Our first full day of the conference on August 18th has a powerful line-up which will kick-off with Thorton May, Futurist and Executive Director at the IT Leadership Academy. Thornton May is a respected futurist, adviser and educator whose insights on IT strategy have appeared in Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek and numerous computer industry publications. Following Thorton’s powerful keynote will be Dan O’Conner. Dan O’Conner is an internationally acclaimed author, speaker, and expert communication trainer. He specializes in delivering specific step-by-step tactics, danger phrases, power phrases and other tools that participants can immediately use to achieve instant results both at work and at home.
Next on the agenda we have two very informative breakout session options presented by our own GMIS members: “IT Strategic Planning - A Road map to Success” by Justin Heyman, Director of IT, Franklin Township, NJ and Robert McQueen, CIO, Princeton, NJ; and “Everything I Know About Leadership I Learned From a Siamese Cat Who Thinks He's A Chihuahua” by John Jones, IT Program Manager, Los Alamos County.
