Special Edition of the Manager Tech Talk at TechDays Vancouver: Mary Jo Foley on the Future of IT


Don’t you wish sometimes that you had a crystal ball showing you what technology is coming down the pipe and if it’s going to disrupt your status quo? It would just make life so much easier. No more guessing what the CIO is going to insist be deployed ASAP just because he read about it in PC magazine. You’d be ready for it already. No more jumping through hoops because a competing company is harnessing IT innovations allowing them to steal your customers and undercut your business. You’d be doing it already.

Ok well, I can’t quite show you the future, but I can give you 30 minutes with Mary Jo Foley. Mary Jo has been covering the tech industry for over 25 years focusing specifically on Microsoft and Microsoft technologies for most of that time. She has had a front row seat, watching, observing and chronicling new advances and innovations as they’ve unfolded, putting her in a unique position to be able to understand how certain trends will likely impact the industry.

Mary Jo will be joining Jonathan and me for a special edition of our online broadcast, the AlignIT Manager Tech Talk. In this episode, we’ll talk about what’s new at Microsoft and in tech. It’s not an episode you’ll want to miss!

If you’re attending TechDays Vancouver, you can join us in person over lunch time on the 1st day of the conference. If you’re not able to be there in person, you don’t have to miss out – we’ll be broadcasting it live on Ustream. Add this reminder in your calendar and join us on November 15 at 3pm ET.

    I'm only presenting in Toronto and Montreal. Too bad, I would have loved to meet Mary Jo in person.
