People are concerned with the healthcare legislation, but
Chris Smith, President, Cochlear Americas, Keynote Speaker at ACG Denver August 2, 2011enclosure-voice 1059_ 8/08/11 - At the ACG Denver August luncheon, we spoke with the keynote speaker, Chris Smith, President of Cochlear Americas, based here in Denver. Chris tells us that while he would never label any business or industry as 'recession proof', he would recommend healthcare as a solid industry to look into. Cochlear manufactures and distributes across the world, an implantable brain stimulator for people who are either born deaf or go deaf later in life. Instead of a hearing aid, which amplifies sound, this is a technology that is an implantable device that allows you to restore hearing. Larry asked Chris what he felt were the biggest challenges facing companies today. Chris said, "I think, at least when looking at our business it is finding great people." Identifying the right people, for character and culture is number one because at the end of the day, the people you hire, they are the team and they're going to build the business." Turning the table, Larry asked what was the biggest opportunity. Chris went with people, "I think there are amazing people out there today. Especially if you look at what's going on with unemployment across this country. I think there's a lot of wonderful people that are available to go in and make an incredible impact in organizations. We've always said, that the best people with the best strategies win." As an aside, Chris points out that, "Healthcare has its challenges. People are concerned with the healthcare legislation, but at the same time, this is a country that has always provided healthcare to its population." Chris believes with where technology is going, and the innovations are going, the length and quality of life is going to be extended. Advice for entrepreneurs looking at healthcare, "Hire for character, then competency. Make sure from a character and culture perspective that there is a right fit with the organization. People make mistakes along the way, more for this is the job I want as opposed to this is the company or the culture I want." Second piece of advice is...listen for more...

Hire the absolute best people: It's all about people
Art Rancis, International Entrepreneurenclosure-voice 1057_ 8/01/11 - Larry sat down with Art Rancis to talk about leaders and entrepreneurs. Larry asked, "What are the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs and leaders, today?" Art pointed out that he is a big people person - "...without people, nothing happens! Frankly the biggest challenge for those companies today is, that many of them have lost sight of hiring the absolute best people." A book that Art recommends, written by a Boulder author, David Thielen, is The 12 Simple Secrets of Microsoft Management. And Bill Gates offered number four, which is "always, always hire the very best you can find'. Larry tried flipping the coin and asked, what are the biggest opportunities today? Knowing Art you may guess it is '...hiring the very best people. It's not a cop out. You will maximize and realize a lot of success if you hire the very best people who can execute." We've all heard the stories of great products failing because of lack of execution. And yet a lot of very mediocre products that succeed because of great execution. "So, it's still people, you've got to bring them in and thrive as a company that way." Art gives advice to individuals and organizations all the time - What is that advice? Art said, "Would you be upset with me if I said, hire the very best people." ... It's a very strong belief for Art! But he adds, "Stay nimble. In today's environment you've got to move faster. That's a two edged sword. While you have lots more information available to you to be a better decision maker, but with the pressures of cell phones, texting and quickly turning around decisions - sometimes you may not think thoroughly enough." Larry couldn't agree more, referring to his book, Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos, he points to a line he wrote, "People are the source of all problems, and people are the source of all solutions."

Roisin Pelley, Saffron Education, India From Denver: Exploring South Asia's entrepreneurial culture
enclosure-voice 1058_ 8/08/11 - From learning about traditional Indian medicine in Varanasi, exploring Chinese culture in Shanghai, to studying Gross National Happiness in Bhutan, or working with a NGO founded by Gandhi; Saffron Education offers innovative programs, internships and teaching opportunities for students interested in gaining an experience of South Asian culture beyond the classroom. Roisin Pelley, Denver resident is taking on a big challenge with her new job at Saffron Education. We managed to get a few minutes of her time before her departure this weekend for Bombay, India. This exciting venture sprung from Roisin's participation in the Leadership Institute at Harvard College (LIHC). Saffron Education is doing study abroad programs and internships and volunteer experiences throughout South Asia for students from high school, undergraduates and MBA levels. One of the most exciting opportunities is Bhutan, a small country and Constitutional monarchy that doesn't allow many tourists. Saffron's first program was run in Bhutan with the youth development program there. "Our students from America taught teachers there and got really involved in the community", said Roisin . "Knowing the cultural complexities and the way business works, the way the culture affects business, is really crucial for being able to expand successfully. Having those cultural skills that students get by visiting companies and meeting people can be a huge asset to them when they're in the workforce." India presents a great environment for entrepreneurship with their growing economy. People are always starting new companies and looking at different ways to improve life there because there certainly are lots of things that need to be done. It's a great place to be creative in and think of new solutions and how they can fit such a complex country. With 1.2 billion people, most products or services are going to find some kind of market.

July was interesting, with high profile summer gatherings...
Silicon Flatirons Passing the Baton Back Ceremony 7/7/2011enclosure-voice 1060_ 8/08/11 - It was a balanced month beginning with Independence day. We saw the return of our own Phil Weiser, Silicon Flatirons founder; and Dean of the CU Law School, back from Washington D.C. where he spent the last two years serving our country. You will find a series of videos on YouTube and Stories on the Communications Technology Professionals CTP Channel, chronicling that celebration... Great photos by w3w3®. So many Coloradoans were on vacation/business trips and some had trouble getting back to DIA with the problems presented by some pretty wild weather. Ask Jeffrey Pearl of IP5280, four stand-by flights to get back for APEX (He was a winner...).
     Speaking of... APEX Awards - July 12, 2011 at Denver University -Newman Center These were the last APEX Awards to be presented by CSIA, which is now known as the Colorado Technology Association (and CTA will, of course, continue the APEX annual awards program). Photos...
     The National Center for Women in Technology, NCWIT, is back with an exciting young woman whose software will bring some 'cents' to your social networking and marketing efforts. That's Victoria Ransom with her third successful startup, WildfireApp. She offers encouragement to young women in high school and college to go for the golden future in IT, computer science, and engineering... Uncle Sam Wants You to help keep our country strong! And that does seem to be the theme for this July 2011.

Debora Langer, Board Member, CTP Convergence of telecommunications along with the smart grid
enclosure-voice 1054_ 8/01/11 - "Two main initiatives come to mind", said Debora Langer. "One is the convergence of telecommunications along with the smart grid. The other emerging technology that we're seeing involves getting broadband out to the rural communities with 4G and LTE solutions." Debora Langer serves on the board of CTP, the Communications Technology Professionals, for the second year now. A favorite organization for w3w3®, which we've covered for many years, going back to when it was called Denver Telecommunication Professionals. They've been through a great deal, the telecommunications industry was hit so hard a number of years ago - and this organization not only survived but in fact has really grown. Debora tells us that Colorado is really embracing the progressive technologies and CTP is working hard to keep their programs current and consistent with what is being implemented in Colorado. Larry pointed out, "When some people first heard the tech/grid relationship with telecommunications there was some confusion." Debora said, "They didn't really understand it, you're absolutely right. And, that's part of CTP's mission is to educate the community and highlight what's going on in Colorado. With the rural broadband initiative, we're going to have an event in September. What we're seeing there, we've got EagleNet that was just awarded $100 million, and we've got Open Range Communications that got $257 million... so the State of Colorado is embracing the need to get rural broadband out to communities and then all the applications and all the community services that go along with that. Healthcare, education and public safety are part of why you have a broadband network." Listen for more...

Stu Stern, CEO, Gorilla Logic The most important differentiator is that they are free
enclosure-voice 1056_ 8/01/11 - We're here to talk about a very interesting topic that is important to all businesses, whether they're techies or not. And we're here with Stu Stern who is the CEO of Gorilla Logic and the creator of a couple of programs, FoneMonkey and FlexMonkey. You know, there are a lot of people who love 'open source' and there are people who don't know anything about open source and don't use it. Larry asked Stu, “How are open source tools different than the other things out in the market place?” Listen to this interview and you will learn about the importance of functional testing tools, and how they can not only help your engineering teams with automated testing, but can be expanded to help with a companies unit testing and continuous integration environments. This interview discusses the importance of functional testing tools and how making these tools being free and open source can benefit an entire ecosystem of developers, Development Managers and CTO’s looking for ways to make their applications better for the companies they work for. Stu said, "Next week Gorilla Logic is releasing a new version of FlexMonkey. Stu explains their two tools are each for automated testing of Rich Internet Applications (RIA). FoneMonkey is for IOS applications, those are iPhone and iPad applications. And FlexMonkey is for the Adobe Flex Platform which runs any Flash player. Essentially they replace manual testers with automated testing, making the testing process much faster and more reliable." There's much more...
