MoMo Toronto – May 7th – What Makes a Great App?

The ‘app ecosystem’ has become a commonplace term since the introduction of revolutionary smartphones. With so many apps available on multiple platforms, it is becoming harder to discover great apps.

But what makes a great app? Is there a benchmark that is used to measure for quality and utility?

Our May event aims to cover this in more detail with three stakeholders from the mobile industry. Mark Evans, one of Canada’s best technology bloggers and leading social media expert, will moderate our panel discussion to uncover insights from Windows Phone, SAP Canada and The Working Group. Join us as these experts share their knowledge and expertise to define the key ingredients for a successful app based on best practices. Please make sure to Register Here.

MoMo Toronto – Dec. 5th – Tucows Launching Ting

Ting is a new mobile phone service that Tucows is launching in the US later this year. Its mission is to bring clarity and control to mobile services – and hopefully to save people money along the way.

Why is Tucows launching a mobile phone service? And why in America? Better still, how do they expect to launch a challenger brand in a country where the top three brands have a quarter of a billion subscribers and mega-million dollar marketing budgets?

Joining us to answer these and other questions is Tucows EVP, Products, Ken Schafer. He’ll give us a detailed explanation of their strategy and how they took Ting from conception to launch in less than a year on a shoestring budget.

Ken Schafer, EVP, Products at Tucows
Widely seen as a pioneer of Internet marketing in Canada, Ken has tirelessly promoted the Net as a significant force in business and culture.

Ken conceived and oversaw Sony Music Canada’s early online initiatives. From the first site in 1995, Ken’s team built a global web presence for 25 Canadian artists by pioneering viral and email marketing, rich media and community building long before they had become buzzwords.

In 1996 he co-founded the Association of Internet Marketing & Sales (AIMS), helping it become Canada’s largest organization for Internet decision-makers. In 1997 he co-authored the online portion of the Canadian Marketing Association’s (CMA) Code of Ethics, and also developed and taught the CMA’s 14-week certificate program in E-marketing. Ken founded One Degree, one of Canada’s leading websites for Internet marketing professionals.

As EVP, Products for Tucows he oversees the company’s long-term vision – to make simple, useful services that help people unlock the power of the Internet.
