A High Tech, High Touch Plan For Success
Tim Sanders - Author & People-centric Business Expert

Tim Sanders

The secret to successful activities, events and programs lies at the intersection of technology and people. Sanders, a leading expert in both subjects, will talk about how you can become masters at both, and drive the success of your organization at the same time. He'll underscore how technology can improve the customer, user or participant experience and at the same time, give your bottom-line a boost. Those who get this right are what he calls "Information Masters" and his surprising reveal is that people skills, culture and leadership are 50% of the formula. He'll offer ideas on how mentorship, knowledge sharing, networking and deep listening can propel our work relationships forward, which truly allows us to lead others into the future. His talk will combine futurism with people-skills for modern times, which should give us a lot to think about in our roles at work as well as in our communities.
