Strategic Events for C-Level Executives, Senior Managers, and Business Owners

Explanations in English using business terms, not jargon.
The list of technologies that could offer companies big-time benefits, or lead to big-time disasters, is daunting. So daunting, in fact, that top management might be tempted to throw up their hands and let lower-level managers referee the debate over information technology.
But that is exactly what they shouldn’t do.

Four Questions Every CEO Should Ask About IT
Wall Street Journal
Buzzwords. Trends. Overwhelmed?
No matter what the trend, how often it changes, or the latest buzzwords — technology can be overwhelming if it’s not one of your personal core competencies. To ignore it is dangerous. To follow it blindly is risky. You need to understand enough, at a high level, to know how it impacts your organization.
That’s what Technology Minded events are all about. Real world technology discussions in non-technical terms.
Anyone can talk at you. We'll talk with you.
Often, conversations about technology focus on technical details instead of the big picture, impact, and risk associated with it. It may be hard to see the incredible opportunities, or dangers, simply because of a disconnect between management and those that provide technology.
Our experience comes from explaining technology to those that aren't technical. Our team has regularly appeared on live mass media outlets: everything from frequent on-air and in studio interviews at KNX 1070 (AM radio in Los Angeles), to CNBC, to CBS National News. We've created publications to technology markets, and provided background and content for countless news organizations including Reuters, the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times.
Our stable of over 400 speakers includes subject matter experts, industry experts, and leaders. Let us match the right ones to you.
But don't take our word for it, see what C-Level executives and senior management say about their experience with us.
Fad or Effective?
So often, technology is pursued for technology sake, and organizations cycle through it as if the latest fad will guarantees success. The issue is making real strategy and business practice blossom by embracing technology as a tool, rather than the answer.
Technology Minded events are there to not only help your leaders understand the tools in non-technical terms, but put them in an environment to help see using technology as tools in pursuit of a strategy.
New technology is common, new thinking is rare.
