The latest from SobelMedia including our column "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire,  a popular web magazine  focused on intelligent information management, digital customer experience management and the emergence of social business tools and practices.


It has been a rather hectic few weeks and I apologize that I have been negligent with SobelMedia News. However, now that I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel I hope to be back on track on a weekly basis.

That said, lots of interesting stuff this week along with some really great events coming up in the next few weeks you are not going to want to miss.

So as I always say...stay tuned!

"Synchrony's Toni White: Target Both Boomers and Millennials" this week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire.

Toni White, EVP and CMO of Synchrony Financial , the erstwhile GE Capital's new incarnation in the marketplace, is expert at using analytics to create new and disruptive product and customer service models for the financial services industry. The irony is that White herself is a veritable poster child for career continuity, having spent nearly four decades wi th the same employer.
However, White will assure you that the challenge of transforming GE Capital from its roots as a financer of major appliance purchases to Synchrony's current position as a major provider of private issue credit cards, B2B installment financing and retail banking has left her little time over the years to be bored.

"Recruiter Fran Pomerantz Searches for Digital Excellence" 

This week on "Connecting...with Bill Sobel" on CMSWire. 

"Fran Pomerantz, founder of New York City-based  retained search firm The Pomerantz Group, may never see a résumé as unique, serendipitous, and utterly fearless, as her own.
As a digital media pioneer and visionary, Pomerantz's embrace of new ideas, innate business acumen and openness to personal reinvention have taken her from Los Angeles to Manhattan and from elementary school teaching to executive recruiting."
"Muck Rack CEO Gregory Galant Makes Media Look Easy"

"If Gregory Galant, CEO of Sawhorse Media, which includes digital PR and journalism platform Muck Rack as well as the Shorty Awards honoring the best of social media,  ever feels he's running out of space on his exceptional bio, perhaps he could simply drop his last name. After all, as @gregory, a charter member of Twitter's First Name Club, he hasn't needed it for years."

We've got some exciting interviews coming up that you won't want to subscribe to our weekly newsletter and/or follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter

Techfugees NY Collaborative Conference

The first Techfugees NY creative conference will take place on February 9 in New York City. The event will bring together expertise from tech, design, innovation, media and other communities to explore solutions to the global refugee crisis.

Techfugees NY will bring together the smartest minds in technology, design, innovation, media and humanitarian work for a series of discussions and work sessions focused on how to apply the expertise that exists within the United States to solving challenges related to the global refugee crisis. We will harness this expertise to break down the crisis to understand the actual challenges facing refugees, and we will take real steps toward actual solutions.


It's that time of year start thinking about registering for one of the best conferences in New York City.

March 7-8, 2016 - Columbia University - New York City

BRITE '16 will bring together 500-600 leaders from business, technology, media, and marketing to discuss how technology and innovation are transforming the ways that companies build and sustain great brands.

BRITE offers a different blend of thinkers and doers, both onstage and off, than you will find at any other event.
