Abstract: The recent financial meltdown, Internet bubble and the integrity violations of leaders have exposed a steep price when success turns out to be an illusion. The next generation of leaders must regroup and win in an atmosphere of risk and uncertainty. The point is no one knows exactly what to do. The critical difference is our ability to derive the correct lessons that turn our current experiences into a platform for producing personal and professional results. Blending the aggressive professional expectations of today with a plan for developing portable skills for tomorrow is a survival requirement in the new economy. Simply put, everyday is a race to improve and every meeting is performance review. Any cookbook approach is powerless with the unfolding situations of the real world, so no cookbooks. We'll discuss actionable, relevant and repeatable examples of how I-Cubed continues to punch above it's weight delivering technical solutions to customers/partners like BAE, Electrolux, Black & Decker, Adobe Systems and PTC.


The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is also available.
