Web Wednesday with Chris Dobson, Executive VP, Global Ad Sales for BBC Worldwide and BBC.com

Web Wednesday is THIS Wednesday, the 10th of June (the last day of AdTech).  Remember that we are also at a new location this month – BALACLAVA’s at the Suntec Convention Centre.  6pm till 8:30pm!

chrisdobson170.jpgThe speaker this month all the way from London is Chris Dobson, Executive VP, Global Ad Sales for BBC Worldwide and BBC.com.  Chris will be sharing his insights on ‘Digital Media Business Models – on the critical list?’   Chris used to run global adsales at MSN and is ex-MTV so he has some pretty interesting perspectives having been on the portal side and now back to the publisher side.  Given what the BBC.com is doing with video in the UK (their video on demand platform uses something like 7% of all UK traffic) I am sure that he can also share some interesting things about video online.

This month our sponsor, the BBC.com will be providing you the first drink of the evening.  The event is at Balaclava at the Suntec convention centre so it is right next to AdTech.  Head on over after the last session.  The party starts at 6pm!

The BBC.com will also be giving away 3 of the new super slim iPod Shuffles at the event, so make sure that you leave your card at the door.

This is going to be a great event- make sure that you don’t miss it!

See you Wednesday evening at 6pm at Balaclava!

Best,
Kevin, Joe and Andy

Web Wednesday Singapore 12.0 – February 25th – Mobile and Web Metrics – Invitation

Dear Digerati

Web Wednesday Welcomes you to the first month of the year of the OX – BULL! A time for new beginnings for strength and optimism and above all a time for insights into the year.
With this in mind, Web Wednesday warmly welcomes Internet measurement guru Will Hodgman from the USA. Will is currently the Executive Vice President for International and M:Metrics for ComScore.
For those of you who look at online advertising, Will was the founder of AdRelevance – the online advertising measurement tool and he was also the founder of the mobile measurement firm, M:Metrics. Will sold M:Metrics to comScore last year and now runs their mobile measurement business as well as comScore’s international business.

Will shall give us a scintillating look at some interesting digital measurement data and insights, hopefully both for mobile and the web.
Web Wednesday Singapore will be held again at the Geek Terminal Singapore (55 Market Street, behind Raffles Place)

NEXT Wednesday, February 25th 2009 from 6:30pm till 8:30pm (although you are always welcome to stay…).

Hope to see you there!
