I will be appearing at two events in Omaha in the next couple of weeks.
On April 4, I will be telling Startup Stories at the Midwestern Entrepreneurship Conference at Kaneko. My speaking slot is at 3:05, and should run 40 minutes. MWEC is “a two day conference that is for college students, young professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs to learn from highly successful young entrepreneurs and a few seasoned professionals.” As my friend Dave Ball pointed out, by process of elimination, I must be a seasoned professional.

On April 15-16, I will be speaking at Infotec, the biggest tech conference in the Midwest. It’s a great opportunity, and should be a ton of fun, as I’m facilitating What’s Your Problem, an interactive problem-solving session.
WYP is a fast-paced, interactive problem-solving exercise, where we take the smart talented people of Infotec and set them loose on real-world tech problems offered by the attendees. The unusual mix of talents and perspectives at Infotec make for a unique collaborative problem-solving team. Ask the community about a difficult issue you’re working on. Or just participate and lend your perspective to another community member’s problem. This convention is full of smart people. Here’s your chance to work with them in real time.
I’m particularly looking forward to working with Dan Zarrella, Chief Data Scientist at Hubspot, and the smartest man in social media. (Really.) We will have a WYP session for each track– Business Intelligence, Mobile, Marketing Technology (where Dan will participate), and Security. Infotec has a great mix of tech experts, and tapping into the collective knowledge to solve real problems should be a great experience.

Wish me luck.
