A great way to start the list is by highlighting our most acclaimed webinars of 2023. Three of them stand out for the quality of their guests, the level of conversation, and the size of the attendance watching live when first aired.

Privacy and UX: Building trust in a data-driven world
Another collaboration between our CEO and Luiza Jarovsky, this time accompanied by Estelle Hary, Co-Founder at Design Friction & Designer at the CNIL, this webinar is key to understanding the ins and outs of Privacy UX.
In an engaged conversation between the three speakers, we learned how to optimize UX experiences that prioritize privacy, what the dos and don'ts of Privacy UX are, the importance of transparency in data collection and usage, and the impact of privacy policies and how they can be made more user-friendly.

Unlocking data privacy: A conversation with Max Schrems
Last but certainly not least, our conversation with renowned Austrian privacy lawyer, activist, and chairperson of NOYB, Max Schrems, was among our most-viewed online webinars of 2023, with over 500 in attendance.

Navigate the main data privacy industry news
Understanding the latest data privacy news and their implications can turn into a headache. Throughout the years, we’ve made it our mission to help decrypt data privacy news for our audience, and webinars are a great way to do that while interacting with people directly. Last year was no exception, covering hot topics in the world of privacy.
Mastering privacy-first advertising: The Google CMP certification and IAB TCF v2.2
In May 2023, Google made a significant announcement, requiring publishers and developers using Google products to implement a Google-certified CMP when serving ads to EEA and UK users. This came as IAB Europe announced its Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) v2.2.
At a time of confusion for many of our clients, partners, and audiences, our CEO, Romain Gauthier, sat down with Google’s Global Strategy Lead, Regulation, and Privacy, Samuel S. Morse, to clarify things.
Together, they discussed the reasons behind the TCF v2.2 & Google CMP Certification, the impact of the new decisions on mobile and gaming industries using AdMob, what is required from organizations, and more.
Stay compliant with Google Analytics 4 (GA4) and grow your business!
A major event of 2023 was the introduction of Google Analytics 4 (GA4), replacing Universal Analytics (UA) for good. The migration raised a lot of questions, which we were able to address:
What are the key steps to begin using GA4?
What is changing in terms of privacy?
What is Consent Mode for GA4?
What are the major tracking advantages with GA4 and how to benefit from them?
Our CEO, Romain Gauthier, sat down with our friends at Jellyfish Gabriel Luxembourger, Data & Analytics Director, and Adrien Hug-Korda, DPO, to take a deep dive into what became one of our must-watch webinars of the year for everyone migrating to GA4.

Navigating the Intersection of Analytics and Privacy UX
As data privacy and user experience become more important, their impact on analytics is often overlooked.
In a conversation between our VP of Product Jeff Wheeler and Dana DiTomaso, Founder & Lead Instructor at Kick Point Playbook, we learned about the need for privacy-first experiences, the Digital Market Act (DMA), Global Privacy UX Solutions at Didomi, and the future of analytics: the cookieless era, TCF v2.2, Google's CMP Certification and the Privacy Sandbox.
