Panel Discussion:Our Favorite Tech Toys – Not So Strictly Business
Summer is finally here, and it’s not too early to sign up for SPC’s annual summer barbecue.
This year’s event will feature a panel discussion, led by former SPC president Steve Balzac, of 7 Steps Ahead, LLC. Our presenters will share their hot tips on their favorite new and maybe not-so-new technologies. And there will be opportunity for attendees to do some show-and-tell of their own. So come prepared to share your favorite whizbang gizmos as well as to learn about other people’s.
And because it’s summer, the presentations won’t be all strictly business tools. Come prepared to share, or learn about, devices and apps that will make your life more fun, and not just more efficient or productive.
We’ve done this kind of session before, with new toys each time because the technology keeps changing. It’s always been well received, and it’s always interesting to see what we can learn from one another.
The Society of Professional Consultants typically takes a break during one or the other high-summer months off and skips a dinner meeting. This year, it is July that falls out.
Our lunchtime meet-ups for members and friends continue during the summer, however. This year we have two locations: Rebecca’s Café in Burlington, on the second Friday of the month, and the Tavern in the Square, Porter Square, Cambridge, where we meet on the fourth Friday. That gives us five lunches between Summer Solstice and Labor Day. Remember, no signup is required. See our events page for more information.
Meanwhile, the calendar for the new programming year is beginning to take shape. We’re looking forward to kicking off in September with a new presentation from Carl Harvey, with a working title of “The DNA of Sales.” The following month, we’ll have Bill Singer speaking on “How Consultants Can Thrive in the Face of Adversity.”Watch this space!
