Speaker Michael Bryant
Topic Info

Monday, January 8, 2018

IEEE Consultants’ Network of San Diego

Topic: Building the Consultant Practice of Tomorrow Using Today’s Online Tools
Speaker: Michael Bryant.

The past few years have seen an explosion of online tools to help businesses automate. These tools have transformed the way companies operate. Today’s “Born in the Cloud” companies have little resemblance to organizations that were running 10 years ago. Larger established companies are struggling to adapt to the rapidly changing world.

This presentation will focus on three of these cloud technologies. The goal is to discuss how small consulting companies can utilize these three tools to increase their marketing reach, decrease their cost of doing business and thus increase their profitability.

The three areas of discussion are: e-mail distribution systems, video meeting services, and shared data workspaces. Each section will include real life examples on how companies can use these technologies to transform their operations.

Follow up on your resolutions for your company in 2018, get ideas to simplify your operations. Join us for this presentation and learn how other companies are using today’s business technology.
