Inspired Minds, the organizers of the World Summit AI, whose second edition is currently taking place in Amsterdam, have announced that they will be holding a similar event in the Americas from 2019 to 2021. Thus, the World Summit AI Americas will be held in Montréal for at least three years.

Tourisme Montréal has signed a four-year agreement with Inspired Minds, the London-based firm behind Word Summit AI. The fact that Montréal was selected to host the Americas version of the event confirms the destination’s leadership in artificial intelligence (AI). The event is expected to attract 6,000 participants, which will amount to 32,500 room nights in Montréal hotels during this period.

“I am delighted that the collaboration between Tourisme Montréal and Inspired Minds has led to this exciting announcement. I would like to thank the entire AI community in Montréal, and in particular Yoshua Bengio from the University of Montréal and Element IA for helping make this possible,” said Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.

In the past few years, Montréal has become a global hub for research and excellence in AI. The city boasts a strong academic base, particularly at McGill University and the University of Montréal, where Professor Yoshua Bengio, the leading expert in the field, works. Montréal is also home to the Institut de valorisation des données (IVADO), and has attracted major digital players such as Google, Microsoft, IBM, Samsung, Thalès and Facebook, all of which have set up AI research labs in the city.

“We are very proud to welcome the coming editions of the World Summit AI. The quality of our research centres and the dynamism of our innovation ecosystem make Montréal the ideal place to discuss the latest advances in the field of intelligence,” said Montréal Mayor Valérie Plante.

“The BEC team, together with the Canadian High Commission in London, identified this bid opportunity for Canada and hosted the client to BEC’s inaugural Innovate Canada in Montréal this past May, but it was the collaboration between Tourisme Montréal and Montréal’s AI community that solidified the win,” says Chantal Sturk-Nadeau, Executive Director of Business Events Canada. “Proof, yet again, that when we all work together great things can be accomplished.”

Crossword Cybersecurity Plc (AIM:CCS, “Crossword”, the “Company” or the “Group”), the technology commercialisation company focused solely on cyber security and risk, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Leonardo MW Ltd (“Leonardo”), a global high-tech Aerospace Defence and Security company.

Crossword is rapidly becoming a leading player in the provision of risk assurance systems. Rizikon Assurance allows organisations to assess, assure, visualise and, ultimately, control third party risk.

The cooperation between Crossword and Leonardo will enable Leonardo’s National Cyber Security Centre’s certified cyber consultancy to use Rizikon Assurance to enhance its leading risk assessment and risk management practice for customers throughout the world. Leonardo targets its cyber security offerings at Government, Defence and Critical National Infrastructure both in the UK and internationally. Supporting that offering with industry-leading tooling such as Rizikon Assurance, will further improve outcomes for customers.

The MoU states an intention to collaborate across multiple workstreams, including an agreement to bid for certain significant contracts across multiple industries throughout 2020, utilising Crossword’s flagship third party risk management solution Rizikon Assurance and Leonardo’s extensive expertise in integration, cyber and third-party assurance. A recent Ponemon Institute survey found that 56% of data breaches were caused by a third-party vendor and with this issue gaining in media and regulatory attention, it is critical that businesses understand their third-party risk and how to mitigate it. Crossword’s Rizikon Assurance and Leonardo’s cyber and supply chain assurance capability perfectly align to address this growing requirement.

The MoU also explores opportunities to partner to deliver technology commercialisation, focusing on cybersecurity research in UK universities and bringing cutting edge technology to market.

Jake Holloway, Crossword’s Business Development Director, said: “Having Leonardo as a partner will allow us to respond to much larger opportunities for our products like Rizikon Assurance. This is a big step in our development as a business.”

5 Tips For Efficient Business Management

  1. Hire good professionals

Yes, we know this sounds like an obvious tip, but it isn’t. The job market has changed a lot, and skills are currently less valued than one’s qualities. This is because techniques can be learned, but personal characteristics are unlikely to change. For more information you can check at Zoe Talent Solutions.com

So, before you know if your business team knows everything about the area, make sure they are willing to learn constantly, receive positive feedback, and are emotionally stable.

If they can sell? Well, that can be taught.

  1. Have a clear sales strategy

Having the best sales team is not enough without a well-defined sales strategy. It is crucial that everyone knows where they are paddling, because if they do not, each will try to get to a different place and the company will not get anywhere.

  • For this, it is important that everyone be aware of some points:
  • business target audience;
  • company goals;
  • commissions and bonuses for results.
  1. Empower Your Business Management Team

Generally, business managers encourage their team to take sales training and courses. In fact, it is essential that those who work in the area are always improving their techniques.

However, notions of organization, management and discipline can make a big difference in the performance of your collaborators. Therefore, encourage the search for this knowledge.

  1. Encourage information sharing

We often find that a sales team is disunited through individual pursuit of goals and commissions. But a good manager must know how to maintain healthy competition while encouraging group work.

Thus, it is important to suggest sharing information among the team so that everyone can help each other and thus bring better results to the company.

Keeping this door open makes communication much better and employees feel comfortable criticizing or suggesting sales strategies, increasing not only the results but also the engagement.

  1. Create a sense of business ownership

If you want to have really significant results in your sales, create a sense of business ownership with your team. Employees should embrace the company as their own. But, this is not only done with motivation training.

Ideally, those who achieve the best results can somehow be rewarded with a share of the profits or have a different career path, for example. This way, she will feel “partner” with the company and not just an employee.

Efficient business management is not one that sets goals, but makes the team understand the importance of achieving those goals. And this happens when people accept their skills and understand that they are not just sales tools, but a fundamental part of business success.
