IMS – LinkedIn Names New Director for the Southern Cone

Sebas GilA few days ago, I read on LinkedIn that Sebastián Gilfue was recently promoted from Senior Sales Manager at LinkedIn Argentina to Sales Director of LinkedIn for Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay. If my calculations aren't off, this would be his sixth year in LinkedIn's commercial area (first, through Fox, then now, through IMS). Good luck, Sebas!

The MMA Forum Argentina 2016

GoldyOn May 18, I was at an event organized by the Mobile Marketing Association at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Buenos Aires. I arrived right as Juan Göldy, CEO of Logan and Chairman of MMA, was giving the official opening to the event, and I was there almost until the end. It was a full day, with the presence of leading speakers in digital media, who shared their knowledge and experience in mobile.

I was at the breakfast organized by comScore on May 12 in Buenos Aires, during which we discussed the topic of multi-platform measurement in Argentina. If you want to know more about the event, you can download the presentation here.

Pau CutuliLovers of social media have their events, as well. In mid-June, Social Media Week (SMW) will take place in three cities simultaneously: Los Angeles, Mexico City and Milan.

The Hidden Power of Your Network

Lore AmaranteOn May 5, Lorena Amarante held the event celebrating the launch of her book, The Hidden Power of Your Network, in which she shares her experience with the potential that resources and digital networks that we have created can contribute to our professional development.
