Break Through Barriers

I tell cre­ative sto­ries about com­plex top­ics so that you can break through bar­ri­ers the pre­vent­ing your cus­tomers from tak­ing action.

At CA Tech­nolo­gies I tell sto­ries about enter­prise tech­nol­o­gy with equal flair to engi­neers, sales peo­ple, or busi­ness exec­u­tives. My sto­ries are both rel­e­vant and com­pelling to the lis­ten­er; they res­onate with peo­ple.

I also tell sto­ries about build­ing wealth and invest­ing. In fact, I wrote a book (avail­able at book­stores every­where).

I’m avail­able to speak at events or edu­cate your team about the impact of tech­nol­o­gy on your busi­ness. I often focus on the “Why?” for my audi­ences with a side of “How to start?”.

Peo­ple leave my ses­sions with a new way to frame their busi­ness chal­lenges so that dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion teams can achieve bet­ter align­ment and have a clear way for­ward towards inno­vat­ing their busi­ness with soft­ware.

David brings refreshing thought leadership, insight and a high level of energy and enthusiasm by pulling on current trends and thinking outside the box. He approaches problems with no limiting beliefs and has a productive approach to innovative solution development.

My Next Appearance

Smart Cities International Symposium and Exhibition

Going Native: Cit­i­zens, Smart Cities, and Secu­ri­ty

In this ses­sion, I will pro­vide a unique point of view, informed by real-world suc­cess sto­ries, on how Smart City secu­ri­ty can help to max­i­mize the ROI of ‘smart’ projects while mean­ing­ful­ly engag­ing cit­i­zens.

Smart City suc­cess will come from many micro mobile-inter­ac­tions with the smart infra­struc­ture rather than one mono­lith­ic smart-city solu­tion. This usage pat­tern changes the secu­ri­ty user expe­ri­ence for cit­i­zens, devel­op­ers, and those respon­si­ble for smart city secu­ri­ty in ways that are impor­tant to explic­it­ly high­light.

My Brain, Your Inbox.

I believe that influencers inside of large organizations (like myself) should take advantage of email marketing techniques at an individual level to expand one's reach and impact. Some might call this 'personal branding'.

When you join me here, I'll share my thoughts on what matters to our customers and ideas that will help you do a better job as a CA employee, partner, or customer.

If you're a CA employee, I suggest using a personal email address OR going into our spam folder to whitelist my email address / this newsletter. After joining, you'll get a confirmation email. If you don't, you want to look inside your spam folder to make sure you complete signing-up and get future emails.
