Do you ever wonder why some women who have the same expertise you do are more recognized, quoted and referred to?

In a world full of experts, being an authority is key to elevating your career. If you are wondering how to get the wheels in motion, this webinar is for you.

There's a lot of buzz about using social media, creating content and collaborating online to build your personal brand, but success starts with knowing deep-dive strategies (real-deal action items) that you can do to start momentum.

Whether you work for a corporation, have your own business or want to change your career, this webinar will give you the keys to start driving your expertise in an awesome authority direction. You don't need a big bank account to grow your credibility, visibility and sell-ability thanks to today's web-driven world, you just need to get your foot on the pedal and move in the right direction.

After the webinar, you will walk away with:

- Immediate first steps to set the foundation to establish an authority status.
- Simple steps that you can do to create compelling content (seriously, simple - Lorrie knows you have work to do!) that is meaningful and matters.

Presenters: Lamar Shahbazian, Senior Director, Product Management, Analytic Tool, FICO and Michelle Brodale, Director of Software Engineering, FICO

In this webinar, we will dig into an HR Employee Attrition and Performance sample data set to explain the advantages of developing a decision management solution with a web service endpoint and informing that solution through the use of analytics software.

FICO's Decision Management Suite (DM Suite) enables businesses to leverage their data to make better decisions through the use of advanced analytics, optimization, rules and decision management.

FICO leveraged analytics to create a credit score over 60 years ago, and continues to make strides in advanced analytics.

FICO's DM Suite operates in the background of countless industries, from flight and crew scheduling for Southwest to improving energy yield for WindFarmDesigns to operationalizing analytics through the entire Hewlett Packard Enterprise. How does this technology work to dictate so many important decisions in such diverse industries? Attend this webinar for a detailed walkthrough of the development and implementation of an HR Attrition solution.
