I-COM Working Groups
The Working Groups are one of three types of forums that I-COM Global offers and make up the foundation of our organisation. They comprise 450 industry leaders working in more than 25 groups covering the forefront of Smart Data Marketing. The groups provide valuable interactions and learning between our members as well as decision-making input which guides I-COM’s direction.
The I-COM Boards are addressing cutting edge topics and making decisions in consensus, relevant to the specific programme content that they each control.
The I-COM Councils are designed to address a specific topic identified by our Members. The overall goals are to provide insights on the latest opportunities and challenges as well as guidance and leadership for the entire Data community.
If you are interested in getting involved in one of the I-COM Working Groups, we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact our membership department.
