Ogilvy & Ogilvy is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the 140 Conference Montreal for 2012. The #140Conf is an exploration on the effects that Social Media is having on "The state of now". What does that mean? It means that Social Media, which includes Twitter, online games like Farmville, Blogs, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Foursquare is changing the face of how we live, how we communicate and how we do business.
Ogilvy & Ogilvy was built on relationships. We have not been active in advertising, we rely on word of mouth. Many of our clients are third generation clients, and as time has passed we have managed to maintain those relationships. As the world has changed we have realized we want to make sure that our clients and our community have a way to connect with us. Social media has presented options to find more ways to connect and be involved.
When the opportunity to support the #140Conf and bring this international conference to Montreal came up, it made sense that if Social Media is about relationships, and this is what Ogilvy has built a business on for over 85 years now, that sharing the power of communication and bringing the conference to Montreal was in perfect alignment with our values and goals. We want to support "making the world a smaller place", give back to our community and enhance communication and relationship building using these social tools.
Like many out there, as a business, we are just learning about the possibilities. We look forward to joining forces with other relationship conscious brands in sponsoring the event as we continue on our path to use Social Media to create new ways for our clients to communicate with us and engage with our community. The #140conf provides an opportunity for individuals and businesses alike to learn how to connect and share in the experiences others are having using these tools to improve service, reach out to their communities and strengthen relationships.
All part of our journey and commitment to continue to make ourselves accessible to our clients, and assure we maintain our personal service values.
We are proud to support this conference which is all about connecting and making sure that as the world grows, as business gets faster, as lives get busier - we always take that time to find ways of maintaining and building strong relationships one client at a time.
