Roger Grace Authors Eight-Part Series on Sensor/MEMS

Sensors Insights by Mat Dirjish

Roger Grace, president of Roger Grace Associates and recipient of the 2016 Sensors Industry Impact Award, is scheduled to debut the first of an eight-part series on MEMS/Sensors Marketing.  Roger, as a 35 year veteran as a sensor marketing consultant, has conducted extensive interviews with over 15 MEMS/sensors highly credentialed executives to create this material.

Armed with this information as well as his own, “MEMS/Sensors Marketing: Oxymoron or Opportunity” will provide answers to critical issues including:

  • Listening to the “voice of the customer”
  • Insider tips and the role of marketing communications for a successful marketing campaign
  • Market research: past failures and future opportunities
  • Is the “shine” off of MEMS?
  • Similarities and differences in MEMS/sensor marketing vs. IC marketing
  • The role of marketing in the funding process….and many more.

The series will be filled with pragmatic (sorry Harvard Graduate Business School) and personal information based on the more than the 350 plus years of combined MEMS/sensor industry experiences of the interviewees.   This is a not to be missed opportunity to gain some very valuable knowledge for the MEMS/sensor community.
