The Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL) is organzing a Seminar and Executive Forum on “Innovative Google Technologies to Boost up Your Business” under the theme, ”Working Without Boundaries“.This knowledge offering to the members and business community is an another main milestone by FCCISL.

The event is enriched with resource persons from Google South East Asia. This event will be held on Wednesday, 16th May at Hotel Galadari, Colombo and Thursday, 17th May at Plant Genetic Resource Center, Kandy. The objectives are to provide extensive education on Google products, demonstrate how these products can help to launch, run and optimize business as well as increase productivity and inspire the captains of businesses to explore innovative business trends.

Even with all of the online marketing tools available today, one is truly missing out if he or she does not evaluate the opportunities to execute a social or online strategy that compliments traditional organizational marketing. Organizations should be innovative and creative enough to choose the appropriate strategy for their business. Does your organization have the experience, knowledge and skills to integrate the traditional and online marketing strategies required to render your product or service successful? This event, organized by the FCCISL, is a platform to evaluate the opportunities you can explore.

The programme is most suitable for business users, CEOs, CIOs, IT Managers, Online Marketers, Media Agencies, Journalists, Business Service Providers and anybody who is passionate about working without boundaries and exploring how new technologies and trends can change their business.

The speakers will discuss Google products, including Search and Display advertising, Mobile advertising, YouTube, Google+, Chrome, Google Maps and Google Apps. Topics will include how to improve ROI, increase reach and awareness and drive more traffic to your website as well as the impact of the internet on emerging South and South East Asian markets.

Whether you are a CEO, IT Manager, businessman, Online Marketer or Service Provider, you need your employees and co-workers to collaborate seamlessly across organizational, geographic and linguistic barriers. You need them to do more on their mobile devices than just send emails. You want a model that is cost-effective and predictable and you want to spend half as much on IT as you do today. By participating in the morning training session and the evening executive forum, you will gain extensive knowledge and understanding of how you can increase productivity and reduce the cost of your operations.

Speakers from Google include Ms. Jana Levene, Emerging Market Development Consultant, South East Asia, Ms. Aileen Apolo, Head of Outreach, Southeast Asia and Mr. Dushyant Sapre, Enterprise Sales Manager, South Asia.
