Contagious Content: The Value of Going Viral

Do you ever wonder why some trends last while others fade away? We often think of traditional advertising methods—social media, TV, print, and the like—as the only way to catapult a product’s popularity. But it turns out word-of-mouth transmission is actually ten times more effective. Join sought-after marketing guru Jonah Berger, Wharton professor and author of Contagious – Why Things Catch On, as he combines groundbreaking research with popular stories to fuel your marketing campaign so that it catches fire.

Speaker: Jonah Berger, Ph.D., Author, Marketing Professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

Beyond the Hashtags – Creating a New Normal

Interactive Online Course

The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements awakened a sleeping giant and ignited a global campaign on the obstacles – both blatant and unconscious – women encounter routinely in their professional lives. More than a year since the most visible outcry began, the movement continues to galvanize both women and men who seek solutions to collectively strive for awareness and equity. So, what’s next? Through a panel of experts and WICT President & CEO, Maria Brennan, will explore ideas, insights and strategies to shift the dialog from what was to what can be. In this forward-facing discussion, panelists will use their experiences to help move companies and their people from hardships and hurdles to education and resolutions as we look beyond the hashtags and step into a new normal.

Moderator: Maria E. Brennan, CAE, President & CEO, WICT
Susan Chira, Senior Correspondent & Editor, Gender Issues, The New York Times
Fernanda Merodio, Senior Director, Distribution, Hemisphere Media Group
Alyssa Milano, Actor, Activist, Producer

Win the Room: An Insider’s Guide to Confident and Compelling Communication

Interactive Online Course

Audiences crave authentic, bold communication. All too often, however, public speakers come across as rigid and canned, failing to keep their audiences engaged. We’ve all been on the receiving end of a presentation gone awry and can spot the telltale signs of a disconnected audience: reduced eye contact, fidgeting, checking cell phones. In this dynamic session, you will learn proven concepts to help reduce anxiety and bolster your confidence to keep the audience focused squarely on you and your message.

Profiles of Champions

From the 2018 WICT Leadership Conference

Recorded Session

Top professional athletes don’t come up with excuses—they come up with solutions. True champions are distinguished by how they overcome adversity to reach their goals, adopting skills of resilience, perseverance and teamwork along the way. These key attributes are very valuable in the workplace, and our panel’s winning principles can be applied both on the field and in a corporate setting. This encore panel discussion returns to explore the commonalities between high-performing athletes and high-performing executives. Let these top players be your “corporate coaches” by learning from their personal stories of trials and triumphs as you create your own unbeatable strategy.

Moderator: Molly Qerim Rose, Host, First Talk, ESPN
Scout Bassett, World Championship Medalist & Athlete, US Paralympic Team
Misty Copeland, Principal Dancer, American Ballet Theatre
Sarah Kustok, Brooklyn Nets Game Analyst, YES Network, FOX Sports
