Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands

Bitumen: The people, performance and passions behind Alberta’s oil sands
Event on 2017-09-11 14:00:00
Please join us for the launch of Peter McKenzie-Brown’s comprehensive history of Alberta’s oil sands, which covers the last three centuries.. Peter’s book is the story of the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. The book speculates about oil sand encounters with the oils sands by Indigenous peoples, but the known story begins in 1715, with Hudson’s Bay Company reports. The cover photo shows the Bitumount oil sands plant, which bravely tried to make an oil sands mine profitable during the Great Depression, when an international cartel kept oil prices artificially low. The focus of the author’s remarks will be the development of Canada’s largest petroleum company. To whet your appetite, please read petroleum historian Earle Gray’s foreword by clicking on this link. Don’t forget to whet your appetite at the September 11th book launch, too. Peter’s other books include Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta (2016, with Robert Bott and Graham Chandler); Barbecues, Booms and Blogs: Fifty Years of Public Relations in Calgary (2008; co-editor and contributor); In Balance: An Account of Alberta’s CA Profession (2000, with Stacy Phillips); The Richness of Discovery: Amoco’s First Fifty Years in Canada (1998); and The Great Oil Age: The Petroleum Industry in Canada (1993, with Gordon Jaremko and David Finch.)

10 Guaranteed Ways To Boost Social Performance (or your money back*)

10 Guaranteed Ways To Boost Social Performance (or your money back*)
Event on 2015-11-04 11:30:00
10 Guaranteed Ways To Boost Social Performance (or your money back*) There is a lot of talk from a lot of "social gurus" but I don't know of any who are willing to put their own wallet up to back their words. That's why this is a 100% money back (minus any bank fees from your credit card) offer. The workshop lasts 1 hour and you will leave with the outline of the process either printed or digital as a PDF. You have 30 days (ends Dec. 4, 2015) to follow the steps and if there is no boost in your social reach, you will get your money back. Fair enough? Oh, there's a flip side too. If you follow the steps you WILL have improved performance from your social media accounts. All of the steps can be completed in just a few minutes per day. None of the steps have any cost associated with them (you *can* spend money but it's not a requirement). It doesn't matter what industry you're in or what your goals are because this workshop can be adapted to any industry and continuously expanded to fill even a large campaign for thousands of actions. Things we'll talk about in the workshop (and you will have homework to do) –  1. Finding your audience – knowing where they are, what time they are active, and even what they are talking about. You'll get links to free tools to use to help you accomplish this goal plus techniques to find information the tools won't give you. 2. Capitalizing on hot topics – without looking like an attention hound. First you'll learn how to discover hot topics then how to incorporate them into your campaigns. WARNING: Not every hot topic has a place in campaigns. Tragedy, for example, is generally out out out! 3. Building your list – you'll get tips on building your contact list that have worked for years and still work today! This alone is worth more than the price of the workshop and if you pull it off it will pay pay pay and pay! 4. Converting conversations to transactions – let's face it, posting to social media costs time and resources. Someone clicking the "Buy Now" button pays the bills. Learn how to manage and generate transactional intent. 5. Tracking results from individual actions – some actions are obvious like a like, share, retweet, etc. But what about how many people clicked on a link to get back to your "money maker"? You do have a website that actually sells things or accepts conversation, right? Please say yes – because if you say no this class may be too…. never mind. Come on, let's learn! 6. A list of over 100 current, free tools to do all kinds of things to help your online marketing for free. 7. How to focus on doing what matters and separate those tasks from things that just waste time and resources. 8. Creating powerful and easy to understand reports to help visualize social reach and performance. 9. And the proverbial "much more!" REMINDERS — BRING your laptop (and charger) unless you're really good at working on a tablet/mobile device. Also, bring paper and something to write with because some of the lesson portion will be old school. We will allow a few minutes after the workshop for Q&A and if you have more questions or need more coaching we can make that available to you as well. Seating is LIMITED so reserve your space now. We start immediately so be sure to get there early.  We're looking forward to seeing you there!

interRel Becomes Oracle Specialized Partner in Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service (EPRCS)

interRel Consulting has attained Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Specialization for Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service (EPRCS). Oracle awards partners the EPRCS Specialization status based on achieving expertise in delivering services specifically focused on EPRCS through competency development, business results, and proven success. interRel, an OPN Specialized Platinum Partner since 2010, is proud to be recognized as the worlds first Oracle partner to have five Oracle EPRCS Specialists: Courtney Foster, Rich Magee, Jason Novikoff, Kenneth Staudt, and Marc Weinzimmer.

As a purpose-built cloud offering for narrative-driven management reporting and financial performance reporting, EPRCS combines system-of-record data from enterprise systems with commentary and insights authored by business users. EPRCS also provides a secure, collaborative and process driven approach to define, author, review, and publish report packages for internal and external stakeholders.

Al Marciante, Oracle Sr. Director of Product Management, said, Oracle’s recently released Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud Service is our first cloud only offering in the Enterprise Performance Management suite. EPRCS uniquely meets customers challenges and is purpose-built for management and narrative reporting.

Marciante continued, “Equally exciting for us is to have interRel Consulting, a repeat Oracle Titan Award winner and well respected Oracle partner, be among the first North America partners to become specialized on this new cloud service. interRel’s years of experience, focus and specialization will benefit customers looking to streamline and optimize their narrative reporting processes.

Edward Roske, CEO of interRel, said, “What I love about this product is that it’s the first Oracle EPM product designed specifically for the cloud; it doesn’t exist as an on-premise solution. We are passionate about these new products and we see great things for EPRCS and Oracle’s other cloud offerings going forward. As more of our clients look for quicker, easier-to-deploy solutions, we will continue to be at the forefront of Oracle’s cloud-based products.”
