Digital Marketing — Tools and Methodologies
Joint presentation IEEE Ottawa Section Consultants Network and IET Ottawa LN
Not your Grandmother’s Marketing – The impact of SaaS and AI
Since Google’s arrival on the scene in the late 1990’s,
marketing took a turn to digital, never to look back again. With the proliferation of technologies such
as Artificial Intelligence, and novel business models like
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), marketing tools and techniques continue to
rapidly evolve. Our eyes glued to
screens of devices of all sizes, we are at the same time a willing victim and a
reluctant participant in the marketing dance in both our professional and
personal lives. These combined bring a
huge democratization of marketing for businesses, allowing for successful
growth in the most unlikely locations.

Technological Stewardship is a new concept intended to focus on the promise of technology to create a better future for society today and avoid the negative consequences. While Technologies have the promise to address key issues and create a better future, new developments often amplify inequities and create new kinds of risk. What does this mean for how to move
Through this interactive 2-hour workshop, you will learn about Technological Stewardship and develop your ability to ensure technology makes the world a better place for all. You will also be introduced to a powerful tool for practically integrating these concepts into the product design/development process.
Mark Abbott is the Executive Director of the Engineering Change Lab, which serves as a catalyst for evolving the engineering community to reach its full potential as stewards of technology for the benefit of humanity. Over the past 5 years, over 125 organizations and 350+ individual leaders (CEOs, VPs, Deans, Directors) have collaborated using the Lab’s platform advancing understanding and action to evolve engineering. Previously, Mark served as member of the Executive Team at Engineers without borders for several years.
This interactive workshop is limited to 45 attendees so as to create an optimal interactive and learning environment. This series of workshops is planned to have subsequent workshops taking place in March and April. We are especially interested in professionals willing to tryout the powerful tools and providing feedback on integrating the concepts into the product design / development process.
