SIG: B2B Marketing
The B2B Marketing SIG is chaired by Nick Hardy who was elected to the General Council of BASDA in June 2016 and in February 2017 was elected Chair the Marketing Special Interest Group. Nick has extensive experience as a senior strategic marketer in the software development industry and is Marketing Manager at our member company Anagram Systems.
Marketing Interest Group engages with:
Suppliers to the business software industry. It also approaches experts, agencies, suppliers, lecturers and other organisations on behalf of BASDA members. The aim is to share knowledge, understanding and thought leadership on the latest Marketing ideas and hot topics that are applicable in the B2B environment, specifically to the business software industry. A schedule of forthcoming events features on the events calendar.
Aims & Objectives
The B2B Marketing SIG was established to provide BASDA members with marketing ideas, information and updates. Originally set up in the spirit of BASDA to aid the collaboration of business software suppliers in their influence and buying power with industry suppliers, this SIG is going through a rejuvenation under Nick’s Chair and is now also a place where new ideas and marketing information is shared. Its key objective is to develop a forum for marketers to come together, share best practice and learn about new and innovative methodology enabling each member company to develop their in-house marketing skills and talent.
The B2B Marketing SIG also takes issues identified in other BASDA Specialist Interest Groups and looks at the implications for Marketing. This is one of the few forums specifically focused on B2B marketing. Events additionally facilitate personal networking between like-minded professionals.
