Top Tech Trends

The Networking Lunch Starts at 11:45

Marriott "Long Beach Airport" Hotel

Dave Berkus

Our favorite technology prognosticator, Dave Berkus, returns to analyze the speed of technology change in the last 15 years, and which four principal arenas will account for much of the growth in the next 15 years. It's a great session for those looking to invest their time and talent during this next decade and beyond.

Dave will focus upon…

  • Which 1998 trends from Dave's workshop that year were hits or misses?
  • What four major areas of tech will dominate the 21st century in American innovation?
  • How should you plan to take advantage of those trends that affect your business?
  • What new developments will propel Moore's Law through another twenty or more years?
  • Which of the tech trends we constantly hear about are over or under hyped?
  • How have some of the trends crossed over to affect others? And does this help or hinder planning?
  • What were the major takeaways form the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show? And how will they affect you?

These and other important questions will be answered by Dave in his presentation, and surely will lead to a lively discussion to follow.

Sharing the stage with Dave to enlighten us on the latest Life Science trends will be ABL’s 2014 ABBY Award winner who heads Cynvenio Biosystems, a cancer diagnostics company focused on transforming cancer treatment and management through the molecular analysis of cancer biomarkers in blood. With a global background in the Life Sciences, Andre has kept his finger on the pulse of the industry’s latest developments that truly will be life changing and enhancing.

During the Round Table Discussion period, Dave will challenge you to identify which tech trend/s will most likely have the greatest impact on your tech – or healthcare – business. Then, Dave will layout important questions for you to brainstorm with your Group. Your net takeaways from this Discussion alone could make attending this event one of your most important decisions of the year.

Networking opportunities: Come early for the light lunch and plan to stay after the Round Table Discussion to network with and cement relationships with your current and new-found Trusted Advisors.
