . . . Every Time! (2006) and Legally Speaking: 40 Powerful Presentation Principles Lawyers Need to Know (2009). A former trial attorney, university professor, and award-winning professional speaker, Dempsey’s expertise is speechwriting and coaching C-level and senior executives at Fortune 500 companies. His clients include UPS, Dell, Porsche, Siemens, The Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, Flowers Foods, Kaplan Corporation, and Infor, among others. Dempsey offers insight and tips that will help any B2B executive captivate an audience and attain exceptional results by using compelling stories, crisp language, and dynamic delivery. In his recent article, “Straight Talk,” in CEO magazine, Dempsey offered six strategic tips for effective speaking; he shares additional tips exclusively with readers of The Circle.
The launch of The Circle also features interviews with Chris Chiappinelli, editor of ManagingAutomation.com, and Gary Mintchell, editor of Automation World, who share their thoughts on the state of trade journalism today and the integration of social and traditional media. Social media, including the use of blogs, wikis, discussion forums, and networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, enables people to share information and ideas with one another, and has become increasingly important in marketing for B2B companies. According to Forrester Research, 73 percent of information technology decision makers are influenced by social media.
