WisOwners Lunch & Learn: Introduction to Blockchain – February 22, Brookfield, WI

INTRODUCTION TO BLOCKCHAIN
By Dave Rebro

-Have you heard of the “Blockchain”, but wondered what Blockchain is?
-Are you wondering what the difference between the Blockchain technology and the Internet?
-Curious how digital currencies (like Bitcoin) and the Blockchain are related?

You’ll be ahead of the curve if you learn now how the Blockchain will impact you and your business and your life.

Are you ready for Your Beginners Guide to Blockchain?

During our time together, you’ll learn why Blockchain isn’t a fad and how it’ll have wide-reaching implications in every aspect of your life and business.

We are amidst the early stages of a historic transformation which in the near future will impact every aspect of you conducting business!

If we don’t become familiar with Blockchain, at least on a basic level: how it works and its terminology, it will be much more difficult for us to assimilate it into our businesses and lives.

Come join me and other like-minded business owners and professionals who are seeking to understand the purpose of the Blockchain in a fun, interactive, and simple fashion! You’ll walk away with a foundational awareness of the Blockchain technology to advance your life and business.

AI & Voice Assistants: The Future of Marketing – February 22

AI & Voice Assistants: The Future of Marketing
By Nick Myers

-What exactly is AI and how does it work?
-How is voice technology reshaping how brands engage with customers?
-How will voice assistants change the way we search for information and review content?

It is almost impossible to not have heard about how AI and voice assistant tech is/will be changing everything. The way that organizations and businesses communicate and interact with their customers is entering a new paradigm shift. Organizations must be aware and learn how to adapt to these rapid advances in technology to go where their customers will ultimately be going; voice and the internet.

During our time together, I’ll share a variety of things. First, I will cover a high-level overview of what makes AI tick, and how it ultimately is responsible for voice assistant tech. I will also go over some case studies of different organizations that have used voice technology to connect with their customers, and how organizations can expect the way that they interact with their audiences to substantially change.

If you are interested in the future of one-to-one customer engagement, then join us and learn what AI and voice assistant tech will mean for your business.
